Composing Music


Rudiments, Harmony, History, Analysis
Beginner to ARCT Diploma Level

Theory, Harmony, and History are more than just required conservatory exams!  A strong knowledge of theory helps students to understand the structure and history of their pieces enabling them to play with more understanding, depth, and emotion. Group theory provides an opportunity for students to learn in an interactive environment, where each student contributes their questions and triumphs to help the group learn.  Private theory lessons provide each student with individualized education where they can work at their own pace.

Zoom works better for theory than for piano lessons. I have a great system using Google Classroom for homework assignments and file sharing; a touchscreen computer and templates for lesson notes; and systems for including parents in the process.

As an active professional member of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association, my lesson policies are designed following ORMTA guidelines.

Please speak to me personally to find out the tuition rates.

Private lessons are scheduled weekly.  Students register for the full RCM exam prep season (September to May) and commit to weekly lessons, homework, and examinations.

Summer lessons are also available to prepare for the August exams.  Some students find great success with accelerated learning and extended lessons throughout the summer months.

Please note: ZOOM or other Video platform lessons will be approximately 15 minutes shorter than the in-person lesson equivalent to allow time for marking, sharing notes, and other asynchronous lesson aspects. The lesson fee will not be decreased as the amount of teacher time needed for Zoom lessons is significantly more than for in-person theory lessons.
