Xin says, "I have been having cello lessons, both online and in person, with Jakub since a year and a half ago as a beginner. I felt lucky that I have met such a talented musician and tutor.
Jakub is precise, dedicated, patient and skillful. His teaching contains many facets of playing cello, including the fundamental, the technical and the musical. He is good at explaining things in an imaginative way and knows how to select the right pieces to challenge the learner and help the student develop skills. In addition to giving feedback and teaching new techniques during the lessons, he always shows me how to practise effectively by myself.
I have contacted and met other cello tutors at the beginning. Jakub is the one who really thinks from the student’s perspective and understands the pace of an adult learner. The lessons I had are dense and informative. (He is experienced in teaching both children and adults and I am sure he is able to tailor the lesson to each individual).
Jakub is always positive and encouraging. I enjoyed every lesson we had together and look forward to the coming ones!
