Welcome to Kitsilano Piano Studio

I’m Jennifer West, pianist, educator, and Royal Conservatory of Music Theory/History prep specialist in the Vancouver BC region. Read more here about how I can help you or your child discover the joy of music. Below I have included some important sections about the benefits of piano lessons, my teaching philosophy, and some courses I teach. I can’t wait to meet you whether it be your first piano lessons or you’re a seasoned master!

Teaching Philosophy

A lot of emotions arise when searching for the right piano teacher. Excitement, nervousness, or uncertainty are often coupled with the one big question: “will the student find joy in this process?”

Students experience joy when they are engaged, when their talents are appreciated, and when they are given opportunities to navigate their own growth. Given space and influence from a master, they will be able to learn from their experience.  At Kitsilano Piano Studio, we are committed to deepening the students’ lifelong love of music.  Each student has different needs and we seek to honour their individual musical journeys by creating a positive learning environment in our piano lessons.
