Piano lessons for people of all ages!

 

About My Studio

Welcome! I am a retired secondary school Music teacher. I have been teaching music to children, teens, and adults for many years. In my home studio, I gear your lessons to best suit you---your level of knowledge about music, your experience on piano, and your musical goals. The environment in my studio is friendly, patient, and positive! Sound like something you might enjoy?

 

Style of Instruction

It All Depends On Your Goals!

When you come in to meet me, we'll chat about your expectations and come up with a plan together. Here are some of the areas of focus I can provide to you, depending on what you hope to achieve.

Method Books

Perhaps the best way to progress in your knowledge and skills as a beginning piano player is through the use of a well-designed method book. These provide a natural, step-by-step process for learning. Basic information about music theory and how to read music notation is built into these books. I use several great method book series, because students are successful with them!

RCM Levels and Exams

Some students prefer to work their way through the Royal Conservatory of Music piano levels. The challenge, thoroughness, and musical integrity of this time-tested approach develops excellent skill and musicianship. I teach up to the Grade 8 RCM Piano Level. Some students begin with the method book approach, develop a passion for playing, and then decide to work on conservatory piano style lessons with me!

Fun Stuff!

In addition to using method books or RCM repertoire books, my students have the opportunity to work on music that they choose for themselves. They might bring in a favourite pop song or video game theme to learn. I understand that one of the greatest joys of learning to play piano is to eventually be able to play a piece that you've always loved. We keep some fun in our lessons!
