"Candace is an amazing piano teacher and I’m so thankful I had the chance to learn from her for over 5 years. She helped me develop a much stronger sound and pushed me to develop good technique. Candace worked with me to successfully prepare for both my grade 9 and 10 RCM exams, as well as for my audition at the UofM. She gave me many performance opportunities like festivals, masterclasses and recitals, which I had never participated in before studying with her. The skills I developed with Candace were crucial to my acceptance at the faculty and I will always be grateful for the time I spent learning from her."

"Candace is such a fantastic teacher!! Through the years she has continued to go far and beyond for myself and each of her students, not only in teaching important fundamental techniques to help strengthen and expand our knowledge base and physical playing skills, but also in teaching us different creative ways of bringing each piece of music to life in our own way! I really love the way she teaches new techniques and different ways of learning through an array of perspectives and styles that result in making playing easier, more fluid, and all in all more creatively exciting!"
