TEACHING IN HOME PIANO LESSONS
Looking to start piano lessons for yourself or your children? Don’t have time to take them to yet another after school activity? My name is Liz Craig and I am a professional piano instructor that is willing to come to you!
I have been offering in home piano lessons in Toronto for the past several years and my students love it! Their parents constantly tell me how convenient it is to have a piano teacher arrive at their front door.

I offer preparation for RCM examinations (practical and theory) as well as opportunities for performances in music festivals, competitions and community settings.

Experience: I have taught piano and music theory full time for 10 years in home, in studios in Winnipeg and Toronto as well as in a university setting.
Some kind words: "Liz's kind and patient manner engaged and encouraged our two children Liam (15) and Sidney (14) to practice and perform on the piano. She established a relaxed rapport with both of them. She has obvious high skills and talent. Her broad range of knowledge included a more modern repertoire tailored to the children's personalities that maintained their interest and allowed them to experiment freely. The convenience of her coming to our home was greatly appreciated and she was very considerate when schedules had to be adjusted. I would highly recommend Liz. She was a pleasure to have in our home and an asset to our children's enjoyment and advancement in music." - G. Kennedy
"As an adult piano student, it was a little bit difficult to start learning a new instrument and getting used to it. Even though I play the guitar, piano has a different technique and approach. Liz made the learning process fun and easy to understand and when you have a question, Liz is there to answer it. She is the type of teacher that encourages you to practice and improve always. She is awesome." - M. Hidalgo
