  • Elzbieta has 8+ years of teaching experience. She has worked at music schools in Poland, Switzerland and the US. Between 2019 and 2022, she served as Adjunct Piano Professor at Utah State University in Logan, UT.  Elzbieta has taught students of all ages (4 – adult) at all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced.


Elzbieta’s main strength as a piano instructor is her in-depth experience both in teaching and performing.

A winner of numerous international piano competitions (e.g. 2021 South Korea, 2020 North Ireland, 2020 Malaysia), she has performed solo and with orchestras in many cities of her native Poland, as well as in Italy, Austria, Switzerland and USA. Her recitals have been featured on BBC Radio, Central New York’s Classic FM, Polish TV Culture and Polish Radio Koszalin. She has been described as “an unusual and interesting artist” (Adam Rozlach, Polish Radio 1 and TV Culture) and “a haunting Chopinist (…) [capable of] making something lovely out of simplicity” (Fanfare Magazine).

In July 2021, Centaur Records released her debut CD: Lights and shadows, which was greeted with high critical acclaim. American Records Guide called it “a wonderful CD debut”, Fanfare Magazine praised its “strong poetic streak” and Classical Sentinel exclaimed: “Now, that’s musicianship!”.

As a teacher, Elzbieta combines professionalism with her friendly demeanor and big doses of humor.

Next to teaching and performing, Elzbieta also writes articles on music and neuroaesthetics (neurological studies of aesthetics in art). In her free time, Elzbieta enjoys biking, hiking, baking and sampling delicious food in local restaurants.
