I have over 25 years of teaching experience, focused mainly on beginning and intermediate students of all ages.
Learning a musical instrument or participating in group music making, develops more than just musical talent. Critical life skills such as perserverance, patience, diligence and determination are the wonderful by-products of the experience. Seeing my students grow in every way brings me so much joy.
Lesley is patient, and has a delightful personality. She points out my errors in such an encouraging way that it never feels like criticism. Very pleased. I like how she is pacing me as well.
Lesley has been teaching my 2 sons piano for about 6 months and she is fantastic! The boys have learned so much and look forward to going to their weekly lesson as well as practicing! She motivates them with her positive remarks and encouragement that they really are learning to love music and playing the piano!
After initial contact which will determine whether the student and I would be a good fit, I offer a free 15 minute lesson to learn even more about the prospective student's learning style,experience, strengths and areas that need development. If the parent or prospective student agree, we will go ahead and schedule weekly lessons.
I have a BMus in Piano Performance and have taught private, group, classroom and choral music for the past 25 years.
