About me

EXPERIENCE:

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.

Specialties

For Piano, I specialize in ages 4 - 94. 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.
I also teach Kindermusik for Newborns to age 5 in my North Vancouver studio.
