Summary/Abstract: Witold Szalonek is one of the most distinctive personages in the second half of the 20th century. Apart from his composing activity, characterised by a radical sound language grounded in the ideas of the Second Avantgarde, he was known for being a pedagogue and populariser of music dedicated to students. The subject of the article is Witold Szalonek’s less known professional activity as a long-standing lecturer at the Music Academy in Katowice and Hochschule der Künste in Berlin, a choirmaster of amateur singing bands in his youth, and an indefatigable organiser of concerts, music festivals, as well as an author of many musical auditions for young people.
