While I have a passion for music my greatest passion lies in music education. What good is all this education and experience I’ve gained over the years if I can’t share it with others? Music is the universal language and it can be found all over the world in one form or another whether that be in nature, a bustling street corner or in a concert hall- music is everywhere. Having a music education is a very important and an integral part of a child's development. One of the most fulfilling aspects of being a music teacher is having the ability to nourish their development and watch the student grow.
Every student has different goals and reasons for seeking a music education. This is the reason I ensure great communication between myself, the student, and the parents and custom each lesson towards the students goals. During our first lesson we will discuss and write down short and long term goals creating a plan to work towards. As a music educator I make it my goal to ensure a comfortable, light-hearted teaching environment which is custom-tailored to fit the needs of the student.
I started my formal education in music from the young age of 4. As a child and into my teenage years I progressed on the piano and in voice. I took piano lessons from a sought after festival adjudicator and RCM examiner from Southern Alberta and won many awards under her mentorship. In piano I have completed all theory requirements for the ARCT and was in the process of preparing the practical portion of my ARCT when I developed tendinitis in both my wrists, leaving me unable to continue. During this time I discovered my love for Musical Theatre and started working with mentors in the industry on different musicals/projects as a musician in the pit orchestras and/or leading vocal ensemble rehearsals as assistant vocal director. I also have been working towards an undergrad in fine arts and have future goals of completing my Masters in Conducting.
Music was all around my household growing up. My mom taught piano and my grandfather played an array of different instruments. I started competing at age 6 and competed in multiple festivals every year until I turned 20. I had a very good festival career going to provincials and winning many scholarships and first places both in piano and voice. With my extensive musical theatre background I have lots of experience teaching actors to sing or singers to play piano for themselves. I also have certification in the Kelly Kirby Kindergarten teaching method which is for early-learners age 3-6 and for students with special needs. It forms a well thought-out extensive foundation of music education by using story, movement, and games to learn important musical concepts. Completion of the program creates an excellent base for the student to continue on piano or to pick up a new instrument!
