About me

Joanna Borromeo has been a professional music teacher since 2003. She studied music at the University of Calgary and Humber College (Toronto, ON), making her a well-rounded musician in both classical and jazz performance.

Joanna is also a Juno Award nominated Soul/R&B artist and is active in the Calgary music scene. She is a composer, songwriter, improviser, and trained vocalist.

What makes teaching exciting for Joanna is helping students 'bridge the gap' between their technical skills and creativity. Her strong foundation in classical music has been instrumental to her artistic development as a soloist, band member, composer and improviser. Joanna is a well-rounded musician who produces expressive and moving musical performances that reflect her technical strength and rich understanding of music. As a music teacher, she does her best to impart the same spirit and quality of performance to her students. She focuses on building their fundamental music skills and knowledge through regimented technical training and artistic exploration rooted in music theory.
