The most important to be a musician is to be an artist on stage. Becoming an artist you should be an actor that will recite your feelings to the audience. Making them feel your intentions with the music. To be free on the stage and to be able to successfully present your musical ideas effortlessly you must be in command of a well developed piano technique. During my classes I focus on both the musical aspect but also find ways in how you will successfully overcome technical issues.
I am a concert pianist, recording artist and scholar with more than 15 years of teaching experience. Before moving to Vancouver I held teaching positions at the Wroclaw Music Academy in Poland as well as Changsha Normal University in China. As a masterclass teacher I have been invited to, among other, the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, the Academy of Performing Arts in Hong Kong, University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, University of Victoria, Conservatory at Shanghai Normal University and National Taiwan Normal University, to name a few.
