Music Theory & Piano Teacher in Sooke
Email: [email protected]
I grew up wanting to play the piano, but that didn’t happen. When I was 30 years old, I decided who is stopping me now, and started lessons. Go forward a few years, and I started teaching in 1995. I took various professional development courses to keep myself up to date, and still do. I must say that after all these years teaching piano and theory, my love of music hasn’t diminished. I love that I can take students on their musical journey, and hopefully plant the love of music seeds that will last a lifetime.
When I started the age group, I was teaching was 6 and up. I prepared students for piano practical exams as well as theory through the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. I’m very proud of the marks my students received. Over time, I found I was getting younger students and today teach preschoolers, age 4 and 5, and go up from there. It can be challenging, however, when you see the smiles and the fun they are having, that is a good reward.
Forward to today and COVID. Everything changed when it hit us. It’s been a hard two years; however, I started my lessons online until we could have students back in my studio. I can now offer in-studio and online lessons.
Music Qualifications & Achievements:
When I took lessons when I was younger, work really got in the way, and as I’ve learned ‘no practice does make perfect.’ So, I worked on my career. Then I had the opportunity to stay at home and dug into lessons.
I’m very proud of the work I put in getting my exams done and I’ve gone on to take a couple of pedagogy courses, attended many seminars, and still take various courses to keep my head in the game.
I teach my lessons from a teaching space located in Sooke, BC V9Z 0A9, Canada. My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking. I also offer online music lessons. For more information about my music lessons simply get in touch.
Awesome piano teacher. I took lessons as an adult and loved them with her. Highly recommend her.
Studied with classical piano with Trish for over 10 years. She’s incredible— in addition to practical piano teaching, she also ensures her students learn the appropriate theory as well. We studied the Royal Conservatory of Music repertoire and she prepared me extremely well for post secondary schooling majoring in music at Camosun College and the Victoria Conservatory of Music. She will ensure your child has a well-rounded strong knowledge when learning to play the piano. Highly recommend!
