At Dove's Nest Music Studio, I am focused on providing quality music instruction in a private (or small group) setting that best suits your needs.

I am a professional teacher/performer with over 30 years experience in both Canada and the United States. I have taught in both elementary and high schools. My private students range in age from 4 to 80+ years old.

I bring patience, fun and the joy of learning music to every lesson.

Whether you want to supplement school playing, learn a new instrument, prepare for RCM exams or university auditions - I can help! Many of my past students have gone on to become music teachers and/or performers themselves!

I can customize lessons to suit your needs!

My younger beginners play for fun and to learn the basics of music.

Some of my students work toward achievements such as RCM exams, festival performances and university auditions.

Others take lessons for fun and the pure enjoyment of being able to play

or to supplement school playing.

My older beginners are enjoying being able to learn an instrument they have always wanted to play.

All ages are welcome - from 4 to 104!

Music is an important part of everyone's life. Now is the time to explore what you can do!

If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.

I hope to hear from you soon! 


Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart!

I offer quality music education not often found in "music store" lessons.

Music should be fun!

Enjoy your lessons while expanding your musical knowledge.

You're never too young or old to experience the joy of music!

Remember -

Music is laughter of the heart!
