Dur­ing my stud­ies at the Fry­deryk Chopin Acad­e­my of Music in War­saw, Depart­ment of Music Edu­ca­tion, Sec­tion of Rhyth­mics, I was award­ed with the schol­ar­ship of the Min­istry of Cul­ture and Art in the aca­d­e­m­ic years of 1986/1987 and 1987/88. In 1989 I was at a schol­ar­ship of the Min­istry of Cul­ture and Art in Pécs, Hun­gary. Dur­ing my stay at the Free School of Art I learned about the musi­cal and visu­al method by F. Lan­tos and M. Apagyi. I used the col­lect­ed mate­ri­als in my MA the­sis which was super­vised by Prof. Sza­bolcs Esztényi.

For a few years after grad­u­a­tion I had an oppor­tu­ni­ty to try out the men­tioned method in prac­tice. I con­duct­ed music and visu­al class­es and piano impro­vi­sa­tion class­es at a pri­ma­ry music school.

As ear­ly as when I still was a stu­dent I was invit­ed by Dean of the Depart­ment of Music Edu­ca­tion to coop­er­ate as a pianist/improviser at music and move­ment class­es. In the peri­od of 2000–2012 I accom­pa­nied to nation­al dance class­es at the Depart­ment of Vocal Stud­ies at the Fry­deryk Chopin Com­plex of State Music Schools in War­saw.

I hold the post of Senior Lec­tur­er at the Unit of Rhyth­mics and Piano Impro­vi­sa­tion at the Depart­ment of Choir Con­duct­ing, Music Edu­ca­tion, Church Music, Rhyth­mics and Dance, where I have run piano impro­vi­sa­tion class­es since 1991. I pass on my knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence to stu­dents spe­cial­iz­ing in Rhyth­mics and Choir Con­duct­ing. Since 1989 I have also taught piano impro­vi­sa­tion at the Depart­ment of Rhyth­mics at the Fry­deryk Chopin Com­plex of State Music.

In order to improve my qual­i­fi­ca­tions I par­tic­i­pate in cours­es in Poland and abroad. In 2013 I became an expert of the Cen­tre of Artis­tic Edu­ca­tion and I co-cre­at­ed the piano impro­vi­sa­tion cur­ricu­lum for sec­ondary music schools.
