Jo-Anne Westover

I studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and went on to complete my ARCT. I credit my piano teachers Laurie Evan Fraser, Earle Moss, Leslie Kinton and Joseph Macerollo for their contribution to my learning and success. My goal is to provide as many learning opportunities for my students as possible. Mock exams, master classes, trips to the opera, and various festival and performance opportunities are just some of the ways that I have given students confidence in themselves and their abilities. Many students under my care have gone on to win medals and scholarships for their achievements. Every year for the past 10 years, I have been honoured to have my senior students chosen to compete at the Provincial Level, in which many of these students have won awards or received Honourable Mention. In 2018, I received the Contribution to Teaching Award from the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association (ORMTA). With a little encouragement and guidance, students rise above and exceed what they think is possible. MY hope is that the lessons learned from my teaching will help students achieve great things in whatever field they choose.
