Pianist, Docent, Composer
The only barier to music is the disbelieve of making it.
From the very early days I was exposed to the music thanks to my mother, who was natural, self taught musician. She wanted to make sure that I will receive a proper music education, so she wrote me in to the Music school in my hometown Koszalin, Poland. This was probably the most influential music period in my life. Hours of music education on instrumets, Intense music programs, digging into music harmony, analyses and other forms of music offered by the East European music system, made a great base ground for me in the future.
After graduating form Liceum of Music, I continued further with my music education. I was accepted to the one of the most prestigious schools in the world, Music Academy im K. Szymanowski in Katowice, Poland. There I begun to recognise how deep the music is and became fascinated about Jazz & Modern music. I decided to moved to the United States of America, whereI continued my music education. During this period I was very fortunate to perform with such a great artists as Larry Coriel, Eric Marienthal.
After 7 years in the USA, I decided to moved back to Europe to study different aspects of music. I moved to the Netherlands, where I continue my education in Prinse Klaus Conservatoire and in University of Applied Sciences in Groningen. In 2015 I graduated and received the Master of Music degree .
My most influential music teacher: My mother, Zygmunt Wybraniec, Joachim Pichura, Bill Dobbins, Marc van Roon and Jasper Soffers.
I must say, I was quite fortunate to receive all this different education programs from different school systems in this countries. It all became very beneficial for me. I received proper level of the instrument technique and sound from the old East European education methods. Then I was introduced to a different approach to music with the American jazz harmony and laid back improvisation. All that mixed with the Dutch efficiency and focused on the business part of the music industry. New audience and innovative ways of practice. All that of course wouldn't matter that much without the passion and inspiration for the music from all the lands and cultures I was blessed to live in and experience.
