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. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies (Vancouver Island University) and went on to achieve my Master’s of Fine Arts in Music (California Institute of the Arts). I love teaching all ages for vocals, guitar, piano, and bass. I can also help you with home recording and song composition.

Singing Lessons

Mage was professional and created homework to practice based on the goals I set. She provided structure when I didn't have experience with singing lessons. A pleasure to work with!

Piano Lessons

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!

Piano Lessons

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!

Guitar Lessons

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

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Registration Fee – For NEW students a $20 non-refundable registration fee applies to the first invoice. For returning students who have not had a lesson in the last 30 days the registration fee applies again. The registration fee is applied in addition to the first month of lessons. *MONTHLY RATE PLANS* Lessons are billed monthly and available in the following packages with recurring private lessons being held weekly in accordance with the studio calendar. 44 live lessons are held per year along with 11 group workshops and recitals. In addition, assessments are made in between the live lessons to ensure a thorough learning experience. A) Private Lessons Packages B) Group Lessons Packages C) Ongoing Support Packages A) Private Lessons Packages: • Include private LIVE* private Zoom video conference lessons each month. • Access to a group class in certain months. • Include evaluations of practice, progress, and assignments in between each live lesson. • Access to apps and books that are needed as part of the curriculum. B) Group Lessons Packages • Includes LIVE* group lessons each month. • Includes evaluations of practice, progress, and assignments in between each live lesson. • Access to apps and books that are needed as part of the curriculum. C) Ongoing Support Packages The Ongoing Support package allows the student to study asynchronously with a private teacher. This allows efficient use of both parties’ time. Videos are exchanged in MUCH higher quality than during a live stream or videoconferencing session. Longer duration packages are typically used for intermediate/advanced students and students that are studying more than one instrument. A 15-minute consultation is available if you have questions or if you need device setup for online lessons (live through Zoom video conferencing software). GROUP lessons and ONLINE TEACHER TRAINING are available; please inquire about pricing.

  • 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!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
