About me

I grew up in Kamloops B.C. and began taking formal music lessons when I was 6 years old however music was in my bones from the time I was an infant. It was not uncommon for my extended family to gather at my Grandparents home and have a jam session. Many of my family members including my father played the guitar, banjo, violin, harmonica, organ, accordion and piano. I could always be found plunking around on my Grandma's old upright piano. I entered many festivals after starting lessons and quickly found my self winning many awards and advancing rapidly through the levels. I began writing music at the age of 10 and by 12 was recruited by the Yamaha music foundation as a teacher. Because of my young age and the extensive training to be done in Ontario, my parents would not allow me to follow through with this endeavor until I was 15. At this time I began my teacher training for various Yamaha programs and taught hundreds of students of all ages. I continued teaching these programs when I moved to Abbotsford in August of 1988. Since then I have taught numerous other programs through out the years and am a certified RCM Elementary Piano Specialist Teacher, an Early Childhood Education Assistant and Music for Young Children Teacher. I believe there is no better program out there for children because of its child centered approach. Not only is it a well rounded music program, but it's fun AND it engages children through ALL their learning styles.
