Music is everywhere in our lives, not only in our homes or through our earphones, it is in nature. Music surrounds us, you can hear the rhythm in our daily lives if you listen closely enough. I believe that learning a musical instrument doesn’t only improve a student’s musicality but also teaches responsibility, hand-eye coordination, cooperation, patience, history and punctuality. Growing up, music was such an integral part of my life and left a significant positive impact while connecting me to my peers. After years of teaching, I hope that I can continue to make a similar positive impression on parents and most importantly, students.
As a teacher it is important for my students to not only grow and learn but also have fun too. Passion cultivates progress. I have seen how rewarding it can be for students to master a song or a set of scales which is one of the many reasons I love teaching. In my classes we will build a solid song repertoire, study music theory, understand musical history and advance through levels. Each student will have their own notebook detailing what was studied in class and the expectations for practicing outside of class, making practicing just as effective at home as it is in the classroom. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced I welcome you to my class where we will have fun, accomplish your goals and take your skills to new heights.
In my classes I aim to create a passion for music in my students which translates to amazing progress. Art and music have always been an integral part of my life. I started playing piano at the age of five which heavily shaped my youth and teenage years. I was classically trained in the Royal Conservatory of Music, doing regular exams, festivals and competitions. I was lucky enough to understand music to such a proficient level that it was easy for me to pick up many different brass and woodwind instruments when entering junior high school. I was invited to play in upper year and high school bands when I was in eighth grade, as well as local orchestras around Southern Ontario. My parents supported me in not only my piano studies with a private teacher but also playing trumpet and French horn in a different band every day of the week. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Fine Art and continued teaching and practicing music. Playing musical instruments and the way it connected me to others brought such a positive sense of community in my life, I wish to help others grow their musical abilities as well.
I started playing piano at the age of 5 and quickly started doing private lessons. Being trained classically with the Canada Conservatory Repertoire meant that I regularly did examinations, and festivals. My piano teacher would hold recitals twice a year for her students to showcase their skills. Graduating into middle school opened the doors for my exploration of woodwind and brass instruments. I was one of the few students who could easily read sheet music and had ear training, therefore the music teacher let me learn over seven different instruments before settling on the most challenging; french horn. In middle school and high school I would play in several upper year bands including the junior and senior jazz bands. In high school I was one of two students chosen to play in honour band, a band composed of the top two students from twenty high schools across three counties across Southern Ontario. My parents heavily encouraged my musical practice, they enrolled me in two different orchestras in neighbouring cities as well as Lakefield Music Camp, an intensive summer camp at a private boarding school. In university I started teaching both music and English to children and found my passion helping others. These experiences heavily shaped and enriched my musical abilities which have translated into a positive yet impactful style of teaching.
