This is how 3 referees rated Konstancija:
Educated at the Eduardas Balsys Gymnasium of Arts in Klaipeda, Lithuania from the age of five, I quickly developed my musical talent, performing at a variety of festivals and competitions.
Upon relocating to London, I was accepted to the Royal College of Music Junior Department (RCM) where I continued my music career as a violist.
During my studying at the Royal College of Music I had an opportunity to perform at the Junior Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
In 2014 I was offered a scholarship at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. I have been developing my music skills by attending various masterclasses including the Carducci quartet and with Andriy Viytovych.
During my music training years, I have been coached by professors Sarah-Jane Bradley, Michal Kaznowski and my current teacher Rivka Golani.
I am a determined and self-motivated individual who enjoys working in a pressurised environment and taking part in challenges. I am a good listener and enjoy learning and applying new skills. I am happy to undertake tasks independently but also enjoy working as part of a team. Attributes such as patience, trust and determination have been invaluable to me when working in a team. I enjoy good humour and I am a willing learner who illustrates an enthusiastic approach to my work.
My music degree requires me to participate in many team working activities including orchestras and chamber groups which have enhanced my team working skills even further. Since I am always participating at the orchestra or chamber groups, I have to make sure I am always aware of what is happening around me.
I love what I do with passion. There is no better feeling than helping others to learn more about music and educating them further on the instrument and music world itself.
During my years of education I have attended Queens Park Community School where I had opportunities to help school's orchestra and strings section. This has given me experience of working with larger pupil groups. I learned how to lead ensembles and small orchestra sections. I would also help individual students who were struggling with their parts.
While studying at my music conservatoire I have been teaching privately viola and violin students including all levels of playing and all age groups. Majority of my students have been working towards ARBSM examinations which helps them to carry on with their progress and keeps them motivated long term.
I tend to manage my time well therefore I make the use of the lesson very wisely and make sure we cover a lot.
I am also currently teaching violin and viola at Enfield Saturday Music Centre and in primary schools around Enfield borough.
I have completed the following training:
• Child protection training
• Music and pupils with additional needs (SEND)
DBS check upon request.
While teaching pupils, I strongly believe you have to be very open minded as every student is different therefore their approach to understanding music and instrumental playing might be different. I use many different technique methods, motivation games and repertoire while considering the pupils needs. When teaching I always start with basics to make sure my students has strong foundation before they start learning any repertoire. I believe having strong foundations is a key to learning and improving in general. With younger students, I tend to use more games including flash cards and stickers system which keeps them stay motivated and creates fun learning environment. As the pupils get more advanced we then pick up more studies, cover various repertoire and set aims and objectives to keep them on track with their goals. I tend to get my pupils learn more different pieces throughout studying as it is not only important to cover different styles of playing, but also, this helps to improve their sight reading skills. When teaching I believe that scales, study and two contrasting pieces is an essential.
