My professional background is distinguished through piano instruction at all ages from beginner to the advanced level and violin instruction from beginner to the intermediate level. In addition, teaching group lessons for over 6 years in a studio, preschool and elementary school has been a truly rewarding experience. I enjoy inspiring young children in both group and private lessons, while also preparing them for the National Guild Exam, ABRSM and Youth Focus competition.

Tracy has been teaching my daughter piano and violin for more than 2 years now. She has helped her improve in technique, form, style, and sight reading. Also, my daughter took the National Guild Examinations in piano, and with Tracy's help and guidance, she was able to pass into the preparatory(advanced) level with flying colors. When my daughter wanted to start learning violin, Tracy created a very convenient platform for her to learn the new instrument while taking a break from piano. Overall, Tracy's positive teaching style and motivational personality have really helped my daughter keep her passion for music alive.
