Not your typical piano lessons! I’m passionate about providing lessons that allow students to quickly and easily develop a relationship with the piano, right from the start. Allowing people to experience their musicality and developing skills and tools that allow them to share their music — I simply wouldn’t teach piano any other way!


Classically trained with the Royal Conservatory of Music, I have over 20 years of accompaniment experience, with soloists, choirs, and RAD ballet classes. As well as extensive teaching experience primarily in group settings. Simply Music has opened up my musical world with it’s innovative and effective play-based method, and it can do the same for you.


I teach all ages from my home-based studio in Ellison (Scotty Creek Neighbourhood). Lessons available via video conference for those who don’t have access to a local Simply Music teacher.
