I specialize in making lessons fun, by combining music with games, performance, challenges and rewards to help students of all ages learn to love music.
Lessons are available for children age 3 and up.
After completing my Bachelor of Music at UVic, I taught ‘traditional’ piano lessons for 10 years. Then I had to put my own boys in piano and thought, “there must be something better than these boring dry lessons.” So I started researching and finally found Music for Young Children (MYC).
I took the INTENSIVE MYC training and learned more about the psychology of how kids learn music and the best way to make that knowledge stick, than I had during my teaching degree. It was mind blowing and I was completely sold. The main ingredient was making it FUN and do we ever have fun!!! Come to a free demo lesson and see how I do it.
"For the past 8 years my son has been taking piano lessons with Daphne. She has an innate ability to meet children's needs in a fun and supportive way while providing them with an exceptional musical education.
We have loved having her become part of our "family" over the years just as much as we have loved hearing the music flowing from our piano. I highly recommend Daphne and her approach to anyone looking to add piano lessons to their schedule."
