Bonnie Alexander A. Mus. CNCM RMT

Thirty years have passed since I first started teaching in Collingwood. During this time I have continued to study and take courses pertinent to teaching piano, theory, harmony and pedagogy. Three years ago, I wrote and published musicianship books that are being used by students studying the CNCM curriculum. I have an associate degree from the Canadian National Conservatory of Music and am a member of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers’ Association.

Teaching has always been a rewarding experience for me. As a mother of two, I understand and relate well to children. Adults and teens are especially interesting and are welcome at my studio.

An in-depth interview helps the parent, the student, and myself to discover what level and focus the lessons will take.

Popular & Classical music, theory, harmony and pedagogy are the subjects that are available for study. Examination preparation is offered to meet all the requirements for either the Royal Conservatory or the Canadian National Conservatory. Participation in music festivals is also an option.

Special attention is given to the individual learning styles of the student. Analytical, aural, tactile, and visual are styles of learning. Most students have one style that is superior to the others.

Performance classes are scheduled twice in the academic year, with a music recital in June. The June recital recognizes the achievements of the students with monetary rewards or prizes.

Summer lessons are available for students who wish to achieve a specific goal, or just to further their musical studies. If you or your family & friends would like more information on an exciting learning opportunity please contact me.
