...Now that I've retired, I'm known as Ali, the founder of Alicat Music and calmdown.ca

I have degrees in Education, Music, and Psychology and have taught piano privately for over 30 years. As well, I am a certified Yoga Instructor, Strategy Coach and Energy Practitioner. I incorporate all of my gifts and talents when creating well-rounded programs for groups.

As of August 2020, a virtual summer music & movement camp is being offered. It will include singing, moving, meditation and  more! Moving forward, similar programs will be offered from time to time throughout the school year.

All year round, I offer virtual piano lessons to kids and adults which is calming for my students in these changing times. It is a whole brain activity that enhances one's life in a myriad of ways. 


Weekly Piano Lessons

Alison has been teaching me piano for almost two years now and is helping me transfer my knowledge of music from another instrument to piano. While my fingers were initially slower than my brain, she has helped me to really move along quickly. I enjoy the lessons and I'm pleased with the progress I'm making.
