About me

I've been encompassed in music since I was 5, and haven't looked back since (that's alot of years!). I started my post-secondary education in the BMUS program, but decided to take a broader approach and graduated with a BA in Fine Arts, major in music, minor in English.

I've been teaching for 12+ years, and my philosophy is to lead by example.

I am a teacher who can relate to a student, and because of that find that the same method of teaching does not work for the same two people. This is because each student's goals vary based on their age and interest.

If you want to pursue RCM, I can do that. If you want to pursue some popular music - I can do that too. If you want a mixture of both - sure, let's have fun!

My students have achieved no less than honours, and two have pursued music or the fine arts in their post-secondary education.

Specialties

Royal Conservatory of Music
Technique and Pop (yes - both are related!)

Lesson details

Minimum 30 minute weekly booking is required. The lesson will include a review of the previous weeks homework, a look forward in the pieces we're working on, and often times there are discussions regarding goals.

There is a minimum 3 month trial period. It takes awhile for people to get used to each other. If we haven't gelled in 3 months, then we can re-evaluate.

Education and Accreditation

BA in Music, Major in Fine Arts (Music and Piano), minor in English.
My first two years of University was in the Bachelor of Music program, where my focus was Piano and Voice. Levels of study were ARCT in RCM.

I am the Chair of the VanDeca Choir Executive Board

Saturday and Sunday - I offer flex lessons where they may be on a Saturday OR Sunday, and offer the ability to change the dates around. These times are coveted by multi-children families who are involved in many weekly extra-curricular activities. 30 minute lessons that are missed are often caught up by extending future lessons to avoid scheduling nightmares.
