,, Teaching is my biggest passion. During my life I experienced many successes but also failures. I know that every young person needs a big support in their passion. 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, about the proper sound and style in the music, about working on certain pieces. But also – about planning the overall repertoire, talking about some personal things, planning the best competition strategy to develop as a concert pianist and a musician. Everyone is completely unique and special and can follow dreams – but also everyone’s need a good guide and help” Joanna Sochacka
