BIOGRAPHY

Origins

I was born in Montreal, into a musically influenced family. My mother was a pianist and my father is a professionally trained trumpet player. The love and joy of music was thus instilled in me by my parents. Henceforth, music has been and will always be an important part of my life.

Early Beginnings

My foray into becoming a proven classical pianist started at age six. My parents, through whatever means possible, enrolled me into private piano lessons at the McGill Conservatory in Montreal, under the strict guidance and tutorage of the now deceased and former Associate Director of McGill Conservatory, Carl Urquhart.

Performance Enthusiasm

My talents were put on display at a very early age as I started playing music for various churches. This perpetuated a zeal and longing for public performances. Eventually, it all culminated into a desire and a will to share my fervor of music with the masses.

Sharing the Joy

After earning my music degree, I landed a teaching position in Toronto. Consequently, once there, I joined the Royal Conservatory of Music. True to my nature, I began teaching, encouraging and supporting children as they prepared for their practical music and theory examinations. Teaching, just like music, was a childhood pursuit. Therefore, I continued my studies and earned my MACTE Accreditation as a teacher and secured a French teaching position in a private elementary school.

Completeness

My excitement for all things piano and teaching drives me to execute fanatical pieces on the ivory keys. With a vivid imagination and dexterous hands, I can produce a Niagara of unforgettable melodies and musical interpretations for any extraordinary occasion.

REPERTOIRE
For receptions, it’s a welcome change of pace for dinner courses, when guests love to talk and socialize. My exquisite arrangement of wedding music has been loved and appreciated by many brides and grooms throughout the years, and I’m proud to add my collection of classical piano music to your wedding or any memorable event.

There’s an ideal marriage between wedding music and the piano. Piano music is perfect for special wedding highlights, from the Prelude to the Interlude.

My repertoire ranges from different styles of piano music, including the latest chart hits, love songs, film scores, songs from musicals, jazz standards and famous classical pieces.
