Welcome to piano lessons in Deux-Montagnes! I have been teaching for 25 years and have a passion for music whether it be teaching, performing, or research. I hold a Master of Music degree from the University of Ottawa and an ARCT piano pedagogy diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music. I teach children and adults as well as more advanced students who wish to prepare conservatory exams. I am a member of the Quebec Music Teachers’ Association, Suzuki Musique Montréal and the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
Students from 5 years old and up take weekly private piano lessons from September until May, and can begin at anytime during the year. For young children parents attend lessons and help with practicing at home. I have a keyboard to rent to beginners, and I have over 200 music books in my student lending library.
Lessons for Beginners – In the first 8-week term young beginners and their parents can expect to familiarize themselves with the early piano pieces in Book 1 Suzuki Piano through listening, singing, rhythm games, and playing the piano. Other topics typically include: an introduction to music-reading, the basics of hand and arm position, how to sit properly at the piano, and the notes of the keyboard. Here is a 4.5-minute animated Ted-Ed video showing How playing an instrument benefits your brain.
