Notes:

I have been gaining my experience for many years. During the pedagogical studies I completed 150 hours of an internship and practical training at primary and secondary music schools. I worked as a full time piano teacher at music school in Poland, at the same time teaching also privately. While studying at Rutgers University I also worked there as the Department Assistant, instructing Class Piano I and II as well as teaching individual students. At the same time, for two years, I was a personal assistant of my piano professor. After completing my degree in USA I worked as a vocal coach for three years at one of the biggest opera theaters in Poland. Coaching singers and choir members, helping them to prepare their roles, advising how to improve their pitch and pronunciation, correcting notes or phrasing errors, gave me lots of experience and training in the field of teaching in an effective way, even though it wasn’t precisely the piano instructing itself.
I have a very individualized approach to every student, planning lessons according to particular requirements, needs and abilities. I explain the material in a variety of ways, taking into consideration diverse learning styles, learning goals, different personalities or piano skills level.
My positive attitude, creativity and patience help me to build a good atmosphere and learning environment for my students. I always aim to make lessons fun, inspiring and enjoyable but at the same time I do demand the best from my pupils. Apart from a clearly technical aspect of playing the piano, in my way of teaching I attach great importance to develop the ear, strong sense of rhythm as well as to shape and develop my students’ imagination, musicality and artistic sensitivity. Crucial for me is also building in them the ability of self-reliant and effective work at home as well as the ability of concentrating and finding ways to manage a stage-fright during public performances.
