Gosia's lessons are always personalised. During the first lesson, she takes a lot of care in understanding her students and their needs, learning what their strengths and weaknesses are, and finding the best way of teaching and motivating them. She believes that each one of her student has something unique to offer, so all they need is somebody who can help them bring out the best in them and realise their full potential.
Piano first timers
Gosia expects her students to have a piano at home, as good results in piano playing require not only having the best teacher, but also regular, daily practise.

One should also expect to buy educational materials which may include grade books or other piano books, manuscript and a notebook.
