I highly recommend 88Keys. My daughter has been attending piano classes there for the past four years and she has learned so much! They offer exceptional group classes and the children learn to play both solo pieces and as part of a group. My daughter has learned amazing hand coordination and her confidence in playing has also improved as the children are encouraged to be creative with their music. Her teacher, Ms. Alondra, takes time to encourage each child and give immediate feedback as they play. My daughter's confidence in playing has been boosted tremendously because of her. As a school, I am also impressed at how fast classes went online during this very challenging time during the pandemic. They have always been implementing safety for the in-person classes and have always had the online option available for the live classes. Thank you to 88Keys!
Ms. Nora takes great pride in her teaching career. As a Kindermusik educator, she has over 10 years’ experience in teaching music and movement to young students ranging in age from babies to preschoolers. Through her teaching methods, Ms. Nora strives to capture and nurture a child’s desire for language, the body’s urge to move, the brain’s attention to pattern and the voice’s response to sounds. She takes the same approach when it comes to teaching piano, voice and theory. In the over 15 years of private instruction to students ranging in age from 4 to adulthood, Ms. Nora’s main focus has been to offer a well-rounded musical start, which will lead to a lifelong love and appreciation for music. Her students have successfully completed Royal Conservatory Examinations, receiving First Class Honours with Distinction.
