''Irena taught the piano to four of my children and made it exciting to learn. She is very clear in the word of her instruction but gentle and enthusiastic in her manner of delivery. My children ranged in ability from beginner to grade 8 when she came to us and all enjoyed her lessons and thrived under her guidance. We were lucky enough to get to see her perform in concert too! Her youth, experience and love of the instrument make her a super teacher.'' - Laura Newland, Mother
Based in London, Irena teaches a range of pupils from young children to adults. Having studied with Jenny Macmillan from an early age her teaching is inspired by the Suzuki method, alongside her experience as a concert pianist and a student at the Royal College of Music.
