Kerry is a trained classical pianist (and a lover of music) who offers classical piano lessons with technical training, popular music instruction (or a little of both) as well as Theory instruction. Read below to learn more about each type of lesson.
Classical Piano Instruction
Kerry offers weekly lessons to students of all ages. Students will have the opportunity to perform in local festivals and complete examinations at their grade level. A technical portion (scales, ear training, etc.) will be included in each lesson. Kerry has led her students to achieve First Class Honours on Royal Conservatory of Music exams.
Popular Music Piano Instruction
Are you interested in learning something like Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen or maybe Shallow from the movie, A Star Is Born? Then, these lessons are for you! Kerry will structure your lesson to learn popular songs of your choice. Some basic music knowledge is required first but Kerry can help you with that too!
Learning theory is like understanding the rules of any language. Theory goes hand in hand with being a skilled musician and understanding the rules of music. Theory lessons are offered to all piano students. Kerry will guide you through your learning and help you prepare for RCM exams in Theory.
Due to COVID-19, Kerry's Keys Piano Studio is currently only offering ONLINE lessons.
