Teaches ages: 4/5 (age 4/5 with consultation)

When it comes to music, I have never lost my childlike wonder and enjoy taking students on this journey as much as they enjoy being on it. The sky is the limit, as I offer both classical lessons and theory with exam preparation through RCM, and Rockschool based curriculum with exam prep as well as a variety of customized plans in between. From the retired senior who wants to take piano lessons for personal enjoyment to the young child who is just being introduced to the world of music for the very first time, I give them a solid foundation they can build and even set new goals upon. As a Recreation Therapist, I also offer a little advantage because, as someone trained and experienced in implementing programs for individuals with a diverse range of needs, I am quick to gently support each student in taking steady, frequent steps toward a goal until they confidently feel they’ve hit their stride. Find out more about Piano lessons with Trina Dunsmoor here
