Teacher of the Month 

Our teacher of the month for December is Janice Marple! Miss Janice teaches Voice for children, teens & adults and as well she is an important member of our Front Desk Team. Janice is a superb performer and teacher, we are pleased to have her with us!Background:
I have a Masters in Voice Performance from the University of Alberta.

Favourite food:
Pizza and tacos – don’t make me choose!

Favourite thing to do:
When I’m not singing, I love to read, spoil my pet cat, and attempt recipes from the Barefoot Contessa. (Emphasis on the word ‘attempt’!)

Fun fact about me: 
In addition to my classical training, I grew up singing and listening to celtic folk music with my family.

Teaching style/philosophy: 
To me, the most exciting thing about teaching voice is that every single instrument is unique. You are the only person in the entire world with your voice! We all need to focus on healthy technique, including things like posture, breathing, and vowel placement, but the goal should always be to bring out the individual beauty of each student’s voice.

Janice has TWO spaces remaining on Saturdays. We advise contacting us NOW for this great teacher! 


Gift Certificates for Music Lessons = a great gift!
