Teaching Approach and Lesson Topics:

I teach piano to beginner and intermediate learners, tailoring my lessons to your interests and goals. I love to pass on my knowledge and my passion for this discipline. I structure my teaching in a very organized way to optimize progress. However, in my classes, there’s always room for fun! If you want to learn more, I invite you to look at my lesson plan. Looking forward!

Here is the lesson plan for BEGINNERS. For the intermediates, it’s almost the same, but with more in-depth theoretical and practical aspects. // I present to you an example of the first 5 lessons we would have together. Please note that I am very open and attentive to my students. I integrate as many of my student’s ideas as possible into the course. I adapt my classes according to the personal interests of the student and their musical tastes. Lastly, I teach the piano with:

  • L’ABC du piano, Boris Berlin (For 12 years olds and -)

  • Cours de Base Alfred pour le piano, Alfred Music (For 12 years old and +)

  • A dozen a day: Initiation, Edna-Mae Burnam

  • Elementary Rudiments Of Music, Barbara Wharram (For intermediate)

Education:

I have been playing the piano for over a decade. I started at the age of 6 at La Petite Patrie music school for 6 years. Then, around the age of 15, I took private piano lessons to level up. I was trained in classical music and jazz, but today my interests are more focused on film music and popular music.
