Michelle's Music Story
Michelle MacArthur has been enjoying music for as long as she can remember and playing the piano since she was 7. In addition to the piano, she learned to play the guitar, ukulele, recorder, clarinet, handbells, and many rhythm instruments. Michelle did her piano training through the Royal Conservatory of Music (Piano) and enhanced her music education by becoming a Certified Music For Young Children Teacher in 1997 after attending university. She has been teaching music for 30 years and absolutely loves her job! Michelle's Music (Piano) Studio is located in Kelowna on Dilworth Mountain. She advocates for music education and believes that exposing children to music from an early age is essential. Michelle feels strongly that a child is given the opportunity to learn an instrument at a young age -- her bias is the piano as it gives a wonderful basis for any instrument. Her heart is that children develop a love for music and a healthy outlet that will serve them a lifetime of expression and enjoyment. Her goal is that her students leave their lessons feeling confident and inspired to learn.
I have wanted to learn to play the piano for years and finally took a huge personal risk and signed up for a mini lesson with Michelle. After my first lesson I signed up to be a committed student! Michelle made my fears and anxiety disappear immediately by her warm and fun approach. She followed my lead and encouraged me, as I exposed my vulnerability, with care and kindness. My piano lesson day is my favourite day of the week! She is so knowledgeable and is incredibly honouring of the adult learner. I would highly recommend anyone, from beginner to wanting to jump back in, to reach out to Michelle!
Michelle is such a wonderful music teacher. Our daughter is having so much fun learning to play the piano. We are amazed at how quickly we can see progress. Michelle provides a very safe and encouraging learning environment for her students in a beautiful setting with grand piano. It has been such a joy to see our daughter grow a love for music from the lessons with Michelle. Our whole family is enjoying the benefits of more music in our home.
Michelle is the best piano teacher around! Both of my children have learned so much from her.
Michelle is patient and kind, student's individualities are considered as the lessons are tailored to to suit them. And she is super knowledgeable! Michelle has a beautiful home and grand piano, and makes you feel so welcome!
There is no one better!
Your dream of playing piano is possible!
Michelle's Music (Piano) Studio provides a safe learning environment where students feel comfortable to take risks.
My goal is to meet students where they are at and move them forward on their musical learning continuum. Let's play piano!
