WHAT STUDENTS SAY
Jakub is an extraordinary teacher and it is so clear that he loves his work. Our son has been studying with him for almost six years and each week Jakub is passionate, patient, and excited about the music and teaching. He is an excellent composer and pianist and brings this passion to his students and we often hear him saying "Yes, yes!" through the door in excitement. This love for music is infectious and our son leaves each lesson in a great mood feeling happy and accomplished. Thank you Jakub!
Jakub has been highly instrumental in teaching both my young daughters how to play piano. My older one in particular has become very passionate about playing ever since he became her teacher. She practices constantly on her own without prompting and can now do some complex pieces because of his teaching. He is truly a professional musician and clearly loves his craft and loves teaching it. He has been extremely flexible especially during Covid times by teaching remotely but still diligently. I am so thankful we found him and for the love of music he has instilled in my children. Their dad is even now taking lessons from him!
Jakub is an incredibly talented composer and pianist. He gave piano lessons to me and my daughters and I could not recommend him enough! He is a true artist, he lives and breathes music. If you're looking for a piano teacher, or a composer, look no further! Jakub is excellent.
Jakub is an extremely talented and very well educated composer and musician. His teaching style is equally impressive. He is skilled at helping you with technique and sight reading, aided by explaining the purpose and intention of a composer's music, and he selects pieces that well suit your preferences as well as skill level. I couldn't be happier with this teacher - his knowledge alone is worth his time, and in only 1 month (and no practicing) my sight reading is noticeably better.
Jakub has been teaching my son Luka piano for many years. His expertise and love of music, along with patience and creative ways of engaging students, have made a big difference. He describes sounds, comes up with stories to envision music pieces, invokes composers to show different sounds and styles as he develops my sons understanding of music and piano playing. His thought out and well rounded teaching over the years gives my son a great foundation to continue improving and enjoying music for life.
