My father was an English Adult Ed. teacher his entire career, as well a musician (piano, organ and voice) and Gregorian Chant expert. My mother also worked for the school board (most notably the CSDM) in administration, but also acquired basic piano and music theory skills throughout her youth. Music and schooling has therefore always been a part of my life and fundamental to my being. I want my students to be intrigued by their instruments, by music, and the theory behind it.
I normally start each lesson with a revision of scales, using different bowings (single notes, 2-4 notes per bow, etc.), followed by a study. I regularly ask my students to name the notes on the staff before playing them (treble clef), or which note values are written, how to count them, etc. whether it be in their studies or pieces, as a regular revision of theory. I may also ask my students to sing the notes instead of playing them too, since solfège is an equally essential part of music. I'm normally very upbeat and bubbly, and try to make music and instrument learning as fun as possible with repetition.
My musical training began as a young child at home with my father on piano and voice. At the age of nine, I began private violin lessons with Rimma Finkelstein at the Italmelodie music school. I continued my music studies at Vanier College where I studied violin performance with Sylvie Allaire, piano with Jocelyne Tremblay and classical voice with Tamara Vickerd-Armstrong. I was also part of the Vanier College Choir (alto voice), as well as instrumental ensembles (on violin and viola). My Bachelor's of Music was obtained in 2014 from the University of Montréal in violin, where I studied with Vladimir Landsman. I was part of the baroque ensemble for three years on violin and viola as well as the university choir (alto voice).
