Over 18 yrs of teaching experiences
Lessons are mainly built on the student's level and interest with the incorporation of fundamental piano techniques. Alice is familiar teaching a wide range of repertoire from Classical to fun playing Animé. Students will have the opportunity to develop their musicianship through some ear training and sight-reading exercises. She strongly emphasizes the proper body and hand positioning which lead to a relaxed and natural way of playing the instrument.
Alice has been also actively preparing her students for the RCM and the McGill Conservatory piano exams when they have requested this from her and she takes pride in this preparation with her students.
She is a caring and open-minded teacher who can relate to students of all ages. She also encourages students to share their own musical ideas and compositions. She believes great teachers also learn from their students!

Perfect! Alice is patient with her students, she offers very conservative comments and she's also really encouraging! She manages to keep the lessons engaging and interactive even in an online setting.
It is always a pleasure to share a lesson with Gina! She is ambitious in her choice of repertoire and she demonstrates nice musicality in her playing. Attentive and eager to improve on her playing skills/techniques. Thank you, Gina! :)
I have been taking piano lessons with Alice for two years now and i never regretted the decision to pick her as my teacher. Not only did i progress so much with her great guidance, but she also helped me gain a lot of confidence in my skills. If i had to do it again i wouldn’t hesitate a second.
Alice J is overall a lovely piano teacher. Her patience and clarity in conveying the lessons over zoom keeps me easily engaged, and encouraged to learn more!
Alice has been my piano teacher for four years now. I met her through a music school, and stayed with her once she went independant.
She writes detailed notes every lesson to guide my weekly practice, which helps a lot. She is quick to identify bad habits, and suggest tips and exercises to correct them. She provides nuanced guidance to interpret pieces based on the composer and style of a piece. She is very polite and professional.
Every year, she organises recitals for her students in front of friends and family, as well as smaller meetings for her advanced students, where they can discuss pieces and give feedback. In the summer, she'll invite her students to perform around the city, and tour the various public pianos.
I highly reccomand Alice to anyone looking for a reliable teacher, that will help them improve at their own rhytm while providing a friendly and supportive environment, both through classical pieces and modern songs of your choosing.
Alice est une professeur extraordinaire!
Bienveillante, patiente, pédagogue, douce et toujours le sourire aux lèvres.
Elle écoute ce que les élèves veulent jouer/travailler et s’adapte aux préférences.
Elle organise des événements pour que les élèves se retrouvent et a mis en place des cours en ligne depuis le début de la pandémie. Elle a toujours plein de bonnes idées !
C’est un vrai bonheur de la voir chaque semaine!
Je la recommande +++++ !
Merci pour tes cours Alice !
