Lessons in your home
All students enrolled with Bach To Basics receive lessons in their own home during their regular weekly scheduled lesson via Skype or Zoom. Private music lessons follow the regular academic year consisting of approximately 10 months (40 lessons). Students may start their studies at any time and summer lessons are available for those students who wish to study during their break.
Music education for any age
Lessons are available for students of all ages from children to adults. At Bach To Basics the emphasis is on the student’s musical needs, promoting good study and practice habits, and introducing the enjoyment music has to offer. I encourage parents of younger children to participate in their child’s learning by listening to their progress, participating in their music education, and encouraging family interest in the child’s musical activities. Parents are welcome to attend lessons.
All required books and materials needed for taking online private music instruction can be purchased online or at your local music store. Students are notified as to what materials they will require during their initial free introductory interview.
What you need for online lessons
Students will require a laptop, desktop, or tablet with either built in or connected camera, microphone and speakers near the instrument where they plan on taking lessons. The student must have an internet connection and either a free or paid version of Skype or Zoom installed on their laptop, desktop, or tablet. Contact Bach To Basics for any further questions you may have regarding setting up for online lessons.
Classical & jazz piano and theory
Bach To Basics specializes in providing a wide range of beginner to advanced, classical and jazz piano, and theory lessons for students of all ages. Lessons are based on the curriculums prescribed by The Royal Conservatory of Music, Conservatory Canada, A.B.R.S.M.(Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music)
Since I have advanced teacher certification with The Royal Conservatory of Music I’m able to prepare students for the practical and written examinations of “The Royal Conservatory of Music”.
While my main specialization is teaching beginner to advanced piano and theory lessons, my piano students who are interested in learning other instruments can receive beginner instruction on drums and guitar. Bach To Basics also offers specialized lessons in the areas of electronic music production, composition and orchestration, and students can even work on recording their own projects.
