Recently (2023), a new American student sent me a message that surprised me. After four lessons by video, he wrote to me:
“I ended my local lessons. My interaction with your instruction has been far more productive and beneficial.”
Other recent opinions can be found in the numerous comments on my YouTube videos:
Below are some of the oldest, dating back to 2012 when I published the first version of this website.
SPAIN: Comment of a student by video / email
Watching myself [on the video] and then comparing with you is most useful. It helps me understand. I’ve been reading your lessons in your site and the more I read, the more I like them. I congratulate you for being accurate, clear and illustrative. It is an excellent pedagogical work. Your explanations are almost scientific. Really amazing! I’m enjoying very much learning this way. Thank you again.

I’m really happy! For the first time I’m feeling that I am making progress, thanks for your teaching. I tried to play the Chopin’s Etude and my God! That was really easier and sounded more relaxed too.
FRANCE: Comment of a “live”, traditional student
Aleksander Woronicki knows how to decompose every difficulty. He can observe and detect blocking points and systematically proposes a simple solution. In fact, Aleksander has always in reserve a multitude of small, simple exercises to smooth each problem. You must follow his advice, all the little “tricks” that he distils patiently allowing us to progress without realizing it.
POLAND: Debussy - Nocturne L.82 - e-mail from a student by video / email
“The use of rotating movements in the wrist really worked miracles! Why has no one ever spoken of this before? My left hand is getting along better with this accompaniment! I have always had problems with this kind of arpeggio and now I can play them successfully.”
FRANCE: E-mail from a student by video / email
“You are correct, my left hand is not perfectly symmetrical with the right. I have tried to correct this problem a bit and even though it is not perfect, I can feel the proper movement, but more on three notes than on two. So I continue to practice.”
