- Teaches students:
- Females 5+, males 5 to 12 and special needs
- Teaching since:
My background as a Kindergarten teacher, and classically trained pianist with the Toronto Conservatory of Music, qualifies me to teach students of all ages, especially ages 4 through 10. I use various piano methods - Faber, Bastien, Alfred to name a few - based on the personality, interest and ability of the student.
I am the director of a ukulele ensemble and provide private ukulele lessons to beginner and intermediate levels.
Many references are available upon request.
Private instruction at the student's home. Concentration on music theory & technique.
Instructor was very knowledgeable and the quality of the time spent with her very much enriched my experience with the ukelele.
Barbara is patient, fun and extremely knowledgeable. Whether it's a group or one-on-one she makes learning a pleasure.
Barbara Weiss is a wonderful teacher. Each session Barbara is prepared to challenge me and make me a better ukulele player. She brings joy to learning. Barbara has the ability to make music theory understandable. I love our time together!
I had been playing the uke for a few years before I started working with Barbara. I was a "chord memorizer" who lacked theory. Barbara is patient, listens, is extremely knowledgeable and explains and demonstrates in a way that even I can understand. She has made a huge difference in my playing ability and in my understanding of music.+ Read More
Barbara has worked with our daughter since she was five. She did a wonderful job in building my daughter's music knowledge and skill with playing the piano.
I appreciate that she took extra time to work with our younger daughter as well. Barbara put together some wonderful recitals for the kids she taught and it was always enjoyable and light hearted.
Far from the lengthy and, frankly, boring recitals that I have been subjected, I looked forward to the recitals that Barbara planned.
Barbara has a wealth of knowledge not to mention a wealth supplies such as papers, pens, markers, pencils, stickers, a variety of decorative scissors etc. She is a patient teacher who makes learning fun. I recommend her highly!
