Lessons

The potential of every child is unlimited
Shinichi Suzuki

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 and Suzuki Musique Montréal.

Lessons for Beginners – In the first 8-week term young beginners and their parents are introduced to the early pieces in Volume 1 Suzuki Piano through listening, singing, rhythm games, and playing the piano. Other topics typically include: an introduction to music-reading, hand and and arm position, posture, and the notes of the keyboard. Adults will follow an approach suited to their needs, abilities, and musical preferences. Here is a 4.5-minute animated Ted-Ed video showing How playing an instrument benefits your brain.

 

Students from 6 years old and up take weekly private piano lessons from September until May and can participate in group activities. Beginners can start at anytime during the year. For young children parents attend lessons and help with practicing at home. I have over 200 music books in my student lending library. Come and try my grand piano!
