As a pianist and a teacher, it is important to assess the abilities of each individual student and to be attentive their particular strengths. It is valuable to allow for each student to develop the necessary tools to achieve their desired goals.
I am currently a PhD candidate in musicology in my fifth year at McGill. I pursued my Masters' at the University of Ottawa, where I completed my degree in musicology. I did my undergraduate degree in Brandon, Manitoba where I completed a degree in piano performance. During the course of my education, I have traveled throughout North America and Europe as both a musician and as a music researcher. These experiences have helped shape my vision as a teacher. I have also been a student of many great teachers and professors and have been influenced by their pedagogical approaches to the piano.
In the case of cancellations, I should be notified 24 hours in advance (otherwise the charge for the lesson remains). Makeup lessons will be offered for missed lessons.
