About Monika

Freelance Violinist and Opera Singer based in London, Performing at weddings, proposals, luxury events. Quality guaranteed!
Violinist
London

Originally hailing from Poland, I graduated from the Bronisław Rutkowski music school in Krakow, where I studied contemporary styles with Maciej Lulek and Baroque Violin under Anna Śliwa. Wishing to expand my vocal talents, in addition to my instrumental expertise, I also studied opera singing within Ewa Kowalczyk's class in Krakow. Coming to the United Kingdom I formed part of numerous orchestral and solo masterclasses, whilst participating in The Young Paganini of Krzyżowa and the European Music Workshops in Kołobrzeg.

Monika was an absolute dream to work with. She made our day all the more special. She communicated clearly with me from weeks before the wedding, eve going as far as to ensure her outfit choice was liked by me. On the day her performance was perfect and added just the romantic ambience we wanted. Every guest thoroughly enjoyed it as well and I can’t thank you enough, Monika. I would say to anyone looking for a violinist, Monika is amazing!

Monika was absolutely amazing and we could not fault her in anyway She was so thoughtful and punctual. She even messaged me a weeks before my wedding with pictures of her in different dresses and asked which one I would prefer her to wear which I thought was a lovely touch. She interacted with all our guests while waiting for the bride and even calmed the groom down with her lovely smile. she played beautifully as the bride walked the isle, and has made that song even more special for us She made our day so beautiful and q we can’t thank her enough, An absolutely stunning talent.

Monika has brought with her not only wonderful repertoire and violin music but lovely personality. The party would’ve been the same without her. I would highly recommend her for every occasion if you want it make it special.

What can I say... Monika played for us at my Mums 80th Birthday Bash at Hunton Park Hotel in Watford Jan 2020. A fabulously, Brilliant Violinist and a lovely young lady! Monika took time to ask about my Mum’s music preferences and incorporated this in the evening’s music. I would highly recommend Monika with no hesitation! 10/10

Hi Monika, I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your solo violin performance at the Watford and West Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce Networking event. It really brightened up my day. Your musical delivery and your passion are second to none. I will definitely be recommending you to all my friends, family and colleagues for any big social events they may have planned in the future.
