As far back as I can remember I've always played the piano, which I in turn have turned into my career. Throughout the years I have taught different children/adults and started to realize how much I really do enjoy teaching piano, but more so, I enjoyed the reward of seeing their eyes light up after spending time explaining something to them. Learning an instrument is like learning a whole new way of communication, a way to express yourself that you and others can enjoy listening to and watching, a way to be fierce and sensitive. To be a musician, is to be a person not afraid of showing your most inward feelings when playing.
Now married and living in Vernon I am continuing my teaching career and looking for more students.

Play that song
So, you have heard that song on the radio, or have a song you want to learn, but just don't know where to start, I can teach you how to pick out the melody of any song, no matter how hard, and add the accompaniment of the left hand, so you can do it on your own later. Also will teach you how to write out music should you want to learn!
