Here’s what my students have to say about me:
Andrea is a superb instructor, with an excellent knowledge of the repertoire and pedagogy for her students. She puts an emphasis on living Canadian composers, showcasing the talent in this country, and knows how to motivate her students well, with a combination of choice repertoire, games, and rewards. Andrea is personable, reliable, tireless, and is quick to respond to queries and concerns. I highly recommend Andrea to anyone who is looking for the right piano teacher.

Andrea changed my perspective on learning. She has given me so much confidence in my ability to learn anything I put my mind too. I always never felt academic enough to learn music – especially reading it. She has been so kind, thoughtful and somehow magically gave me skills to learn piano. I still have so much to learn but I cant wait to continue on my journey.
Honestly an amazing instructor, and creates a fun non judgemental learning environment.

Andrea is an amazing teacher. As an adult learner, Andrea is able to adjust lessons to meet my constantly changing needs (often depending on how my day is going). She makes every lesson stress-free, fun, and yet I always learn something. Andrea is able to teach in different ways – originally I just wanted to learn pieces, which went very well, then I decided to focus on the RCM grades, again going very well. Every week I see a little bit of progress – I remember when I finally could sight read without having to think of each note’s name, or when she taught me how to play along with the recording – and the rhythm was so easy. On top of the great teaching, our original location is so beautiful – in a church – we are able to do our concerts (3x a year) in the church with an amazing grand piano. With Zoom teaching, she has made it very easy. She has a great setup at home. I have been taking lessons with Andrea for 2 years and I continue to look forward to every lesson every week.
