About me

I am a kind,gentle,patient and creative teacher. I am skilled and passionate about teaching music. Over the years I have found creative approaches to teaching students based on individual diagnostic need and because of a vast amount of skills, knowledge and experience I have found teaching music to be inspirational, creative and very rewarding both for the student and teacher.

Specialties

I have skilled training to teach keyboard to the younger student ages 3 and up as I have taught programs such as Music For Young Children and The Back to Basics Piano Program and various other piano methods.I have had great success with children and students of all ages that demonstrate that they are happy to play the piano and come to lessons. I also have 3 years of Pedogical training of the RCM graded books and various piano method books. Also I have skills in small group class teaching of how to perform infront of others without fear, learning to sight read,ear training,singing and music composition through the use of fun creative music educational games and approaches.
