Kinga started violin at the age of 7 at the Stanislaw Moniuszki music middle school in Katowice, Poland. At the age of 9 she moved to the UK where she studied with Christa Porter through primary and secondary school, winning and placing on multiple occasions at the Southampton Music Festival and successfully auditioning for a scholarship from the Southampton Music Services. She then went to Peter Symonds College where she continued her studies with Anca Campanie and was later accepted on a scholarship to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, Wales.

At RWCMD, Kinga studied first with the head of department and head of historical performance Simon Jones, before joining the class of soloist and highly accomplished orchestral violinist Cerys Jones in the summer of 2017. Throughout her time at college, she received masterclasses from the renowned violin professor Itzhak Rashkovsky as well as accomplished soloists such as Rachel Podger and Madeline Mitchell. Kinga was also the second violinist of the Aureum String Quartet which received masterclasses from the Grammy Award winning Emerson Quartet and award winning Albion Quartet. One of the quartet’s most prized performances was for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in January 2018 at Cardiff Castle. Kinga also successfully auditioned for the Royal Welsh Strong Soloists where she played concerts alongside brilliant violinists such as Nicola Benedetti and Gary Levinson, and played under the baton of Valery Gergiev and Leonard Elschenbroich. In her final year of studies, Kinga led the Royal Welsh Opera Orchestra in a production of ‘The Gondoliers’.

Since graduating from RWCMD with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, Kinga has taken up the position of specialist violin tutor at the Southampton Arts Academy but has also performed recently with the Jersey Chamber Orchestra and soloist Anna Fedorova. She continues to work as a tutor and as a freelance musician.
