Slawomir Dobrzansk

Slawomir Dobrzanski, K-State professor of music, is the recipient of the 2021 Outstanding Teacher Award from the Kansas Music Teachers Association.

The association presents the award each year to members who are making contributions to our state organization and to the music profession at large. The student and peer-nominated Outstanding Teacher Award focuses on the teaching aspect of a member's role in his or her community.

The award ceremony took place during the Kansas Music Teachers Association State Conference Oct. 22-23 at Manhattan Christian College.

Dobrzanski's former piano students are currently pursuing artistic and academic careers all over the world, across North and South America, Africa, Europe and Asia. Many have become highly successful soloists and chamber musicians, often while serving simultaneously on the music faculties of colleges, music conservatories and community music schools.
