So, we have moved. I am so excited. We have relocated the studio and ourselves to Richibucto-Village. We were very blessed to find a property that is on the water with some woods and 8 acres. Also, wonderful hubby has a huge garage. Thank you to all my wonderful students who are continuing their lessons with me, either in person or online.
Hello to all you wonderful people.
It is the season to be happy and enjoy time with family and friends. A reminder that I will be closed the week of Christmas from December 23rd to January 3rd, 2023.
There are going to be some changes to the schedule coming in the new year and I will let you all know as soon as they are happening.
Please let me know as soon as you can of any time that you will not be available for your lessons.
It is unfortunate that the actions of some have made it difficult for the many.
Due to the number of cases rising so drastically, I have no choice but to return to online only lessons. It is very discouraging for all of us to not be able to do our lessons in person, however, I feel that I have no other option.
I trust that you are all staying safe and continuing to wear your masks and maintain social distancing. Wash your hands and be safe our there.
Missing you all.
Hello Monday, Bonjour Lundi. The sun is trying so hard to shine after the weather from yesterday. I hope that everyone is warm and dry and that we have all practiced what we are working on. Yes me included LOL. As all of my students know I will never stop learning and I will never stop bettering myself to become the best teacher I can be for my students. You all deserve a teacher who gives you their all. Let's all pray that we don't have to cancel any lessons this week for weather or illness. Get better to everyone who isn't feeling well.
Due to the freezing rain and ice pellets that we are currently getting, I am hoping that all my students stay safe and stay home. If anyone feels that they could arrive for lessons safely, please let me know. Otherwise I will see you all next week. If you wish to schedule a make up lesson for this storm cancellation please contact me at your earliest convenience and we will work out a mutually convenient time.
To all my students. I want you to do your absolute best during your lessons with me. The only thing that you could do to make it better for yourselves is to use some of these technique builders in your practice time.
1. Play your scales/gammes hands separately a few times before you play them hands together. Even if you already know how to play them, work on the crescendo's and decrescendo's first hands separate.
2. Play your scales/gammes both legato (smoothly connected) and staccato (detached) to allow you to hear the way the music could sound.
3. When you get really good at the legato/stacatto touch, try playing with your RH legato and your LH staccato and then switch it up.
4. Don't forget to play your triads and chords. These are best played immediately after the scale/gamme that corresponds to it.
Don't worry if you make mistakes while you are doing this, that is the whole point of it. These techniques will help you to grow faster in your musical journey.
And as always, ask me if you have any questions.
That is what I am here for.
September is fast approaching and I want to make sure that all my students get the time they are looking for. Please remember to get in touch with me before school starts to confirm your time slot.
Le mois de septembre approche à grands pas et je veux m'assurer que tous mes étudiants auront le temps qu'ils cherchent. N'oubliez pas de prendre contact avec moi avant le début des cours pour confirmer votre créneau horaire.
I am going on vacation from February 28th to March 10th, 2019. I want you all to know that there will be no lessons during this time. I hope that all my students have a wonderful March Break. I look forward to seeing you all when I come back, rested and ready to tackle some new pieces and techniques.
Learning a musical instrument is an excellent way to increase your brain power. We offer lessons in piano, vocal, guitar and violin. During all lessons you will learn the theory relevant to your instrument and skill level.
Please contact either Kim - 506-743-7734 or

We look forward to hearing from you.
Remember that music lessons make an excellent Christmas gift and we have Gift Certificates available for all who are interested.
