I started private guitar lessons when I was seven years old, living in a small town in northern British Columbia.
I love all genres of music, and am always excited to be introduced to new artists and musical styles that I haven’t heard before.
When teaching, I like to focus less on broad curriculum and more on individual students’ needs. Brad Heintzman first discovered his love of music at the age of five when he started taking piano lessons. In the last 20 years Brad has taught piano, musical theatre classes and voice at The Citadel Theatre, Edmonton Musical Theatre, Victoria School and privately.
Brad’s two children are currently in their fourth year studying piano in the Suzuki program. Teacher training courses completed include Every Child Can, Violin Book 1, Piano Book 1 (Jane Reed), and 2 (Merlin Thompson), and Suzuki Principles in Action. Gail completed her Book 1 and 2 teacher training at the Idaho Suzuki Institute with Rae Kate Shen. Alla Rekhson studied music and received her Bachelor of Music degree from the music college of Gomel, Belarus, and her Master of Music degree in the Russian State Conservatory. Nancy Thornhill first started teaching Suzuki Piano in 1979 after attending a summer workshop at Queens University. From 1996 to 2008, she lived in Dubai in the Middle East where she taught music full time at an international school. In addition to teaching, Eleanor accompanies soloists, conducts and accompanies choirs, plays for her church and other occasions such as weddings. Ken Zeller began music training at age four and developed a love of learning music including piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet and percussion.
Jim Peterson, a Sideman, band leader, composer, arranger and music teacher with over 25 years experience playing reed instruments and guitar.
A multifaceted musician, Jim has collaborated with members of such bands as Paul Jackson with Herbie Hancock, John Evans with Tori Amos and Herb Hardestly with Fats Domino.
Though she attended Brown University with the full intent of becoming a lawyer, music remained prominent in her extracurricular life. She also tells McPartland about the slightly adversarial beginning to her relationship with the man who is now her husband, jazz bassist Christian McBride.


Her swing on that tune recalls Carmen McRae, an artist she cites as an important influence. We build long lasting relationships with our students training and guiding them through technique, repertoire and performance.
For the curious mind that has always dreamed about playing an instrument or singing classes but has not yet begun the journey. I continued taking lessons and playing in bands all the way through high school, then moved to Edmonton to attend Grant MacEwan.
I grew up with a lot of classic rock and blues, and I studied classical guitar for several years before entering the more jazz-based program at MacEwan. My goal is to inspire a life-long love of music in my students, and to teach them essential theory and technique in a way that’s still fun, accessible and relevant to their own musical tastes.

I graduated from their music program in 2008 and have been writing and performing original music ever since. My own music ranges from heavy punk-infused rock to mellow acoustic folk, and everything in between. Clarice Moellering introduced her to the Suzuki method and Ruth received her first training through her. After working three years full-time with the Cairo Symphony Orchestra in Egypt, she joined the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra as a casual violinist.


Eleanor regularly attends the Suzuki summer institutes at Mount Royal College in Calgary and has participated in a workshop with Dr. Eleanor hopes to empower each student, build up the whole person and instill a life-long appreciation of music.

Graduates receive a Certificate of Achievement in Suzuki Piano Pedagogy and are prepared for a career in Suzuki piano instruction. Born and raised in the small town of Bonnyville, AB, I grew up in a very musical family with a wide variety of musical tastes, so I was always influenced by all sorts of  genres (R&B, Soul, Hiphop, Rock, Blues, Country and many more).
I was so excited about it, I decided to start working on a full-length album as well which will be released in the Fall of 2013. If your schedule doesn’t allow for a regular lesson time check out our Design Drop In packages where you can buy one to 10 lessons and use them within the year.
You will find courses that are short term as well as year round programs, or our Design Drop In Lessons. I’ve released several albums with various bands, toured the country, and I was even awarded a recording grant by the Edmonton Arts Council in 2011.
