I started playing piano as I was 9. I loved to play, hated practising piano:) after some competitions, where I won the prizes – I started to like it, then to love it.
I love sport, fitnsess. I was the finalist on The One Year Running Challenge in Poland.
Get up at 5.30 am – sport training first! I also ski on winter.
I like to read about classic composers, some funny details about them, I speak about it, some anegdotes before I play on my shows. It makes a remarkable event, an exceptional, spiritual experience of music art.
I started on ships as replacement pianist because one pi ... anist got preagnant. After the first recital I got the highest marks from guests (over 103%) and got proposal for the next trips.
