Piano instructor with 15 years of experience for beginner students in Scarborough home

Methodology

My teaching methods is to start from the beginning and get a solid foundation before actual starting to play piano. This will make learning the piano faster in the long run. Patience is a virtue as learning a new instrument is like learning a new language.

Background

I played piano growing up and have taken music all throughout school. I have completed musical theory courses and would also be willing to teach that. Lots of experience with teaching young children how to play piano for the first time
