Esther is a registered member of the Alberta Registered Music Teacher's Association (ARMTA) and Alberta Piano Teacher's Association (APTA), and is dedicated to provide high-quality instruction in music and piano education. At Esther's Piano Explorers we develop the well-rounded musician to have strong literacy and musicianship skills. Lessons will include the study of music of all genres and musical periods. All students will study works of Canadian composers and train in classical piano technique, which is the foundation to finger agility and proficiency at the instrument for any style of music. Our priority is for students to walk home with a strong foundation, and essential practice tools to be life-long, independent learners of music.

"My 3 boys have been taking piano lessons for the last 6 years and we recently switched over to Esther in the Fall of 2020. Esther is a wonderful piano teacher and I can’t rave enough about how much time and effort she puts into her students and preparation for them. Over the year she has gotten to know each of my boy’s needs and interests and has adapted her teaching methods and the practice pieces to suit each of them. I can’t say enough great things about Esther’s Piano Explorers and we are looking forward to continuing our piano lessons with her."
