Someone Playing Piano



From the very first lessons, I integrate repertoire, technique, sight reading, theory, solfège and ear training games to ensure that my students don’t simply learn to play pieces, but to love and understand music.  I set clear expectations for home practice, while keeping the atmosphere light and fun.  As they progress, I give my students the option to pursue exams with the Royal Conservatory of Music, and I work with students and parents to ensure they are well-prepared. 

I also offer one-on-one Theory Lessons in preparation for the Royal Conservatory of Music Theory Exams.



After graduating from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2003, I began teaching piano in Ottawa while continuing my piano and theory studies with Paulette Price and Sandra Cooke. I received my ARCT (Piano Teacher) with First-Class Honours from the Royal Conservatory of Music. For many years I served on the council of the Ottawa Region Branch of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association. I established my Montréal studio in 2011, and I am a member of the Québec Music Teachers' Association. I have also taught drama and musical theatre to children and teens for the past 15 years, co-authoring four original musicals and many children’s plays.

Sheet Music for Piano

“We are very fortunate to have found Andrea.  She is exactly what we had always looked for in a piano teacher, and much more!  Since our daughter started taking lessons with her, we can clearly see a huge improvement in sight reading and in understanding the rudiments, as well as in her daily home practices where she no longer struggles with the reading of the music.  Now she really enjoys learning new and more challenging pieces, and is always looking forward to her weekly lesson.  Andrea is a young and enchanting teacher who is completely dedicated to the success and happiness of her students and we would not trade her for anything in the world” - N.
