About me

Fredrick Pritchard is a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto, Western Ontario Conservatory of Music, and the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, England. Well-experienced as a classical soloist and also as a nightclub entertainer, Mr. Pritchard is also a composer and author of a Piano Beginners' Series. He is experienced as a Conservatory Examiner, Music Festival Adjudicator, and Lecturer.

Meanwhile, for almost 40 years teaching has been his chief professional focus. Offering lessons to all ages and at levels, Mr. Pritchard has trained numerous professionals...performers, composers and teachers. Visit his website at http://pianostudioone.ca and hear Mr. Pritchard and his students!

Offering traditional instruction leading to Conservatory Examinations, Mr. Pritchard likes to emphasize the creative aspects of music-making, such as improvisation and composition. Styles include classical, jazz, blues, ragtime, etc.

He's often been described as an innovative and inspiring friend, mentor, and teacher:
"My approach to teaching stems from my desire to provide every student with the skills necessary to enjoy a lifetime of music-making. When students enjoy the lesson, as well as the pieces they are learning, they want to spend more time at the piano. They spend more time at the piano, and usually continue their studies to advanced levels. My love of music is infectious!"
