Feedback about Music Lessons with Bohdan Syroyid

“Bohdan is great to work with as he’s allowed me to strengthen both my formal compositional skills and still encourage freedom of expression and creativity. I’ve always written intuitively and feared learning formal composition would stifle this until I started to take lessons with Bohdan. His ability to bring techniques to life and ensure they are relevant to the music I’m working on is second to none. I would highly recommend Bohdan Syroyid to any creative musician looking to not only pass examinations but also to improve their creative music vocabulary. Thanks for your support Bohdan!” – Maddy Chassar-Hesketh about her composition lessons with Bohdan Syroyid.
