Piano & Violin Lessons
For All Levels



Learning to play an instrument might seem daunting at first, but even after your first lesson you will be able to play something meaningful. Everyone can start to learn to play an instrument no matter their age!



Maybe you want to go over previous lessons or  you feel ready to graduate from beginner music lessons. Intermediate courses will give you the tools to excel in your violin or piano playing.



Are you ready to take your well-honed skills to the next level? Maybe you have a grade 8 distinction already, but are looking to graduate to the concert halls! I will be able to help with methodical and motivational teaching.
