Student Awards, Special Achievements & Testimonials
"I have known Mrs. Kinga Mitrowska since the fall of 2008 when I first started taking private vocal lessons with her. I was in my church choir for years before that and once I started getting solos I knew I wanted to start taking lessons. As a nine-year-old child I was intrigued by her approach to teaching music - it was fun, dynamic and I saw fast progress.
Mrs. Mitrowska has been my vocal teacher since the beginning of her vocal studio. She tailors to the specific need of each student; she chooses repertoire that suits our voice while staying open to our preferences of style and genre. Besides teaching us proper singing technique, she coaches our musicality and expression. All these aspects are important and she helps bring them all together. She also prepares us for auditions, RCM exams, festivals and concerts. Throughout all of this she remains positive and motivational.
Every year, Mrs. Mitrowska organizes concerts to provide her students with a platform to perform and learn from one another. One notable concert and fond memory was the “Magical Broadway Concert” in the May of 2017 where she directed, choreographed and performed along with us a two-act spectacle featuring famous music theatre numbers. It taught us the value of teamwork, stage etiquette and compassion.
Mrs. Mitrowska is a committed, hardworking and honest teacher and person. I have no hesitation recommending her to any potential student. It has been nothing but a pleasure being her student!"

Mrs. Kinga Mitrowska is a one of a kind vocal teacher. My son Jacob has been taking lessons for over 5 years now and we are extremely happy with the progress he has made under her direction and guidance. She does an incredible job in teaching her students how to sing and develop their voice but that is not all! They also learn how to how to act, dance and perform on stage with a great deal of confidence. She is the kind of teacher that truly cares about her students and really wants them to be successful.
During the preparation for the Broadway concerts, her passion for music and commitment to her students are evident. Jacob really enjoys his lessons with Mrs. Mitrowska and what is important he always has fun. It has been an incredible journey and we are looking forward to the next chapter.
In 2012 Jacob got this first prize in All Canadian Pageant Show. He was also admitted to the final casting in Les Miserables and then went successfully through the finals at the CNE Rising Star Competition. At the end of 2013 he was invited to record music videos by GrapeSEED, a company which specializes in teaching children English through singing, music and dance. The songs were recorded in Hollywood and music videos were produced in Japan in April and August 2014. Also in 2013 Jacob performed with great success at the concert Variete with a jazz band and during XXV Polish Festival at Chin picnic organized by Radio Polonia on the occasion of Canada Day. In 2014 Jacob had the honor to perform with an orchestra at the Gala Concert on the occasion of the Canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. Jacob was on TV on Tiny Talent Time show in October 2014.
In May 2015 Jacob played the part of Pharaoh/Brother in the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and performed in a Magical Broadway Concert organized by Kinga Mitrowska. Jacob have been chosen as a First Place Winner (Broadway/Musical Theatre Category) of the American Protégé International Vocal Competition 2015 and performed at Carnegie Hall in December 2015. He was the first place winner in category Art of Musical Theatre competition in the Great Composers Competition in 2016. Jacob was selected to attend the Premiere Program in July 2016 and won first place as the Top Performer in his age group competing with young performers from all over the world.
Jacob is also interested in acting including voice overs. Over the years he landed many voice over jobs, starred in Satisfaction which is a Canadian television sitcom and recently played a part in Shadowhunters which is an American television series. He also was casted for a small role in a movie Neverknock. Currently Jacob started records on the second season of an animated series.
I have been taking lessons with Kinga Mitrowska since I was very young. I can honestly say that without her expertise and training, I would not be the kind of singer I am today. She has allowed me to grow stronger as a singer and help me build confidence on stage and even off stage in my personal life. She’s helped me win countless of competitions and helped prepare me for the toughest performances I had ever had to do.
With her help, I was able to win First Place in the Eugene De Mazenod Christmas concert 3 years in a row. Second Place at a competition held by the Polish Women’s Confederation in Toronto. Third Place in the Great Composers Competition that was held for everyone worldwide. Amid all of these achievements and many more others, she has also provided me with numerous opportunities to perform with some of Mississauga’s talented musicians as well as guests from Poland.
What makes Kinga different and in my opinion the best vocal coach, is her motivation to take that extra step for her students and find ways to publicise her students talents and get them performing for live audiences because my vocal teachers out there do not provide this type of service.
I feel so fortunate to be taught my Mrs. Kinga Mitrowska. She is truly a remarkable teacher! I sang recreationally throughout my life, but when I started lessons with her a few years ago to get classically trained, my voice developed in ways I would have never imagined! In the short time studying with her I have won various competitions, sang in concerts in Canada and abroad, and developed a serious passion for classical singing.
Mrs. Kinga Mitrowska caters to your unique voice and gives you a well-rounded experience: she picks pieces and genres that best suit your voice and your interests, teaches you how to act and interpret the pieces, prepares you for concerts, competitions or exams, provides opportunities to appear on stage, and so much more. Classes with her are always enjoyable, inspiring, productive and valuable. She puts her heart into her teaching and is a kind and warm person who is such a pleasure to work with. It's an honour to be able to work with a highly educated and experienced professional musician.
