Gwen Greenway

RCM Certified
I love teaching music. I am starting my 40th year of teaching and am just as enthusiastic as I was the first year. I teach all levels and ages. Adults to pre-school. I like to teach 'Pop' and 'Jazz' music and help pupils learn to read music from charts. This gives them the freedom to perform for their friends and play modern music . I equally enjoy helping pupils achieve their Classical music goals.
