Step One:

Look for qualified & experienced teachers

Look for a teacher who has the qualifications and experience you desire. Canada has many towns with populations under 100,000, and many lack music teachers. With platforms like Skype or Zoom, you can now connect with piano teachers who are beyond your local area. You can view more about my 25 years of experience and qualifications here.

step two:

Flexible scheduling for your lifestyle

Look for a teacher who can fit your lessons into your busy lifestyle. Canada has six different time zones, meaning your ideal lesson time might be waiting for you in another time zone, where a fantastic teacher is eager to begin lessons with you. You can find out more about lessons here.

step three:

Other students experiences

Search for teachers whose students are pleased with their experience. Statistics Canada reported the presence of 67,600 private music teachers in Canada in 2021. Feedback from fellow students who have embarked on the piano learning journey can be a valuable source to consider. You can see what students say about me below; I appreciate their comments.

step four:

Technology for enhanced lessons

Canada is a vast country with varying infrastructures; consider your internet connection speed and embrace reliable and user-friendly technology with clear audio and video, such as Skype or Zoom. Consider teachers who use online resources to enhance student learning. You can find out more about live online piano or theory lessons here.

step five:

Tailored lesson plans designed for you

Canada is home to around 38 million people with individual interests and goals. Pick a piano or theory teacher who customizes their lessons around you, your goals, interests, and learning style. You can find out more about my teaching method and technique here.


step six:

The lifelong value of music

Canada encompasses 9.985 million km², housing 8,016 cities and towns, according to the 2021 Statistics Canada data. In larger Canadian cities and smaller towns, prices can be equally affected by the cost of living or the lack of available teachers. Consider factors such as the depth of instruction, additional resources, and the support you receive. Think of it as a musical investment tailored to your specific needs.

step seven:

Clear communication

Effective teaching is centred around communication. Choosing an online instructor in Canada with whom you can actively communicate is crucial. The shared Canadian context provides a foundation for meaningful conversations and genuine collaborative relationships between students and teachers. This connection creates an atmosphere where students feel comfortable asking questions and seeking musical guidance.

step eight:

Diverse music repertoire

A variety of musical styles and genres can be appealing. Learners often seek online piano lessons that allow them to explore different types of music, whether classical, jazz, pop, or contemporary. To find out more about what I teach, please click here.

Navigating the online learning journey is always smoother, with a bit of support in between lessons. Whether you have a question itching for an answer or want to share a recording of your practice for constructive feedback, look for a teacher who supports your learning between lessons. In my studio, it’s more than just possible; it’s encouraged!

step Eleven:

Accessibility and inclusivity

Canada is filled with a wonderfully diverse community, which calls for a mindful approach when seeking online piano lessons. Finding lessons that cater to individuals of all ages and abilities is crucial. Inclusivity, cultural sensitivity, and the flexibility to accommodate diverse learning needs are vital considerations when enrolling in private piano or theory lessons.
