Concert pianist with over 14 years of experiences gives piano and musical theory lessons in Toronto

Methodology

I have a student-centered approach to teaching, focused on implementing a personalized curriculum to best meet the student's needs. I am an energetic and passionate musician, and I always focus on encouraging and motivating my students. I believe in setting goals but also teaching at the student's pace.
I have a Master's degree in Art History and a Master's degree in Classical History from the University of London, England. I hold a Honours Bachelor of Art from the University of Toronto. I have been playing piano for over 14 years, completing the Level 10 RCM examination, and currently working towards obtaining my ARCT Certificate. I have completed all RCM levels of Music Theory. I have participated in both local and international piano competitions, with either first or second place standing, including representing Canada at the Cremona International Competition and Festival held in Cremona, Italy.

Background

I have been tutoring for over a year, students of all ages from beginner to advanced levels. They have all achieved great success, including performing in recitals and competitions across the Toronto area.
