Welcome

Offering Lessons in Carillon, Organ, and Theory

I have been playing the 50 bell Exhibition Place Carillon since March 2016. Normally I play it on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12 to 1 pm. However, the carillon tower is being inspected for the integrity of the structure so I can’t play it until the inspection is complete.

Lessons

Carillon lessons are taught on the mechanical keyboard of the 50 bell carillon at the Exhibition Place. The carillon is located southeast of the Dufferin gate just north of the band shell.  It is one of only 11 carillons in all of Canada.

Organ and theory lessons are also available.

I teach all subjects and all levels of theory.
