More Information



Everyone has the potential for creative  expression.  My goal is to help all my students become creative and  learn to express themselves through the refinement of playing  traditional piano very well, both technically and musically. My students  are also encouraged to explore and develop skills in a variety of newer  styles. 


My appoach as a piano and theory teacher is enthusiastic,  friendly and encouraging, while serious. I help my students to  understand, as well as to play, the music they are learning.  

Beginning students of all ages will enjoy  learning to play a wide variety of piano styles. They will be taught to  read music fluently, play with correct technique, understand music  theory, and develop their individual creativitiy and self-expression.   They will have frequent recital opportunities. 

If you want to continue learning just for  pleasure, I'm very happy to assist you with that goal. For those  interested in the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music exam process, as a piano and theory teacher I  have the expertise, experience and sheer love of music, to take you  through all levels including the A.R.C.T. diploma in both piano and  theoretical subjects.
