What was Beethoven’s favourite fruit? …BA-NA-NA-NAH!
Hey there! I’m Andrea, piano teacher at your service.
For the past 2 decades, I have enjoyed getting people EXCITED about music and watching my students develop into outstanding individuals throughout the years of piano lessons together.
I graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music certificate program with ARCT diplomas in piano performance and pedagogy. I also hold degrees in music, education, and piano pedagogy research at the University of Toronto (B.Mus, B. Ed) and the University of Ottawa (M.A.). I am a self professed “Piano Pedagogy Nerd” and attend professional development workshops regularly.
I am a member of the Ontario College of Teachers, the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association and the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers Association. I am also a Royal Conservatory of Music certified teacher in the Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced piano levels and was a former teacher for the Toronto District School Board.
When not teaching, I like to explore Toronto on foot and to fuss over my pet crested gecko, Truffles. I have a deep love of Dad jokes and invite you to share your favourites with me so that we might guffaw over them together. (Brownie points if you make it musical.)
