RCM Certified
After teaching piano and Music For Young Children for many years I became certified as an RCM Elementary Specialist – Piano Designation, in 2016. I enjoy working with the Elementary levels and following students’ progress through the years. I’m very pleased with the results of my students, especially when I see the looks of pride on parents and children at our year end recitals. My experience as a Registered Nurse has been an asset with parents and children as we work together to make learning music enjoyable. I offer both on-line “Zoom” lessons and in-person classes. Students must be fully vaccinated for the in-person classes.
