David’s teaching philosophy is about fun and learning. Here’s what he has to say about taking piano lessons:

Each student’s learning direction is based on their needs and desires. After an discussion with the child and family we set realistic goals, make a plan and the fun begins. I support students to make the connection between piano practice and pleasure. Piano lessons are professional, supportive, enthusiastic, and guilt-free.

Bass and Guitar Music Lessons in Toronto

Nikku Nayar is a professional music educator, performer and transcriber who attended York University and has played and toured with many of Toronto’s top musicians. An overview of his career and examples of his work can be found at

Nikku has maintained an active guitar and electric bass teaching practice for the past 15 years, working in all styles from classic rock through Motown/R&B funk and soul and up to today’s pop. Of his approach, he says, “One-on-one lessons allow the teacher to adapt traditional methods and tailor sessions for each student individually. It’s fine to just teach out of a book, but it’s better to ‘be the method’. I make sure to find out what each student is really interested in. Then I create individualized lesson plans and bring fun repertoire to the lesson.  I also make sure to fulfill technical requirements while allowing for maximum engagement and fun factor!”

Check out Nikku’s catalog of hundreds of transcribed songs for bass and guitar!

Nikku can be contacted through his website or at 416-908-3161.

Fiddle Music Lessons on Toronto and Hamilton

Celina Marie is available for private or group fiddle, violin, viola, mandolin and piano lessons at Celina’s String Studio, Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario. She is also a fully certified Mark O’Connor Method Teacher. She is also available for skype lessons too! You can see Celina’s website and check out all she has to offer to teach your child how to learn how to play the fiddle.

Here’s what Celina has to say about music and teaching:

Music plays an important part in an individual’s education as well as their own self-expression. A music educator’s responsibility is to provide well-prepared, quality instruction to help each student realize his or her own individual potential and abilities. It is Celina’s String Studio’s belief that every student, no matter what challenges they are faced with, benefits from music instruction.

Music itself is a unique discipline. It can integrate many other subjects and disciplines such as science, math, and history into its curriculum. As a result, it can provide students with a more well rounded and holistic education. Many other invaluable life lessons can be taught and fostered through music instruction:

  • self-discipline
  • teamwork
  • cooperation
  • tolerance
  • respect
  • the building of independent and critical thinking skills.

Through my education, love, and passion for music, my goal is to inspire students and to help them realize their great potential, all while having fun at the same time.
