Welcome!

My private piano and theory studio is located in the west end of Ottawa, Ontario and serves Stittsville and Kanata. And with the recent addition of online lessons, now serves students from anywhere. My students range in level from beginner to advanced, with ages that range from 6 years old to adult.

The studio is located next to Guardian Angels Elementary School and is also close to the public library, with easy access by bus. There is a Kawai upright piano for private lessons and a Baldwin grand piano for group performance classes. Students and parents have access to the yearly performance calendar, weekly teaching schedule, and homework assignments. My blog opens a window into weekly lessons and practising tips, and highlights studio events and concerts around town.

Due to the stay-at-home directives from public health I am currently only providing online lessons. Things are humming along nicely, albeit just from behind the computer screen. Stay safe and wash your hands!

The studio is currently full for September 2020. Openings do occur throughout the year, so if you would like to be put on the waiting list for future openings please visit the contact page and send me a note!

I was skeptical when I heard that piano lessons had to move to an online format due to the covid-19 pandemic but it turned out much better than I expected. Not only is Kathleen a gifted musician and teacher but she is also very technically savvy. Online lessons included dual camera angles and an online music whiteboard to explain theory. Using video conferencing, Kathleen is able to see and correct my form and posture using language and modelling that makes it very clear what I need to change. Kathleen is just as effective online as she is in person.
