Personal Description:

I am a piano teacher that brings a variety of experience from my 12 years of teaching. I was born in Toronto, Canada and have also lived in British Columbia where I taught over 30 private piano students, aged 3 to adult. I was classically trained but my favourite genre of music is pop and rock, and I am a singer as well.

Tutoring Experience:

In addition to having run my own piano lesson business for 12 years in three different Canadian cities: Toronto, Victoria and Vancouver, I also gained my teaching experience through my work for six different music schools, including the reputable Victoria Conservatory of Music and also Merriam School of Music in Canada. I have taught at as high a level as Level 8 Royal Conservatory of Music (Canada) and have prepared a number of students for piano exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a structured one, helping my students move from one piano level to the next. However I am always open to student requests and I love to help students learn their favourite songs. I am very focused on music theory as well, making sure students have a true understanding of the music they are reading or playing. I like to teach written theory in most of my lessons and recommend students have a written theory book in addition to their songbook or lesson book.
I also like to teach creativity as part of my lessons by encouraging improvisation (making up your own songs) in every lesson. I try to also help develop the student’s ear in addition to my focus on learning to read music. I believe learning by ear is just as important a skill as reading music.
