About me

Patricia Shanks has taught piano, voice and classroom music for more than 35 years.

Patricia is a member of a number of professional music organizations. Her students successfully pass exams (including MTAC Certificate of Merit, The Carnegie Hall/Royal Conservatory Achievement Program, and ABRSM), participate in recitals and other performances, or simply play music for their own enjoyment.

Philosophy of teaching piano: If it isn't a little bit difficult, you aren't learning anything. If it isn't a little bit fun, you aren't enjoying learning all of that difficult stuff!
