By profession I am a harpsichordist and organist. I graduated in organ studies at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and completed my harpsichord studies at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater "Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy" in Leipzig. ​I have won first prize at two harpsichord competitions -  the 1st National Harpsichord Competition in Cracow and the 4th Academic Harpsichord Competition in Poznan, and received second prize at the National Harpsichord Competition "Wanda Landowska in memoriam" in Poznan and Sigismundus Lauxmin International Harpsichord Contest in Vilnius. Also have I broadcasted on Polish Radio as a soloist and am an experienced continuo player in a wide variety of repertoire. I work annually as an accompanist and tutor during the Summer Methodical Courses of Early Music in Warsaw.

I gained most of my experience in maintaining historical 
keyboards at the Hochschule in Leipzig under the mentoring of Prof. Nicholas Parle. There, as a harpsichord student as well as a trainee "curator of historical keyboard instruments" I took care of numerous instruments - harpsichords, virginals, chamber organs, clavichords and fortepianos - belonging to the Department of Early Music.

 

I have taken part in numerous renovations of instruments in Poland, Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom, performing many tasks such as: requilling, revoicing, restringing and regulating the harpsichord action. Additionally, I carry out work of a visual nature - principally the conscientious cleaning of instruments, particularly keyboards.

As a tuner and harpsichord technician I have worked at the International Festival of Early Music Bialystok (Poland), International Bach Competition in Leipzig (Germany), as well as during orchestral courses of the European Union Baroque Orchestra (Belgium, Romania). At these courses I also gave individual lessons on tuning and basic harpsichord maintenance. Currently, I am employed at the Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw both as a harpsichord teacher and as the technician, and lecturer conducting the course of harpsichord construction, tuning and maintenance. I continue to travel throughout Europe for my work
