Instructor's Profile:

George studied music in England at the London College of Music where he attained his Graduate Diploma in Music Teaching (piano) as well as his Associate Diploma in Performance (piano). He studied piano under Professor Robin Stone at the LCM, and harpsichord under Professor Thurston Dart of King's College, London University. George has performed with the Academy of St. Martin's in the Field orchestra, and the Stuttgart University orchestra. George also conducted The London College of Music orchestra in the performances of many of J.S. Bach's works - notably the Brandenberg Concertos.

George has accumulated 21 years of successful piano teaching experience in Beginner to Diploma levels in both England and northern British Columbia, with many successful Festival student entries. He encourages his students to attain at least a Grade a year with the RCM or TCM. George also encourages his students to go to concerts locally as well as participate in School and local music programs.

George is available to offer piano and theory instruction -  IN THE SAFETY AND PRIVACY OF YOUR HOME. George is also an experienced church organist and is familiar with many of the Liturgies of General, Funeral and Wedding services for different denominations. He is available - with notice - to play at wedding, funeral and morning/evening services in the Lower Mainland.

His background in music and piano education, as well as in the RCM and TCM certificate programs, gives him the special skills and insights needed to provide a wide variety of music styles and interpretation methods to his students. George believes that motivation comes from setting high standards in performance and practice, as well as in enjoying and deeply appreciating the emotional language of music through piano.
