Langley BC | V3A 1N6
Over 40 years of piano and theory teaching plus adjudicating music festivals and conducting piano examinations in both classical and contemporary idioms.
On a personal level, many years of volunteering in my church music department and a number of years of enjoyment as a keyboardist with QuintEssential jazz band.
I specialize in ages 4 - 84. For some reason, I have an above-average percentage of boys in my studio. Perhaps growing up with 6 brothers has helped me to related to these boys.
My love for Classical music is strong, but a growing appreciation for others genres enables me to offer a variety of music experiences to my students.
Another area of specialty is Pedagogy. I really love to teach the art of piano teaching to others.
30 to 60 minute lessons once or twice per week. The option of accelerating progress by booking longer lessons or 2 lessons per week is recommended. Lessons are private, except for working with duets and ensembles and for theory studies. Class size is 3-6 students for Rudiments, Harmony, History or Pedagogy.
