“Right from the start,
Ms. Telega was able to get my daughter much more Interested in playing piano than she was before, and she would more proactively practice. "

“Right from the start, Ms. Telega was able to get my daughter much more interested in playing piano than she was before, and she would more proactively practice.  Being a performing artist herself, Ms. Telega was able to demonstrate to my daughter how to play different passages with a high degree of musicality and proficiency, which was inspiring to my daughter.  She also introduced to my daughter different practice methods that she had never learned before, which are very effective.  Together with teaching her about different musical styles and techniques, Ms. Telega, made my daughter’s jump from taking a Grade 5 exam, the last exam she took, to the current Grade 10 exam much easier than expected.”

“Ewa is a professional piano player who has had much experience playing as a performer, her love for music s evident when she plays.  Hearing her play excerpts of my own music helps me hear it better and eventually helps my performance.  Especially since she is from Poland and has grown up with music of Chopin all her life, her knowledge of his music is demonstrated when she teaches his pieces.  She imparts her enthusiasm and love of playing the piano onto me and any other students.  Rather than only work directly on the pieces in my repertoire, Ewa allows me to explore different pieces of music to broaden my horizon so that I do not get bored of my own pieces and that I get more of an understanding of music.  The lessons are customized to fit my skill level and at the same time just challenging enough to push me.   Whenever I become tired of a piece, Ewa finds an innovative way for me to practice it so that feels new, for example: play the piece with eyes closed.”

"Ewa allows me to explore different pieces of music to broaden my horizon so that I do not get bored of my own pieces and that I get more of an understanding of music."
"Her unique method of teaching helps me to be more creative and engaged in my work. Ewa is not only a good teacher; she is also a very inspiring person in my life."

“I have been studying piano with Ewa for the last four years and I have improved significantly. Ewa has always encouraged me to participate in master classes and music festivals and she was always there to support me. What I like is that Ewa gives me the freedom to select my own pieces to work on and challenge myself. She is very patient and always finds creative ways to explain a particular idea within the pieces I am working on and as a result I am able to apply that knowledge whenever I start a new piece. Her unique method of teaching helps me to be more creative and engaged in my work. Ewa is not only a good teacher; she is also a very inspiring person in my life.”

“Ewa has helped me to analyze music with a flexible, liberal approach. She prefers to leave room for other explanations, while teaching me that music does not have to be interpreted in one specific way. I learned from her that how we play certain parts of a piece are subject to change, but she has demonstrated consistency in her teaching methods. When I have open ended questions, she gives extraordinary explanations and always leaves me satisfied. Her wit allows for sufficient examples of imagery and metaphors, which I think are significant for learning pieces. Several times, I have felt that she tries to take her students out of their comfort zone to explore into their own means. Her main goal is to make her students become sophisticated performers who are not afraid to express themselves. What I especially admire about her teaching is that she clearly delivers her thoughts while also respecting the students’ ideas. She has often made note of how I feel about certain subjects, changes, or situations. Because she is well rounded, she keeps the lesson sessions interesting and entertaining. Moreover, she has a great sense of humour and will make an effort to connect to her students. Thus far, I have felt that she gives enough attention to me as she remembers all the details of my work. Outside of teaching music, she has told me about her experiences as a performer, tips on taking care of yourself as a musician. She is always considerate of my condition as a student and finds solutions to overcome any of my musical challenges. Ewa has always maintained a curious attitude towards me to help me become my best. She is able to discover ways to motivate her students and encourage them to try anything.

