My methods of teaching are dependent on the student. My lessons are based on an assessment of where the student is at currently, then focused on perfecting various areas, individually, in order to achieve a better understanding of music. My approach is flexible depending on the path the student is on. I have experience teaching very structured courses, but also improvisatory techniques.
I am a music teacher located in Guelph and have been playing piano for 19 years. I've completed my RCM Grade 10 (which includes all RCM theory), am a 2 time Provincial Finalist, and am currently completing a Minor in Music at the University of Guelph. This is something I thoroughly enjoy, and I have experience teaching students of all ages.
Serena is very patient and knowledgeable. She makes concepts very easy to understand and creates an environment where you are always comfortable to ask questions if needed. Serena is also very flexible and understanding, she will approach topics in different ways according to what is the best method for each student. Overall, I would very highly recommend Serena as I’ve loved every lesson I’ve taken with her!
I witnessed Serena to be an amazing teaching as I attended a music theory workshop on advanced keys, that she led. She provided various resources for others and myself to enhance our musical talents. Key topics such as chord substitutions, circle of fifths, and key signatures were explained throughly with worksheets provided. With practice time involved, I was able to grasp the concepts spoken of and further develop these skills. Personally, I was able to grow in my musical journey from this workshop. It was a positive learning experience that I enjoyed and benefited from. Serena is very talented and her musical capabilities are very trustworthy. I would definitely recommend as she is an excellent teacher.
