Approach: Teaching as a full-time job
"It's my passion. I devote all of my energy to my students. I want them not only to love making music, but also to gain an understanding of the life and works of the world's greatest composers."
"It's important for me to choose a personalised program for each student, based on age, personality, and abilities. My goal is to broaden their horizons and challenge them while gradually building up their technical skills."
"I encourage my young students to share their gift and accomplishments throughout the year... whether it be at our Christmas and spring concerts, or by occasionally performing at retirement homes. It's a wonderful way to build their self-confidence. Also, I organise some 'Après-midi musicaux' [Musical Afternoons] to give the students a chance to meet, play their favourite pieces, and essentially have a good time together. After weeks of private lessons, they love to reconnect and see how they have progressed."
"Every year, a few of my most motivated students participate in the Concours Inter-Élèves organised by l'École de musique Vincent-d'Indy. It's an enriching experience, and I'm proud to say that we get several winners each year!"
"The lessons are held in a relaxed and comfortable home environment, and the students get to play on a professional Yamaha piano in the studio."
To help the student develop a solid musical base, along with a true appreciation for artistic expression.
The students perform twice a year on a magnificent antique Steinway piano. Fun fact: the great Sergei Rachmaninoff played on the same piano, in Montréal, in the early 20th century.
