About Me

Born in Poland in 1968 and started music lessons at the age of 6, M.Lilian Szlaga was a child prodigy. She enjoyed the process of learning as much as her later public performing. The biggest influence on her musical
growth was music of Frederic Chopin. Now she tries to convey her love for music and passion for learning into her students.
Her philosophy is :- not everyone can become a concert pianist but all can be educated listeners and concert goers. She is a piano coach for very advanced performing students as well as for solitary enjoyment fans.
