Ewa is an experienced preschool music teacher and teaches early childhood music classes in Music for the Small and Tall, a program she runs at the Thatcher - Young Mansion, Center of the Arts.

At the USU Youth Conservatory Ewa has taught the following classes: Young Musicians, Brillante, Animato, Energico, Spirito, Con Moto, Con Fuoco and Scherzando. Ewa is also available for private lessons.
Ewa's teaching philosophy is based on the Orff Schulwerk approach to teaching music. Carl Orff (1895-1982) was a 20th-century German composer, best known for his cantata Carmina Burana (1937). In addition to his career as a composer, Orff developed an influential method of music education for children. In this approach, students make music with activities that are enjoyable and natural for them such us songs, movements, improvisation and music games. Students learn musical concepts and improve their concentration as well as coordination and sensitivity to rhythm and tone through singing, dancing, and playing percussion instruments.
