PIANO LESSONS

Heidi Saario
M.Mus, B.Mus, RMT, RCM Examiner

Adding music lessons to your life brings many wonderful rewards. Studies have proven that children, of all ages, who study a musical instrument become better students: they learn responsibility and discipline, take pride in their accomplishments, and thus gain in confidence. They learn to think in a logical manner and will perform better in school.

My goal is to create an environment of encouragement and caring in the safety of my private home studio in our quiet neighbourhood. Every student is special. I believe that an instructor who is well-trained in all aspects of pedagogy can bring out their musicality and creativity. In addition to the joy of learning to play the piano, the lessons will include music theory, ear-training, and sight-reading and improvisation.

I wish to inspire my students to love music. My undergraduate studies in Europe and my graduate studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto have exposed me to different aspects of pedagogy from all over the world. I am a member of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association and certified to teach piano for all levels and ages. I am also a senior member of the College of Examiners for the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations. I regularly prepare students for recitals, exams, and festivals.
