About me

I realized in high school that I wanted music to be a major part of my life. I achieved my ARCT in Piano Performance and went on obtain my Bachelor of Music in Education. I now have 30 years of experience teaching piano and theory privately. This is what I love to do. My students range from 5 years to 65 years old. I believe anyone can learn, and everyone deserves quality music lessons with lots of positive reinforcement, regardless of whether they are studying classical, or popular music. I belong to the BCRMTA because I believe in the importance of staying current, educated and involved.
