As a music teacher, I strive to provide a fun and creative musical environment to inspire learners of all ages to develop a lifelong love for music and creativity.
My services can be as creative and flexible as necessary to meet the needs of the student while developing practical musical skills, knowledge, routines, self-discipline and fostering creativity. Opportunities for performance are offered as an important tool to showcase student's achievements.
My private music studio has included students from age 4 to adult over the past 16 years. I've worked one on one with beginner to intermediate music students, tutored instrumentalists with school band material and also developed unique weekly music sessions for young learners or students with special needs.
My personal music experience includes bachelor degrees in Music Education and Education (from Canada), membership in orchestras, jazz ensembles and choirs, playing trumpet in a touring band, teaching early childhood music, teaching private lessons (piano, trumpet) and classroom teaching students with special needs.
Student development benefits greatly from learning a new musical language. Also, with structured support, practicing their new skills at home helps students develop useful and transferable skills in self-discipline and self-reliance, creating independent learners who take pride in their accomplishments. I love being a part of this process, watching a student's love for music grow.
Lessons take place at my home in Heathmont, on an acoustic piano. Students are welcome to work on an acoustic piano or electric piano at home as long as it has weighted keys.
