Licensed Teacher





Cowichan Valley Piano Studio






Music has been a lifelong passion for me. I studied classical piano for 10 years as a young person. I also studied the violin and cello and played in school orchestras. From a background of classical training, I ventured into other venues such as pop, jazz, gospel and church music. My enjoyment of music extends into singing with the City of Gardens Chorus (now Pacific Edge Chorus) in Victoria, B.C., an award winning 4 part a cappella women’s chorus.
Before discovering Simply Music I taught traditional piano for over 20 years, both privately and through music schools. I have also worked with a music therapist in a developmental centre for children with special needs. Currently I volunteer at an elder care home to bring personalized music into the lives of those struggling with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
I am delighted to be teaching Simply Music’s unique approach to playing piano. It is so rewarding to see my students excited about being able to play beautiful pieces in such a short period of time. Simply Music enables people of all ages to quickly gain a sense of their natural musicality. I am so grateful to have found Simply Music. It is a joy and privilege for me to impart my love of music to others through these programs.
