RCM Certified
Dawn began her piano studies in Belleville with Kathleen Rennie. Dawn earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Queen's University, but music was always there for her. Living in Hamilton, and then in Goderich, she resumed her studies. This culminated in the honour of receiving the Cora B. Ahrens Pedagogy Award at the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association (ORMTA) Convention in Timmins in 2002. As a member of the Hanover-Walkerton Branch ORMTA, Dawn has managed the awards program since 1995. She assumed the role of Secretary in June 2016, and has been President of the Branch since May 2017. In July 2019, Dawn was honoured with a Ontario Contribution to Teaching Award from ORMTA.
