I am a concert pianist and a very motivated piano teacher based in London. Recently I graduated with highest distinction from my Master course in piano performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with Ronan O`Hora. At the moment I am doing a Fellowship programme at the same university. I started playing piano at the age of six and before coming to London I received a serious musical education in Warsaw. ( Frederic Chopin State School of Music )
I have won prizes in many piano competitions:
2015 - Fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and School in Colorado
2014 - 2nd Prize of the Christopher Duke Piano Recital Competition in London
2013 - 3rd Prize of the Brant International Piano Competition in Birmingham

2007 - 3rd Prize of the XVth Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition for children and Youth in Szafarnia ( Poland )
I also participated in music festivals and piano courses worldwide:

Moreover I participated in many piano masterclasses which gave me an opportunity to work with great pianists including: Richard Goode, Angela Hewitt, Robert Levin, Janina Fialkowska, Emile Naumoff, Cristina Ortiz, Bruce Brubaker, Jeremy Denk, Jonathan Biss, Anne Queffélec
I had performed as a soloist and chamber musician at many prestigious venues in UK including Barbican Hall, Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room and Milton Court Concert Hall, as well as in Poland, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Japan and United States.
After gathering a lot of experience from those musical events, the most enjoyable for me is sharing all my musical experience and knowledge with other people.
I am comfortable with teaching students at all age and levels. I taught piano and music theory for 8 years in UK and before in Poland.
I can prepare students for ABRSM examinations, music competitions and concerts as well as teach students who are music enthusiasts or are just starting the musical journey.
I believe that music has a great power to enrich our lives and everyone deserves it.
Everyone is different and I adjust my approach to the need of my students. In the end it is always about enjoyment and inspiration which comes from music.
I teach classical piano and music theory at all levels. During piano lessons I work with a student on development of piano technique and musicianship as well as on his/her aural skills, harmony, sight-reading, analysis and elements of improvisation. Always depending on needs and wish of the student.
