Information about Edyta
Edyta BMus (Hons) MPerf MMus MSc LRSM MISM
I have graduated with a Master of Music and a Master of Performance degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. As a scholar I`ve studied piano with prof. Paul Roberts and prof. Martin Roscoe, and harpsichord with prof. Carole Cerasi. I have completed my Bachelor Degree at the Royal College of Music in London, where I was under the tutelage of prof. Gordon Fergus Thompson for piano and prof. Jane Chapman for harpsichord.
I have a flexible and dynamic approach to teaching and will adapt each lesson to the individual needs of the student, with the emphasis on fun, creativity and progress.
For the last eleven years I have been working with children and teenagers. My teaching experience started with a very intensive course in the Early Years Teaching in 2010 that taught me the importance of giving children a good start in music. Between 2010 and 2012 I took part in Music for everyone project supported by Warsaw city. As a workshop leader I was in charge of workshops about Polish Music in non-musical schools, organising and leading concerts promoting Polish music, leading musical activities and workshops introducing children to the world of music.
Since 2012 I have been collaborating with RCM Sparks on projects and workshops that gave me the opportunity to work with children coming from different backgrounds and having various levels of experience in music. Working as a music assistant requires from me helping them to discover the beauty of music, create their own pieces and teach them piano. I have previously worked for organisations such as: the Early Learning Music Academy Elma, Richmond Music Trust and Funky Monkey Keyboard Classes.
For the last nine years I have been giving private piano and music theory lessons for children, teenagers and adults whilst also working for RCM Teaching Service at the Royal College of Music. Im happy to prepare my students for exams (Piano Grades 1-8, DipABRSM, Music Theory Grades 1-8, GCSE Music and A level Music).
Availability: I am available to teach on a flexible basis with availability during the day, evenings and weekends.
I teach at my studio near Earls Court tube station. I have got a great teaching environment with comfortable place for parents to sit in the lesson if they wish. Please contact me if you wish to arrange the first lesson.
