I have 7+ years of teaching private tuition piano and voice lessons.
I have been a part of several bands ranging from concert (flute) and jazz (alto sax) band to a pop/folk band with a group of girlfriends (piano/voice/guitar). I have been a member of several choirs (primarily Lady Cove Women's Choir) and have performed in multiple Musical Theatre productions (in lead and chorus roles). I was also part of an improvisation ensemble during my Masters program.
I customize my lessons based on the interests of the student. I am experienced in teaching note reading and classical methodologies as well as contemporary chording and improvisation. I believe every individual is musical and I am very passionate about finding the music within each student. Piano teaching abilities: teaching from various instructional books, chording, self-accompaniment, improvisation, song writing, teaching the syllabus for the Royal Conservatory of Music (Canada), preparing students for examinations and music festivals. Voice teaching abilities: I have experience teaching from various classical silibi, musical theatre and pop books, as well as coaching singer-song-writers. I have experience in choreographing musical theatre numbers and helping individuals prepare for performances. Throughout my years of teaching, I have acquired many tools in my toolbox in order to teach vocal technique and production. I also have experience teaching adults who are 'new to singing' and can help them begin their musical journey.
I am very passionate about music education. Music has enhanced my own life tremendously and I love bringing that to students. I love providing students with a solid understanding of music and allowing the direction of their lessons to follow where the passion lies.
I received scholarships during my University days
Stephen Sondheim, Elton John, ABBA, Sara Bareilles, Billy Joel, Chopin, Brahms, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, The Beatles, Idina Menzel
I have an inspiring teaching space which is private.
