Composer & Arranger with 12 Years Experience giving Awesome Piano and Theory Classes in Calgary

About the lesson

My teaching style is to create a program of learning that suits the students needs, goals, and wants. I am comfortable using any piano or music method, or can create one. I have a solid track record for students succeeding at RCM exams, however my focus is on helping students become musicians that love their instrument and can play a variety of musical styles. I like to include improvising and composing/song writing as part of the lesson structure, and believe in celebrating progress. I like to use goal setting where the student has a set goal that is skill and age appropriate to help them see their weekly achievements.

About Challena

I am a music teacher, composer, and arranger with 12 years experience working on my ARCT in Piano through the Royal Conservatory. I am proficient in several other instruments including but not limited to guitar, woodwinds, lap harp (zither), and ukulele. I have worked extensively with special needs students, and founded my own non-profit music and arts society to assist those with limited means or options to achieve their dreams. I was named Top Piano Teacher in 2016, and I am currently studying voice in an effort to expand my musical horizons.
