Nevalea is a graduate of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music, where she obtained a Bachelors in Voice Performance and Advanced Certificate in Historical Voice Performance. She also holds an ARCT Diploma in Voice Performance [First Class Honours with Distinction] from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Growing up, Nevalea played the violin and piano from the tender age of 4 years old, and continues to perfect her craft through research of the latest pedagogical practices.
Nevalea Tkachuk is passionate about teaching music, and is RCM-certified in voice, violin, and piano. Her students have been awarded outstanding results in examinations through the Royal Conservatory of Music. She is currently accepting new students in voice, violin, piano, and theory. Nevalea will be teaching virtually through September and offering in-person lessons at her private studio in the GTA (Etobicoke).
Voice: Nevalea focuses on a holistic approach to vocal technique and is passionate about finding joy through singing. Offering lessons in virtually every vocal style, Nevalea can help you attain your singing goals! From developing your ear, vocal range, and rhythm, to performance skills, or completing a Royal Conservatory of Music exam, Nevalea is ready to work with you through every step to achieve your best results.
Violin: Learning the violin takes patience and commitment, so Nevalea strives to make this process fun and informative for her students! A focus on posture, clear tone, and learning to read music is at the forefront of each violin lesson. Nevalea is familiar with both Suzuki and the Royal Conservatory of Music methods; she uses both of these curriculums and likes to add in traditional fiddle music whenever she can.
Piano: Nevalea focuses on teaching beginner and intermediate piano students in her studio. She believes a firm foundation in one's musical education is essential to success down the road. Nevalea aims to help develop her students to become independent musicians who have a passion for their instrument. Nevalea focuses on technique, note-reading, and musicality within each lesson through interactive games and tools to approach learning.
Theory: Music theory is essential to understanding and applying every detail written on the score. A clear grasp of music theory will aid students in making extra progress in their at home studies. Nevalea adds theory into every lesson, but strongly suggests students have a separate theory class (or longer lesson split into two parts) during the week to cover all materials! Nevalea primarily uses the Royal Conservatory of Music's curriculum, but also adapts to each student's needs. For younger learners, Nevalea adds interactive games and worksheets to enhance their experience.
Nevalea looks forward to welcoming you to her studio!
