"Dynamic and Engaging"

"From the very first time we stepped into her studio, we knew that Gayle was a dedicated teacher. Our goal was to complete the RCM theory program from levels 8 to ARCT within two years with an accelerated program.  Although we were feeling intimidated by the course load, Gayle organized lessons into very manageable modules. As high school and CEGEP students with school work and other extra-curricular activities, we never felt overwhelmed. It built our trust that we would meet the RCM examination deadlines. The lessons were dynamic and engaging. Her passion for both teaching and music made our Saturday mornings worthwhile."

I hold an ARCT in Piano Pedagogy from the Royal Conservatory of Music
I am a member of the RCM College of Examiners (Theory) and an RCM-certified music teacher. I also belong to the Quebec Music Teachers' Association (APMQMTA). 
Over 35 years of experience has honed my skills in developing a stimulating and enthusiastic approach to teaching music theory and piano. I believe that a logical, progressive learning strategy and confidence-building goals are the keys to a positive experience, a sense of achievement and examination success.
