Happy New Year!

Yes, happy new year – I haven’t posted since 2014!

I thought I’d share a bit more about my studio with you. I teach from my home in what would have been my dining room, but is now a lovely piano studio. I teach on Wednesdays (from 9 am to 9 pm) and on Thursday evenings (from 6 pm to 9 pm). I do have some time slots available on both days, so contact me if you’re interested.

I teach children as young as 4 years old, teens, adults and seniors. I recommend Play A Story for those ages 4 to 6 years and Simply Music for everyone 7 years of age and older. Simply Music piano lesson work for every age, but I find that children 6 and under prefer exploration to direction on the piano. Play A Story offers a bit of direction to guide their exploration.

All of my students compose and improvise. These are key elements to truly learning the piano. If this worries you, I can work with you to help you feel comfortable creating on the piano. I was there myself – even after many years of Royal Conservatory piano, I did not know how to improvise or compose, but within a year of Simply Music piano, I had shed my fears. If you ask me to play piano, I can just play and play and play 🙂

Enough about me. Tell me about you.

One thought on “Happy New Year!

  1. Thank You for reaching out!
    I am so busy running a family, but have just enough time to still have a hand in music to play a little something everyday. Your approach and story is very similar to that of my own! I developed a board game based on the will to just compose and play. I only knew how to sight read, and just a few years ago studied how music is put together. Simply Music is a educational approach I just heard about, and am really impressed with the hospitality of the group and its’ founders. So glad you are friendly because it encourages me to devote some time to your blog and to keep reading. Inspired, Tosha Clifford (Lazarus)
