and rarely teach those from the Baroque period.

Royal Conservatory (ARCT), who concentrates on the correct technique, body and hand position.
My approach to teaching is technical, concentrating on correct posture as well as teaching students
musicality, expression and imagination. Introduction of the standard Classical piano repertoire is almost
immediate. The books I use for young beginners include a combination of ABC piano training by
Boris Berlin and exercises, as well as various pieces from the Royal Conservatory Repertoire,
as well as different selections that fit each student's needs.

I'm Nick Maclean and I am a piano teacher, composer, performer and band leader. I hold a Masters of Jazz
Performance from the University of Toronto and a Bachelors of Music from Humber College. I teach
students of all ages and levels of proficiency. I've been teaching privately for many years. I also teach at
several lesson studios around the city and hold jazz improvisation masterclasses in various high schools
around the GTA and in the wider Ontario region. Each of my students gets a personally tailored curriculum
designed to target their weaknesses and allow them to pursue music that they find fun and interesting.
I teach all styles and genres although I personally specialize in jazz. I have very affordable rates and
I teach out of my downtown studio.

Blake has been teaching piano for over 9 years to students as young as 5, as well as advanced pupils
preparing for post-secondary auditions. My approach to teaching piano is to balance theory and technique
into the lessons as seamlessly as possible so that the lesson remains fun throughout. My students always
learn music specific to their taste. I always ask about their musical preference, and if they aren't quite sure
what that is, I help them figure it out. I have an Honours Degree in music (piano major) from Humber
College, and have taught at teaching studios and as a high school teacher's assistant for several years.
Styles range from classical to jazz and blues.

|Marcel Au Coin
Kind, patient teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching in Toronto offering lessons in the comfort of
your own home. I have an extensive background in classical, jazz and popular music and am quite
comfortable teaching any of these styles. My personal philosophy is that playing the piano above all else
should be enjoyable. For each person that can mean something different in terms of what they would like to
learn. I try to tailor lessons to the individual students’ needs and interests (including arranging music for
them) while still providing them with the fundamentals of piano playing (reading music, proper technique).
