My daughter absolutely loves her piano lessons. Vanessa's style of teaching is fun and keeps the attention of my very active child. The transition in to online lessons has been easy and my daughter enjoys it just as much as going to her lessons. I'm not sure who was excited more, my daughter or I when she completed her first book in only a few months!! The confidence it has given my daughter is amazing and she was so proud when she did her first recital three months after joining!

Jenny

Vanessa is a piano teacher devoted to music education, utilizing fun, creativity, and constant innovation over time. I love her focus on self motivation and the enjoyment of music! I highly recommend her.

Nicoleta Mitroi

I am impressed by Miss Vanessa's unique way of teaching kid's piano. Her teaching method is thorough, instructive, and fun which helps build a solid foundation for kids to develop their interests and skills in playing piano. My son loves playing piano. I would highly recommend her. She's one of a kind!

Chris Gass

Our kids have been taking lessons at Rektor piano for 4 months now and I'm impressed with what they have learned so far. This is their first experience with playing the piano and Vanessa has them both progressing very quickly. We couldn't be happier.

Wendy Meades

My girls both love taking lessons from Vanessa. She uses all kinds of different ways to keep the kids motivated and they always leave their lessons with a smile on their faces! I just feel so blessed to have found such a great teacher.

My two daughters, ages 5 and 7, started taking piano lessons this past Fall. My youngest daughter was reluctant at first however with some encouragement she now practices at home without prompting and enjoys it immensely! Vanessa is extremely talented and her enthusiasm is contagious. I would definitely recommend anyone who is brand new to piano or a seasoned player.

Amar

My 5yr old daughter started piano lessons with Vanessa a few months ago and she loves it! Vanessa is so good with kids and she makes the lessons fun. I highly recommend Rektor Studios, I’m so happy we found her!

KIDS LOVE MUSIC...

Singing, clapping and dancing are natural childhood activities, and an integral part of how children think, learn and express themselves.

Yet, parents often worry that their child will hate music lessons.  They wonder if the structure and discipline of lessons will rob their child of that natural love of music.

At Rektor Piano Studio, we make learning to play music as natural and full of enjoyment as learning to walk and talk.

OUR STUDENTS LOVE THEIR PIANO LESSONS! WHY?

&bull They play interesting, creative music from the very first lesson!

They learn and review new concepts through interactive games and activities

they compose and improvise their own music regularly, even the beginners

KIDS WHO LOVE THEIR PIANO LESSONS:

  • Leave with a smile each week
  • Stop by their piano several times during the week to try out their songs
  • Are excited to share their music with parents and friends

DO YOU WANT THIS FOR YOUR CHILD?

. . . MORE than you imagined!

what is this

Kids who study the piano learn so much more than just how to play the piano!
Here are some hidden benefits that not many people think about when they start piano lessons:

PATIENCE

Playing music over and over again to perfect the smallest details is a wonderful way to cultivate patience.

PROBLEM SOLVING

The problem-solving situations you encounter when you learn music will help you when you face obstacles in your life.

PERSEVERENCE

The delayed gratification inherent in the process of learning music is beneficial to many situations in life.

CREATIVITY

The creativity that you develop as you express yourself through music will shine out in other areas of your life as well.

THINKING ON THE SPOT

Playing music requires you to make split-second decisions over and over, which can help you react to the curveballs that life throws at you.

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Many musicians discover that playing music becomes a helpful outlet when dealing with stress and other difficult situations.

CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF

Every time you start and finish a new song you have set and hit a goal.  This continual success builds confidence that caries over into other areas of life.

BETTER RESPONSE TO CRITIQUE

Positively learning from critiques instead of getting defensive becomes a skill that students will take into school, work and life.

Invoices are automatically paid on the 1st of each month by the card on file only. This way, we can focus on making music together and you'll never have to worry about forgetting or late fees!

Yes, I will give you all the lesson books you need when you come for the first lesson so that you are ready to go and don't need to search for anything!

You must have either an acoustic piano or a digital piano with 88 fully-weighted keys and a bench with sustain pedal. You'll need your lesson books (which we provide) and a pencil. You'll also need time in your schedule to devote to lessons and practicing.

Pricing information is found on the Lessons page.

ABOUT LESSONS

Yes. The Intro Lesson allows you to check out the studio, get your questions answered, and take a sample lesson, so you can see if this is the studio for you.

It also allows me to get to know you better so I can make design the right program for you, and make sure that you learn the music that interests you the most.

No matter your skill level, every new student takes an Intro Lesson.

All the heavy lifting of practice is completed in the lesson. Students actually learn all of their songs during their lesson, where they have access to their teacher for help! This means that all they have to do during the week is review what they already know.

Lab practice is so effective, even kids who don't have time to practice during the week make faster progress in this format than in traditional one-on-one lessons! So imagine what happens when kids practice at home too!

Ideally, home practice should take place at least 4-5 days each week. Beginners should spend 10-15 minutes playing through their songs. As they learn longer and more complicated songs, practice will begin to take longer, up to 30 minutes each day.

Life happens - we get it!

Unlike most piano studios, we allow students to reschedule their lessons. Lessons cancelled with 24 hours' notice are issued a "makeup credit" which can be used to join another class at your convenience.

Yes - all core lesson books are supplied, as well as much supplemental music including Disney and movie music, holiday favourites, online music subscriptions and MUCH MORE.

Every student is unique, with different goals, interests and motivation.

Everyone learns the basics from their lesson books, but you get to pick your supplemental music!