This year, I was encouraged by Ewa to participate in a few music festivals. As a result, I received bursaries, trophies, certificates and grades in first class honours with distinction. In the Chilliwack Lions Music Festival, I was runner up in senior piano, and in the Abbotsford Music Festival, I won first place in all of the classes that I participated in. She was very understanding of me when I was preparing to perform and compete. Moreover, when I decided to audition for music programs in a few major universities, Ewa gave constructive evaluation and gave me a great direction. As a result, I got accepted at a few universities with scholarships. This would not have been possible without her assistance. In the early lessons, Ewa had indicated that I did not have enough sense of beat, or rhythm. She consistently worked with me to help diminish my weakness, and I have improved greatly. Because tempo is one of the basic foundations of music, she suggested me the idea of feeling beat in my soul. It did not come easily, but now I naturally detect a pulse while I play pieces. Ewa has given me a lot of advices that I will use in my time at university and further future".

“I have been in Ewa Telega's piano class for almost four years and am filled with much gratitude. I have learned so much and I plan on continuing to practice piano in her studio. Thank you Ewa for your hard work and patience; without it I would not have participated in any of the events I have in the past three years.”

"I had accomplished more  with her as my teacher than any year previous".

"I have studied with Ms. Telega for about a year now to prepare for my level 8 RCM exam. Even though I had never been the most motivated of students, I had accomplished more with her as my teacher than any year previous. She always greeted me with positivity and made me feel like I was improving. I learned a great deal from each lesson and it was an absolute pleasure to have her as my teacher".                              

Amelia V. , 18 years old

"I have been taking piano lessons from Ms. Telega for 3 years and each year has been a wonderful experience with a great teacher. Many of the things I have learned have been made much more interesting by Ms. Telega’s constant ability to make sure I comprehend the things I have learned and making sure I am able to do it.  This has helped me become a better musician.

 

One of the greatest things about lessons with Ms. Telega is that while she is not too laid back (she is devoted to making me a better piano player), she is lax enough that learning with her is a pleasure not torture. 

 

I find her methods are perfect and I am sure she changes her method for each student to aid his or her style of learning. I like that she never gets full blown angry, she will however become disapproving when the situation requires it which is essential for any piano player in training. 

 

She is also very kind, always finding new ways to help her students become the better piano player that they want to be.

 

Thank you for the 3 years of wonderful experiences and thank you for helping me to become a piano player that enjoys playing the piano and looks forward to each lesson".

"Our seven year old son, Emil-Bastien, has been with Ms. Ewa less than one year. In this short time, our son has gone from not knowing anything about the piano or music, to learning how to play pieces on the piano, understanding technique and theory, as well as having an appreciation for the piano and music. Ms. Ewa has the patience and guidance that works well with our son's ability to learn music. We are very proud of our son's music accomplishments which is attributed to Ms. Ewa's teachings. Our son has just had his first Certificate of Merit test and he did an outstanding job! Thank you Ms. Ewa!!”

“Ewa took me in even though I was starting at a late age. She really worked with me diligently so I could get to a level in my playing that I'm really happy with. She still helps me grow and learn the music, not just the order of the notes and which keys to push. Not only have I seen my skills improve greatly, my family and friends have noticed my music is getting stronger. And it's all in thanks to Ewa!!!”

"Our family has been receiving instruction from Ms. Telega for over a year now, and we are delighted with the beautiful music filling the house! Most of us are beginners, and so the pieces are very simple, but Ms. Telega’s diligence in helping us do them really well allows us to enjoy even the early stages of learning piano. Her extensive experience as a concert pianist sets her apart; she not only teaches the technical aspects of playing, but how to really create beautiful music and any level.  As an adult beginner, I have enjoyed the process, even at the earliest stages. I would highly recommend her as a teacher".

"I'm amazed at how they developed such a love for playing so quickly".

“Hi Ewa, just a quick note to say how delighted we are that the kids are becoming budding little pianists under your wonderful care. Not having grown up in a musical family it is such a joy to walk into the house to hear it permeated by the music of little fingers tapping away! I hated piano lessons as a kid and assumed that my own kids would follow suit; so I'm amazed at how they developed such a love for playing so quickly. We even go on YouTube now and watch Victor Borges vignettes! Thank you for opening up this musical vista for our children, something we could never have done ourselves!"
