After over 40 years of teaching at the Beckett School, I find myself enjoying teaching even more. I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance at Wilfrid Laurier University in 1982 under the direction of Garth Beckett. A teacher at the Beckett School since its opening in 1980, I have enjoyed a diverse career as a piano teacher, a music director for theatre, accompanist, church organist, adjudicator and arranger. I also enjoy teaching students how to play from lead charts of any style, jazz rock, etc. Currently, together with Dan Beacock, I am putting the 12-piece rock band, Stealing Dan, back together and playing, of course, the music of the celebrated band Steely Dan.
I have always enjoyed teaching, and after many years at the Beckett School at Laurier I have come to enjoy it even more.
