Whether it be jazz, rock, metal, or more, I enjoy, perform, and write in a multitude of genres. I have been ambitious in writing and performing my whole life. In my early years, I studied classical piano in the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM). Through those RCM studies, I entered my compositions in national songwriting contests and won second place in Canada Music Week. I attended university for music, immersing my life in my music passion.

Highly recommend her especially during times like these. I had very limited equipment to do online lessons but she worked with what I had and I was able to learn so much!

Mage is so passionate and knowledgeable about Music and that definitely has had a contagious impact on my son. She is so good at relating and connecting with young and teen students. My son who is 16 really likes her!

Mage is very professional, knowledgeable, and is very responsive to her students. She can quickly assess a student’s needs and offer suggestions for improvement She really goes the extra mile in putting in the time to answer questions and even make videos to answer a question. If you’re making your decision based on price, don’t. Mage is a gem and worth every penny

Mage is so great! She’s very responsive and has such patience with my son. My son has never had a lesson in his life. He has never touched or played the piano before and he doesn’t know how to read music notes yet. Mage has been so great with him so far and he’s learning a lot. The different ways she teaches him to understand at his own pace is so great! Definitely would recommend her!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to talk to families and students before starting the lessons. I may ask questions such as if the student has taken lessons before, how much experience on the instrument he/she has, and what his/her goals are with lessons and musical growth. It is important for me to make sure that the lessons are a good fit for everyone–communication and rapport are both key!
