Tatiana Stachak

Guitarist, composer and educator. Tatiana Stachak graduated from the Wrocław Academy of Music, in the class of Prof. Piotr Zaleski. She has won national and international guitar competitions, including 1st place at the National Guitar Competition in Konin (Poland, 1990), 2nd place at the International Guitar Competition in Frosinone (Italy, 1991) and 2nd place at the International Guitar Competition in Ingenio (Spain, 1995). In the years 1998-2005 she wrote articles on guitar literature and teaching methodology for the music magazine Świat Gitary.

Whilst still a student at the Academy of Music, she directed her interest toward the education of young children. Her experience in working with children has led to the publication of numerous educational titles for beginner and intermediate guitarists. EUTERPE has published Stachak’s series of duets Uczeń i Nauczyciel [Pupil and Teacher] (vol. 1-3), her collection of miniatures Zaproszenie do walca [Invitation to the Waltz], Znam i gram [I Play What I Know], Album z wariacjami [Album with Variations], two collections of carols - Pierwsza gwiazdka z gitarą [The Christmas Eve Star with the Guitar] and W dzień Bożego Narodzenia [In the Day of Christmas] - and, with Mirosław Drożdżowski, the publication Solo & Duo. Her textbooks Gitara pierwsza klasa [First Class Guitar] and Gitara ekstra klasa [Extra Class Guitar] have become a permanent fixture in the canon of music education in Poland, whilst gaining ever more recognition abroad. Stachak is also co-author of the series of textbooks for ear and rhythm training Nasza muzyka [Our Music] (vol. 1-6) and Nowy solfeż [New Solfeggio], prepared together with Ilona Tomera-Chmiel and Lidia Florek. In 2021 she published a textbook for ear training, Muzyczna pracownia 1 [Music Workshop 1], intended for students of music schools of the first degree.

She is currently actively engaged in educational activities; giving lectures and workshops in music schools, guitar courses and at festivals, and promoting her methods of teaching. Since 2021 she has been working with the Academy of Music in Cracow, where she teaches guitar teaching methodology.
