Information About Natalia - Leeds teacher - (24 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Natalia:
I was born and grew up in Poland where I began learning at Music School at the age of 5. In 2009 I graduated, having obtained a professional qualification in piano performance, music theory and analysis.
Qualified piano teacher with 22 years of experience in playing and 7 years of tutoring in London - working individuals, as well as school groups. I have worked with tutees representing all levels of advancement, successfully preparing for all ABRSM grades as well as creating less formally structured learning plans.
My approach is tutoring is tailored to meet everyone’s individual needs which will vary, depending on experience, the aim (exams, revisions, auditions, or learning as a hobby) and personal preference for the style of teaching (number of times a week). There will be an assessment meeting during which I will be able to determine the most suitable approach and define goals. These will help me prepare the most suitable learning plan as well as a repertoire that will be best develop the necessary skills. At the end of each lesson I will provide a thorough feedback for the tutee to refer back to and use as a reminder of the key focus areas, required preparation for the next week, as well as a record of progress made.
I believe that first and foremost music needs to be enjoyed and derived pleasure from - and because of this I strongly encourage my students to participate in the process of selecting pieces. I create warm, friendly atmosphere, attach great importance to building strong rapport with tutees while retaining the balance between focused, intense learning the details and more relaxed playing – these combined make the whole process far more enjoyable and faster.

I have learned more in the short time we have had together than I had imagined I would and I am continuing to progress even more, week after week. The lessons are fun, productive and very relaxed and I thoroughly look forward to them each week. The challenges she sets based on my current level of playing are challenging but very achievable. The work load that she sets is not overwhelming and we have found works best on a week by week basis.
I am thankful of what she has taught me so far and I cannot recommend her enough!
I am an adult learner with no experience of music , and 1 yr on am playing things I never dreamed of. The lessons are excellent , she is very focused and considerate of what music challenges you can attempt. In addition the lessons are thoroughly enjoyable. Each piece is an incremental challenge , moving forward , difficult , but achievable goals
I am so grateful to Natalia for opening up the piano to me : I have no hesitation in giving Natalia a reference, with the highest possible recommendation - let her teach you the piano , and you will not be disappointed .
My 8 year old is very happy. Thank you!
