88 Keys is an exceptionally well run studio with excellent staff and qualified instructors who can easily adapt to a student’s learning style. As an adult learner with no musical background, I have been able to progress in my quest to learn piano at my own pace in a supportive and nurturing environment for the last three+ years. The studio pivoted quickly to online lessons at the start of the pandemic and has implemented safety measures making it possible for students to safely continue their lessons online or in-person. If you are a parent or an adult learner seeking lessons for your child or yourself, I would strongly recommend 88 Keys Music School.
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.
