Music & Culture
I have lived in many countries and different cultures. I was blessed with an opportunity of meeting fascinating people, experience their traditions and finding out what music means to them and their ways of living. It was then, when I was inspired by this musical cultures and decided to become the music ambassador and devote myself to introduce qualities of music to the western societies.
I've been educated in 3 different countries, reaching the highest music education level. I have learned different ways of approaching music, used different methods and routines. I developed the deep humbleness and appreciation for cultures and traditional music.
I began my education in Poland, during the time of communism. I started with the Classical Music and methods, which were formed and improved for generations.. I obtained proper technique and knowledge about every aspect of classical music.
In the USA, I started to studied Modern Music & Jazz. Naturally this kind of music style has a complete different approach. I had learned the skills improvisation, jazz harmony and piano voicing. Different practice routine and looking at the music.. It was also a period with lots of gigs and performances in witch I had a pleasure to performing with some well known artists; Larry Coriel and Eric Marienthal.
Back to Europe, in the Netherlands. It was a very interesting educational time period for me. I enjoyed playing with traditional and folk and latin bands from Africa & South America. Also I enrolled for brand new music major study NAIP ( New Audiences & Innovative Practice). During this period I was able to explore & experienced many exotic cultures. In 2014, I did a research and I wrote thesis about Ethnic & Folk music elements in compare with Jazz and Modern Music. I presented this work in the final Master presentation at the University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, The Netherlands on February, 2015.
My most influential music teacher: My Mother, Zygmunt Wybraniec, Joachim Pichura, Bill Dobbins, Marc van Roon and Jasper Soffers.
