Lessons for Fall 2019

Fall 2019 Lessons

If you are interested in becoming a part of the studio, you can call me at
613 - 347-3428
or email

Some fun things you will experience as part of our studio:

Piano Ready! Set! Go!

A series of  three semester group classes designed for 4 and 5 year olds
where they experiment with rhythm and music, do crafts and build
knowledge that prepares them for regular private lessons.
Only 4  places in this dynamic group are available and
3 are already filled!  One opening left on Fridays at 3:45 pm!

More Group Lessons!

Do you have a family that would like to take lessons, but you find it rather expensive?  
Ask me about group lessons.  A family of 3 or 4 can sign up and take a group lesson.
There are many benefits to this approach - ensemble playing and games
being one advantage, as well as the fact that the group meets for a full hour each week.
Less expensive per student than private lessons, this could be the answer to 
your search for inexpensive yet good solid lessons for your children.
Groups of three or four students.

Tree of Success 2019!

This exciting new activity will engage all students in
a Studio Challenge for the entire year!
I want to keep this one a surprise - so I'm not going to
share too much here.... 

40 Piece Challenge!

This started a number of years ago and has grown bigger each year!
Beginners start with a challenge of learning 40 pieces in a year. The first year, a few did not
complete the challenge, so I said - let's just keep going and when you earn it, then you
will get your reward at the next recital.  As soon as you finish, you can start the 80 piece 
challenge. Soon, it became 120 piece challenge, then 160 piece challenge.
This year, some students will be starting their 200 piece challenge!
So much fun and each level is rewarded with a medal at the recital!

Mad Minute Challenge

This started as a challenge to name all 22 notes of the staff within one minute and
has morphed into a leveled game where many theory concepts are reviewed
and honed - all within the space of one minute!  Rewarded of course with - what else?
 - a few sweet treats in the number of cards you have successfully named!
Yup - the candy incentive is real folks!

Festival Opportunities

There are a number of opportunities to participate in local festivals each year if 
one wishes to do so.  Kinsmen Festival in Cornwall is a non-competitive
festival in a workshop format.  Great for kids that thrive in that environment.
MCM Festival in Alexandria is a more competitive environment and also available to 
those wishing that format.  Further afield, one can participate in the Kiwanis Festival
in Ottawa as well.

Exam Opportunities

For those wishing to pursue exams, preparation for exams are available up to and including
Royal Conservatory of Toronto Level 8. Those who are dedicated to honing their 
skills to this level of performance will find a teacher that will support them
in all areas of their endeavour

End of Year Recital

By far the most exciting time of year is our end of year Recital.  We do the celebrating right by
having each student perform 2 pieces.  Often there are duets!
We end the night with awards and goodies!

Variety of Styles

Nothing is out of the question to try at the studio.  From jazzy music to classical, 
video game music, chording and  popular music.  Even composing your own music - 
all this is available if you wish to put in the work.  
All you need to do is make your desire known and I will do my best to make it happen.
