Mission Statement

I am a confident, happy, and loving music teacher. I strive towards excellence in my music abilities and in teaching.


I have set up my music studio to shape, instruct, and develop students' abilities to perform with technical accuracy and sensitive musicality.


My studio approach incorporates methodologies from many great music educators, including Zoltan Kodaly, and Shinichi Suzuki. I am a certified Suzuki teacher in the 7 piano levels with over twenty years of experience. I am also a certified teacher with the Royal Conservatory of Music whose exam program works well for busy students and covers many genres. I also incorporate movement education and body awareness from the Alexander Technique.


I provide ensemble opportunities as well as performance opportunities with a minimum of two acoustic studio recitals every year.


I encourage students to explore many different styles and cultures of music, especially ones in their heritage.


As students are supported by their family life, this studio also supports the family by encouraging family observation at lessons and by parent training to guide the success of the student at home.


The successful music student from my studio will have the knowledge and tools to be an introspective, independent, and sensitive musician.

you can dance.

If you can talk

you can sing.
