ABOUT THE TEACHER

Hi my name is Emily Carter, and I'm so excited you're interested in piano lessons. Finding the right teacher is an art in itself so here is a little about me. 


My teaching philosophy focuses on developing students who are creative and have the skills to improvise, interact with others, and explore music. I learned the basics of piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music program. Early on, I wanted more than to just read the notes on the page. I wanted to  write my own songs play music with others  and know the history of the music. I self taught myself how to improvise and chord and began to play in jazz combos, church bands, and write my own songs.  I've learned a lot since then, and now  I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music and Concentration in Psychology from Trinity Western University and more than a decade of teaching experience.
