Music is a part of every person, and it is part of humanity as a whole. Music can create an instant mood, bring memories to the surface, and provide exercise for mind and body. Private lessons are such a great opportunity to provide a completely individualized experience for each person; we can spend time with music that will be enjoyable, interesting and still fulfill goals. I am excited for more opportunities to watch people increase in their skills, confidence and joy of music.
I received my Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education at the University of Alberta, where I studied flute and classical piano. Previously, I was enrolled in the music diploma program at Red Deer College, where I studied flute and jazz piano. I have been a part of several wind ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands and choirs and feel my music education has been quite diverse. Music lessons started for me at about age 5, and I have been learning and studying music ever since.
I grew up in a home filled with music - my three older siblings all took piano lessons as well, my oldest brother studied piano to the professional level, two other siblings taught themselves guitar, my mother arranged music, we sang together as a family, and there were always other instruments around ready to play. I soaked it all in and it was just natural for me to jump at the musical opportunities that came my way. This led me to complete my grade 8 RCM piano exam when I was in grade 8 at school, present a solo flute recital while still in high school, compete at provincial level Kiwanis festivals, participate in honor bands, accompany choirs and play in a pit band. When I was deciding what to study in University, I kept hearing people advise to "do what you love", so it was an easy decision to study music, and become a music teacher. i had already been teaching piano lessons for a few years at that point, and knew that it was something I wanted to continue to do. Since graduating from university, I have taught band and elementary music, with additional emphasis on Orff and Kodaly practices.
