About me:

I have been teaching music for almost 20 years to students from around the world of different levels and ages. I gave my first piano lesson at the age of 16 under direction of my parents who are also professional pianists and teachers. My lessons are focused on getting fundamental skills first to be able to become an independent pianist as soon as possible, but also on nurturing the joy of playing the piano and having fun! :) It's important for me to know student's goal so I can create an individual plan to achieve it gradually and stay motivated. It makes me accomplished and happy when my students progress!

I think learning music is very important because it helps with memory, multitasking, relaxing, focusing, and many more.

I am also a winner of the international competitions and played hundreds of concerts in Europe and USA. Besides performing my passion is studying (I obtained 3 Masters degrees from Brussels, Paris and San Francisco) and obviously teaching (my experience is of almost 20 years now). I am an Active member of Music Teachers Association in California.

    Frequently asked questions

    When I start working with a new student I'd like to know their goal for learning the piano: is it to unwind from everyday life? Is it to perfom and prepare for a competition? Is it to learn something new? Then, I choose a piano method/songs/schedule for us so we can achieve that goal. I like to be flexible: if we need to change direction and take a new goal I am eager to help.

    I have 3 Master's Degree from international universtities. I learnt how to perfrom on the piano, compose, accompany and teach. I have been performing since I was 6 years old and started teaching when 16 by shadowing professors from music schools. Then, I opened my own piano studio in Belgium and after moving to USA- in the Bay Area. I taught msuic to around hundreds of students by now.

    I live in the Bay Area. If you take a lesson at your location you will pay basic price for a lesson and a transport fees depending of your location. I try to schedule students from same location on the same day so you don't have to pay so much for the transportation fees, and that's divided between all the pupils that day.

    If it's in my studio you will pay the basic lesson price plus partial fee for room rental. 

    If you take an online class you pay only for the basic lesson, no other fees.

    I encourage students to take some online and some in person lessons which becomes the best deal.

    All the payments are per period of 3 months and you are allowed 2 make up lessons during this time ( online or in person depending of teacher's availability). There is a 48-hour cancelation policy.

    I started teaching in Warsaw, Poland when I was 16. I was shadowing my father who is an international pianist. From that moment on I got my first students and that's how my teaching career started.

    I worked with students from 3, 5 years old up to 70 sth. Since I can teach any level I have been teaching kids, teenagers and adults. I like all. Being a musician for such a long time taught me patience and that is so far the best tool to intruct others.
