When teaching piano, it is my goal that the student becomes a lifelong musician. I want to teach so that the student has a well-round experience which a variety of repertoire, opportunities to sight read, play by ear, improvise and transpose. I love theory and promote opportunities for students to compose. It is important that students in my studio collaborate with other pianists, and other musicians through ensemble playing. Students at every level are encouraged to perform in low stress situations like seniors residences, or have an opportunity to compete and take exams. For adults this is optional. I am always trying to enrich my teaching so that the student has the best experience possible. Presently I am teaching online and choose to have a small studio. I enjoy students of all ages. I ask parents of younger students to be a daily part of the student's practice routine and be with the student at the lesson. Parent involvement, encouragement and interest is a partnership that I feel is very important.
