Ildiko Skeldon - RCM Examiner

Richmond BC | V6Y2S3

About me

My musical career has spanned over 30 years. I knew from a very young age that I would make it my life's career. I find teaching and coaching to be extremely rewarding ...and the thousands of wonderful relationships I have made along this musical journey are so very special to me. I regard my Students as my "music family" ....they are a very important part of my life.
My teaching philosophy is to insure that each and every Student achieves his or hers own personal best. It is my job to bring that out of each student ...using a variety of different methods and incentives. Every Student ...young or old ...has some level of musical ability ...and I am thrilled to be able to develop and bring that out of them.
