About me

I received my ARCT piano teacher's diploma while growing up in Kelowna BC. After teaching for a few years there, I owned and operated a very successful teaching studio in Calgary, AB for 19 years. At that time I added voice and preschool Kindermusik classes to my teaching program. To me making music is a life skill. I look forward to helping my students achieve their goals. I will provide for my students the opportunity to learn as much as I can teach them, including the tools to help teach themselves in the amount of time they study with me.

Specialties

I specialize in helping my students to have FUN with music and really ENJOY it. I have much experience teaching many kinds of students including children, teenagers and adults.

Lesson details

MUSIC LESSONS TAKE PLACE IN THE STUDENT"S HOME< THE PLACE WHERE OPTIMUM LEARNING TAKES PLACE> I believe each individual student is unique and has their own specific needs and goals when it comes to their lessons. We discuss these goals and then I work out a program that is tailored to each student. I take a flexible, enthusiastic approach to each student.
