Thank you to all who nominated me and voted for me in Airdrie Community Votes. I have received Bronze in the Youth Music Lessons Category. I am thrilled and honoured!
I have only been teaching in Airdrie for just under 3 years. I am so excited that my studio is so well known. I can hardly believe it. Thank you so much.

I am so excited to announce that there are a few spaces that have opened for fall registration. Thank you for your patience who were on my waiting list. Because I have made space for all those on the waiting list. And there are still a few spaces left. So don't miss out!
Now that our first week of lessons has finished, I wanted to let you know of a few changes around here. Just like before, registration forms along with your registration fee and first monthly amount must be returned to hold your time slot. Here is the change, I know have an instrument requirement. For voice and theory students only, this does not apply to you. This is for piano students.
Our new instrument policy. Home Instrument: An acoustic piano, or a digital piano that has a full-size keyboard (88 keys), has touch-sensitive keys, and at lease one pedal is required. This will give my students the proper tools to learn technique, and expression and access more repertoire.
There are so many smaller keyboards that vary in quality. They do not help a student learn or stick to learning as much as piano, whether digital or acoustic. As my colleague from Paloma Piano says; "They do not sound or feel like a piano and practicing on a keyboard will be discouraging."
We have also found that having a better instrument inspires a student to practice and learn. And as many of my posts say, practice is a vital part of learning any instrument.
I know you appreciate me having a high quality instrument to teach your children on. And it will be a great way to help students become better piano players too. Because even if you have only been learning for a week or your whole life (like me), you are a pianist! We want the best. Because you're worth it.
