Nancy is a classically-trained pianist with an ARCT Diploma in Piano Performance. She graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an Honours Bachelor of Music Therapy degree and has been working as an accredited music therapist since 2013. Nancy has taught music to students of all ages and abilities. She is passionate about facilitating community music experiences and has developed numerous goal-based group music programs for camps and music schools. Nancy recently attended an Orff intensive program and completed Musikgarten training as well; she applies her skills and learning in HCA's early years programs.
Nancy’s goal is for all her students to feel comfortable applying their musical abilities in ways that are relevant to them – whether it is to prepare and excel at their RCM exams, to learn to play a piece that is meaningful for them, or to learn to sing and accompany themselves. Each lesson will be individualized to the student’s learning needs and will include 4 major components: technical skill building, learning and reviewing repertoire, ear training, and basic theory & keyboard harmony.
Nancy welcomes the opportunity for musical collaboration and looks forward to accompanying all prospective students on their journey to becoming creative and passionate musicians!
