About this pro

Andrzej was born in Gdynia, Poland but in 1992 he and his family immigrated to the United States permanently. Andrzej grew up to his father's singing who was a former opera singer himself. Andrzej's first musical encounter with the piano was at the age of 12, proclaiming to his father that he will be "The next Paderewski." His musical talent was later discovered by his father, when observing his quickness and ease in learning and understanding of Chopin's music. At the age of 14, he began piano lessons with concert pianist Dwight Pelzter, but due to the teacher's health complications the lessons ended after only 9 months. After few months of self-teaching, Andrzej's piano tuner referred him to a renowned pianist and composer Zaven Khatchadourian, with whom he further continued his studies till his sudden death in 2003. Andrzej has dedicated his piano studies to Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin and composers of Romantic Era at the Juilliard School of Music.

    Andrzej is truly a one of a kind teacher. I am a professional musician with over 10 years experience teaching piano. I came to Andrzej to work on and improve my own playing and the experience has been truly inspiring. He really takes care to tailor the lessons exactly to your level and needs, from beginners all the way to highly advanced students. Highly recommended!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will need to assess the students current playing and learning abilties to help me understand where we will need to begin our studies and what method will work best for them.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have attained my Bachelor of Music from the Julliard School of Music in New York City.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher that excites and evoke a passion for the music in you. Without it, you'll easily lose sight of what brought you to the instrument in the first place.
