I was born in Krakow in 1984. But in 1988 my family decided to move to Germany. So I grew up in a little town called Öhringen in south Germany. There, I also received my first percussion lessons with Stefan Bihary at the Music School. He introduced me to classical percussion instruments as well as the drum-set and all kind of hand percussion instruments.
I had my first appearience in an orchestra with 11 years playing the glockenspiel part of George Gershwins "Rhapsody in Blue". I think it was then when I decided to become a professional musician.
As a teanager, searching for my own musicality, I decided it was time for change. Therefore, I began to work with Horst Rügner and Prof. Klaus Dreher who both had a major impact on my further personal and musical development. Working with them had expended my horizont radically.
In 2004, I finally started my studies at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart where I was taught by Prof. Klaus Dreher, Marta Klimasara, Jürgen Spitschka and Manfred Kniel. Horst Rügner remained as a dear friend and mentor.
After two very exiting years full of practicing, playing and teaching I developed a very strong passion for comtemporary classical music. I focused on this style continuing my studies at the State University of Music Nueremberg with Prof. Hermann Schwander, Roland Schmidt, Matthias Rosenbauer, Bil Molenhof and later Prof. Radek Szarek. I finished my studies in 2011 after two successful Diploma concerts in 2009 and 2010 and an additional year of postgraduate studies.
During and after my studies, I continiously worked as a percussion teacher, played in several orchestras and chamber ensambles and performed as a solo artist. Especially my work as a music teacher at the Wirtschaftschule Ansbach and my participation in the theatre group "Theater IMPULS" affected my professional life in the past couple of years.
After a very exiting four-years-stay in Trondheim, Norway, our family returned to Germany in 2018. I recently started to work again as a music teacher at the Gesamtschule Ebsdorfergrund while I am studying English (teachers degree) at the University of Marburg. I celebrated my artistic come back as a guest musician on the 2019 Christmas tour of the wonderful vocal ensemble "MiXtur".
I teach music classes in primary and secondary schools.
I work as percussion teacher and instructor in music schools or give private lessons.
I offer workshops for percussion ensembles, contemporary classical music or djembe, for children as well as adults.
I work as a freelance percussion player in orchestras, chamber ensembles, in theatre productions and as a soloist.
