Hello, my name is Aria. It's nice to meet you!
I am a professional music instructor with 6 years of teaching experience and RCM 10 Certification. Currently, I offer piano lessons at my teaching studio in Toronto, Ontario.
I have experience teaching music to all ages, including children, youth, adults, and seniors. I enjoy all types of music, especially classical, jazz, and pop.
If you would like to learn classical piano, music theory, popular music, or chords and composition, please call to book an appointment in English or Mandarin.
My Musical Background
My interest in music started at the age of nine.
Bright eyed and happy-go-lucky, I attended school on a typical day in June. As the school year was coming to an end, I was excited to finally start summer vacation. As everyone grew restless and chattered energetically towards the end of the day, my music teacher arrived in my classroom unexpectedly. The classroom quickly became silent, and with a stern expression she called out my name, "Aria, can I please speak to you privately for a moment?"
Thoughts raced in my head as I pondered my life decisions.
Oh God, am I in trouble?
She looked at me with a twinkle in her eye and asked me, "Would you like to learn a musical instrument and join our school band?" Feeling relieved, still a little scared, but mostly confused, I responded, "I don't know what that is. But OKAY, as long as I'm not in trouble." She smiled and said, "Perfect. Come by the music class on Wednesday last period, and pick out your instrument then."
And so, my journey began, taking up trumpet and eventually learning piano. Over time, I gained 7 years of experience playing the Trumpet, and 10 years playing the Piano. I also dabbled in Guitar, Voice, Violin, and Saxophone for personal interest.
Why Learn Music?
Music is a great hobby for people of all ages and backgrounds. It is a form of self-expression that can help to reduce stress. Learning a musical instrument can help with increasing the capacity of our memory, enhancing our coordination, and sharpening our concentration. In addition, it teaches you perseverance and discipline, reduces stage fright, and creates a sense of achievement.
