About Pawel Kostyk
Get to know Pawel Kostyk
Hello! My name is Pawel Kostyk ( first name pronounced ‘Pavel’). I have been studying and playing the guitar now for 15 years and hold a bachelors degree from the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music in Jazz Studies. My main teaching philosophy focuses on strong technique, creating a precise sense of rhythm, a thorough understanding of music theory, and an emphasis on learning songs and improvisation. Essentially I strive to create a strong foundation for the musician to grow in any direction they desire be it a casual interest or professional aspirations.
Besides teaching I perform locally in various jazz groups in CT, and build and repair guitars. My hobbies and interests include cycling, reading, and experimenting by modifying my guitars.
