Royal Conservatory of Music Certified Teacher

I am dedicated to offering creative and insightful piano instruction. That is why families join the studio and continue to believe in the value of what is accomplished here. You will quickly discover that this is a piano studio that stands out. I embrace new trends and materials in my teaching and I have a knack for motivating my students with engaging music, valuable skills and the confidence to excel.

Along with years of training and experience, I am certified as an Advanced Specialist in piano by The Royal Conservatory of Music Teacher Certification program, and I belong to the Nova Scotia Registered Music Teachers' Association (RMT).

The Piano Studio

Music Discoveries private piano studio is located in the Papermill Lake area of Bedford, Nova Scotia. The large, relaxing space is equipped with a beautiful Yahama baby grand piano, a Yamaha Clavinova digital piano (plus harps, a guitar and drums). There is an extensive lending library of teaching material and many creative teaching aids. We frequently make use of the iMac and iPad for composing, listening and research. Video and audio recording equipment come in handy for special projects.

Location

The studio is within walking distance of Bedford South, Bedford Academy, Basinview Elementary and CPA High School. Parents may enjoy the trails along Papermill Lake and a stop at Tim's or Jumping Bean while children are having lessons. We are also close enough to Sobeys that you can do some quick shopping during lesson time. I will provide you with the street address when we schedule an interview date.


Students

The majority of my students are between the ages of 6 and 18, many are friends with one another from school or neighborhoods. I believe in nurturing a healthy attitude toward learning and playing music. I offer a variety of goals and projects for my students throughout the year while keeping doors open for those students who may wish to do traditional challenges like exams.

What we do

My students study piano, harp or a little of both. Regardless of the instrument, our weekly lessons include all the basics you would expect, like technique, sight reading, rhythm development and aural skills. But with years of experience I have learned to approach these skills with a creative twist. Learning music can be hard work, but I know how to make things fun. The most important part of my job is getting to know my students and finding just the right music every step of the way. My students play classical, pop, jazz and contemporary with dabblings of composing and creative work.

Some of my students participate in RCM exams with excellent results. It's not something we do every year, but the door is always open to those who enjoy that challenge. I offer two or three performing opportunities each year. Sometimes it is a formal recital at the Music Room, or a fun barbeque concert or sharing music for the elderly in a seniors home.
