By choice and passion, a dedicated pedagogue and teacher of children and young people eager to play wind instruments, especially in wind orchestras and chamber ensembles.

He is involved in various developmental and educational projects with these orchestras. These include performing at orchestral festivals (Germany, Czechia, Bulgaria, Montenegro), organizing outdoor concerts promoting children and youth education through playing instruments, holding annual workshops in Zawoja, Rynia, Głuchołazy, and others, where orchestras prepare their new repertoire and refine their instrumental skills. He is also a co-founder of the TIKEA Association (Society for Cultural, Educational, and Artistic Initiatives) in Leśnica, which supports the musical activity in the region. He leads orchestras and musical ensembles, promoting local culture both in the country and abroad. In Klaudiusz Lisoń’s orchestras, there are over 150 musicians in total. He has recorded several CDs and DVDs with his ensembles. His students have had the opportunity to participate in the projects of international youth orchestras, such as the European Spirit of Youth Orchestra, the European Union Youth Orchestra Campus, the Polish-German Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, the International Lutosławski Youth Orchestra, the Santander Orchestra – both as orchestra members and soloists. His students have received awards and honorable mentions in many wind instrument competitions and auditions in Poland. Graduates, on the other hand, have been students of artistic universities in Europe (Berlin, Essen, Stuttgart, Basel, Wrocław, Kraków, Bydgoszcz). Working with young musicians is his passion and joy, which is why it is hardly surprising that it absorbs him almost completely.
