"I have enormous respect for Andrea's talent, knowledge and ingenuity as a teacher. She cares deeply for her students and is thoroughly professional, kind, motivating and makes every lesson interesting and constructive. Her manner and style of teaching contribute to her ability to relate to students and her love of music is contagious!"
M Mus Artistic Director, Kelowna Community Music School
" I first met Andrea in the spring of 2001, when I engaged her services, based on excellent professional recommendations, as a piano festival adjudicator for the Chancellor Music Festival. In her first year at our festival, Andrea excelled in a high standard of musical professionalism, and a positive, encouraging disposition to her evaluations of the musicians entering our event.Since then, Andrea has returned to adjudicate many times.
Andrea delivered an excellent balance of encouragement and expectation. I highly recommend Andrea as an ethical and competent professional who consistently achieves superior results in the field of music education and adjudication.
Chancellor Music Festival Chairperson
"During the years that I worked with Andrea I found her to be a most gifted creative musician whose passion for music and piano teaching continues to grow by the day. Unlike most students who have achieved their RCM Diploma, Andrea continued her lessons with me not only to further develop her own playing, but also to broaden her knowledge regarding interpretation of piano repertoire for advanced pianists.
Andrea's genuine love of music has attracted a large class of piano students and she will be sadly missed by her enthusiastic pupils when she moves to Kelowna this summer. My very best wishes go out to Andrea and her new students"
