Kildaire Farm area
I began teaching when I was 14. I absolutely love teaching piano and working with students. It is my passion and brings me so much joy.
I grew up taking group lessons but went to college and was trained classically. I definitely carry the two styles of music with me in my teaching and try to give my students a good mix of both. I'm a teacher new to the area so as my studio grows, I look forward to offering more group lesson structures along with private lessons.
