TMMS: Please introduce yourself.
KB: I am originally from Poland where I have finished a Primary Music School, specialization in classical piano. I graduated from the Academy of Music Katowice with the title of Master of jazz vocal performance. I have over 7 years of experience giving vocal lessons and I found this to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of my life as a musician.
Currently, I am working on material for new albums with Lit FM: a funky/soul band and jazz choir Alle Choir London.
I teach people of any age and level I also recently started working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I am communicative, patient, emphatic and I have a passion for helping my students reach their full potential.
TMMS: What is your favourite repertoire?
KB: That is always a very difficult question to answer for me. I love many different genres but If I have to choose one I would say Jazz.
Jazz has all the elements that other music has: It has melody; that’s the tune of the song. It has harmony, the notes that make the melody sound fuller. It has rhythm, which is the heartbeat of the song. But what sets jazz apart is this cool thing called improvisation.
TMMS: What are your dreams and plans in music?
KB: I just would like to make sure that I will always enjoy doing music no matter what happens in my life. I wish to keep performing as much as I can and spread/share the joy with my listeners and exchange the good vibes in my audience. In future, I would like to record my own solo album.
TMMS: What do you like about TMMS?
KB: I like everyone who works for TMMS school! All the teachers, as well as directors, are very kind people who are always ready to help and share their experience.
TMMS: As a teacher, could you give any advice to people who study / or who would like to learn singing?
KB: Never stop enjoying what you do!
Get out of your comfort zone!
Be open for new music adventures by trying different styles, learn how to improvise.
Always ask questions when you feel unsure about any matter!
TMMS: What do you like about the UK?
KB: I definitely like the multicultural society; since I moved to London I’ve learned a lot about different cultures and their music. The other good aspect of living in a big city is the numberless amount of good music events and venues.
TMMS: Could you share with us your free thoughts, which you think could be an interesting addition to the article?
KB: Anyone who would like to hear beautiful jazzy choir harmonies I recommend Alle Choir London facebook profile and the website, where you can find videos of our performances and information about upcoming concerts.
