Cyprian Sekrecki has perfected his technique and music sensibility under several teachers. He has taken piano courses in Poland and abroad (open classes at the Piano Workshop in Moscow taught by Rem Uranin, Piano Workshop in Vienna and piano master classes taught by Prof. Luc De Gregorio). He has performed at the Frederic Chopin Museum in Żelazowa Wola and the P. Tchaikovsky Ukrainian National Academy of Music in Kiev. After the Poznań recital organised by the Tadeusz Szeligowski Association, one of the critics referred to him as a reincarnation of Van Cliburn (winner of the Peter Tchaikovsky International Music Competition in Moscow). He plays concerts in Ukraine, Germany, Russia and Austria, among others.
Cyprian himself admits that working with Prof. Kledzik and Doctor Żukowski played the most important role in his musical development.
