I absolutely believe in the importance of music study to enhance brain development and cognition, for relaxation and healing, and to broaden our larger social and cultural experience. Music lessons are a wonderful gift to give to your child, and you will cherish the time you spend watching them discover and delight in the musical world!!
I have formal pedagogical training in piano instruction and I am a Certified Teacher with the Royal Conservatory of Music. I believe music lessons are more than teaching your child to play music... it is about teaching your child to play musically!!
Additionally, I feel it is important, as a music professional, to volunteer and contribute to the larger music community. This allows me to connect and grow with other professionals in our community and to help guide our young musicians in whatever their musical path may be.
