In 2013 she continued studies in Music High School in Poznan (Poznanska Ogolnoksztalcaca Szkola Muzyczna II st. im. M. Karlowicza) with Mikolaj Zgolka. After graduating she got accepted for further studies in Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. Since September 2016 she has been studying with Ruth Crouch and working with many different professors in the Conservatoire. During her time in Wloclawek, Poland, Daria performed in numerous concerts. Her most significant performances were within the series of concerts "Master and student" ("Mistrz I Uczen", 2011) where she played J.S. Bach Violin Concerto in A Minor with string ensemble. Daria also gave a recital in the series of concerts “Graduates” (“Graja absolwenci”, 2016). She has also often attended Zenon Brzewski International Music Courses in Lancut. There she worked with Fulvio Leofreddi, Danuta Glowacka-Pitet, Michal Grabarczyk and Monika Urbaniak-Lisik. Daria also received chamber music coaching from Dariusz Smolarski and Anna Gutowska. Lately she had the opportunity to look closer at great performers in work such as Nicola Benedetti, Alina Ibragimova, Pedro De Alcantara and also played in masterclasses with Joseph Swensen. Outside of conservatoire classes, Daria loves to engage in various charity concerts. She played in ‘A Celebration Concert for Hester Dickson’ in Edinburgh, supported ‘Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity’ and other fundraising concerts in her hometown.
