Supportive, high-quality lessons for students age 7 and up
I maintain a busy private studio at Calgary Music Academy in southwest Calgary. Please click here for registration information.
Learning music is a process that requires patience and discipline. It can be a formidable challenge, but for those who are willing to work, the rewards are very great. I especially love to work with students who are curious, dedicated to regular practicing, and committed to long-term goals.
What I expect from you:
Regular attendance at lessons (30, 45, or 60 minutes per week)
Daily practice at home, with parental supervision as required
A supportive, non-competitive attitude towards other students
A growth mindset, focused on incremental progress over time
What you can expect from me:
Personalized lessons for students ages 7 and up
Thorough preparation for RCM exams and local festivals
Regular performance opportunities through monthly masterclasses
Optional additional performance opportunities through CMAC performance outreach program
A focus on growth and overall musicianship
Patience, good humour, and encouragement as we work to achieve our goals
