Welcome

Offering Lessons in Carillon, Organ, and Theory

Gerald feels honoured to play the 54 bell carillon at the historic Metropolitan United Church of Toronto, where he plays one of only 11 carillons in Canada for services, weddings and special events. You’ll hear him pealing the bells every Sunday morning from 10:30 to 11 am and most weekdays in the early afternoon.


“Love Dreams No. 3″ by Franz Liszt

Lessons

Carillon lessons are taught on the practice and playing keyboards of the 54 bell carillon at the Metropolitan United Church (north-west corner of Queen and Church streets), 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.
