I have had the pleasure of teaching Simply Music to students of all ages for more than ten years. In my studio, I like to create a warm atmosphere where students feel accepted, yet motivated and challenged to do their best. Students in my studio have enjoyed success in playing classical, accompaniment, blues, and jazz. After one year of immersion in playing songs from different genres, students learn to read music with ease.
Prior to teaching Simply Music, I taught Grades 3-6, including Music. In addition I was an instructor of English as a Second Language to adults, so I have had experience teaching students of all ages.
I studied Piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music for eight years, but have more recently enjoyed teaching and playing the piano since I discovered the benefits of Simply Music. It is a lot of fun to see the fantastic results that students enjoy, including the flexibility to compose and improvise.
