Julian Baus Pozniak has been working as an educator in a variety of contexts for over ten years, and has loved every new position and set of challenges that have come his way. His experiences and backgrounds span from educational positions with elementary- through high-school organizations, membership in professional performing ensembles as performer and conductor, and one-on-one experiences with students of all ages and skill levels, from young promising students to adult beginners. He recently earned his Master’s degree in composition at the New England Conservatory of Music, where he worked as an educator for two years, further developing his skills in teaching. With his grounding in multiple disciplines within music, he brings a wide variety of insights to every lesson, and works hard to connect his curriculum to his students interests and objectives.
Lessons are given in Piano, Voice, and Composition for either a half-hour or full hour. Lessons always place technique and musicianship as the core focus to the musical development of a student. This is underpinned by growth in the student’s ability to read music, their sight reading skills, their knowledge of fundamental music theory, and their facility with stylistic elements of the piece that they are working on.
Lessons are primarily conducted at the teacher’s studio in the South End of Boston, although lessons can also be given in the student’s home for an extra travel fee, depending on the student’s distance. Lessons can be scheduled regularly or on an intermittent basis as requested by the student. The complete list of studio policies can be found here.
Students who refer other students can benefit from the studio referral policy. For every referred student who takes two lessons, the referring student receives an hour’s worth of free lessons.
