Regardless of why they quit, everyone returns filled with high hopes and noble intentions. I welcome them all to the studio where lessons are giving guilt free. And, enthusiasms are supported and encouraged.

I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted percussionist and drum teacher.
