,,Teaching is my biggest passion. During my life I experienced many successes but also failures as a student and pianist. That is why, I know that every young person needs a big support in their passion and very strong help from pedagogue. Not only good teaching as learning the right position to the instrument, gaining good technical skills, avoiding any pain or problems with hands and body, learning about pieces structure and about the proper sound or style in the music. But also – planning the overall repertoire, talking about some personal issues, planning the best competition strategy to develop as a concert pianist and a musician. Everyone is completely unique and special, but also everyone needs a good guidance and help” Joanna Sochacka
