Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. The discipline, perseverance and commitment to learning Music has crossed over into other areas of my life. The lifelong commitment I have made to Music has taught me about willpower and patience. More importantly, it has taught me to set goals throughout my life.
I have an undergraduate degree in Music Education and a Bachelor of Education degree specializing in Primary/Junior education. I studied Piano privately from the age of 8 until my late twenties. I also played the Clarinet from elementary school until I was in university. Weekly piano lessons, band rehearsals and concerts have been a part of my entire life. I cannot remember a time when I was not in an ensemble group rehearsing for concerts or preparing for a RCM piano exam.
I have been an elementary teacher with the TDSB for over twenty years and have taught Music and the Arts for the last five. As a Music teacher, I have taught thousands of children how to play various ORFF instruments. In addition, I have led various extra-curricular clubs, such as choir, drumming club, recorder club and uklulele club. Each year hundreds of students are prepared for concerts and performances. I hope to now embark on a new adventure of teaching beginner students how to play the Piano.
