I believe that learning is individualistic–no two students learn the same, and thus they shouldn't be taught using the same methods. Music, specifically, is a very personal experience for all, and I believe that when a teacher builds a connection with their students, a passion for learning will begin to grow. My techniques are based under Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, meaning my lessons can be adapted to any learning style. I believe that learning takes time and effort from both the teacher and the student; when the two can work together, lifelong learning takes place.
I am currently working towards completing my grade 10 piano exam with the Royal Conservatory of Music. I have 13 years of experience playing piano, including classical, jazz, accompaniment, and contemporary/pop. My practical skills are grounded in my understanding of music methodology and theory. I have a passion for teaching and am a current Teacher Candidate at Lakehead University.
I also have experience with a variety of other instruments, including strings, woodwinds, and brass.

I worked with Meghan, she is very calm, she has lots of patients, and truly cares about others. And will take time to explain anything to anyone if they ask her. She cares.
A great person and incredibly well spoken! I did Girl Guides of Canada with Meghan for 5 years and saw her work one on one with countless younger girls! She is amazing at explaining things to all ages and has all the characteristics to make a fantastic math tutor!
Meghan's passion for teaching shines through in all she does. I would recommend her services to anyone who asked.
