I began my music education in 2000 in Public Music School in Zagan, in the guitar class of MA Adam Mikulski. Under his conduction I took part in many guitar competitions on which I have been awarded several times:

2’nd Prize in The International Guitar Music Festival in Trzesacz, 2011 (chamber music);
2’nd Prize in The Polish National Guitar Competition - CEA in Warsaw, 2010;
3’th Prize in The II Polish National Guitar Competition „Guitar Viva” in Kielce, 2010 (chamber music);
1’st Prize in The VIII Lower Silesian Guitar Competition in Klodzko, 2006;
2’nd Prize in The I The Lubuskie Meetings Guitar in Zielona Góra, 2005; 2’nd Prize in The Lukas Pietrzak Intarnational Competition & Festival „Gitaromania”, 2005.

What is more, I participated in many music courses and workshops featuring Marcin Dylla, Tomasz Zawierucha, Máximo Diego Pujol, Marek Pasieczny, Robert Horna. I am also beneficient of scholarship of the mayor of Zagan for my artistic achievements in 2010-2011. In 2012 I have started studies in The Academy of Arts in Szczecin and currently I am in the Guitar Class under habilitated doctor Kornela Arwicz - Sienicka. At the same time, I am actively taking part in the musical events. I am playing solo and chamber music concerts at The Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and in Wroclaw, Szczecin, Zielona Gora or durning concerts organized by Association des Artistes Musiciens Polonais. Chamber music is my passion, so I co-create a percussion - guitar duo with Malgorzata Kepa, with whom I attended the IX International Guitar Course & Competition in Olsztyn, July 5-12 2014. From 2013 to 2014 I have gained a very important experience on the guitar school practices. Additionally, I am working with young adepts of guitar music. Apart from music I am interested in tennis.

I have a psychological and pedagogical training to teach children play on the guitar.
