Emma has enjoyed teaching piano and voice for over six years. She holds an undergraduate degree in classical piano from the University of Toronto (2019), and is currently studying with world-renowned performer Jarred Dunn. She has studied the Alexander Technique and Taubman Technique, which train awareness of and efficient movement in the body while singing or at the piano, and Emma has completed Level I / II / III of the Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method (Summer 2020), and teaches voice guided by their principles.
Emma enjoys working with students of all ages. Her approach to teaching is comprehensive, using singing, movement, composition, improvisation, reading, and listening to develop strong, enduring musical and life skills in each student. She believes exposure to a wide variety of music is important and uses classical, jazz, folk, musical theatre, and pop styles in her teaching. She encourages natural, healthy technique for the purpose of developing the student’s musical expression. Emma nurtures healthy, trusting, patient teacher/student relationships, understanding the vulnerability involved in music sharing.
