Must Love Music is for people who LOVE music and secretly (or not so secretly) yearn for the ability to just sit down at a piano and play with confidence.
Whether that is written songs, songs they are listening to or exploring new styles, they get tools they need to develop a lifelong love of music.
NOTE: While Alberta has a provincial health emergency, all lessons & activities have been moved online for the safety of students & their families.
A quick peek into lessons
Students will not just be at the piano playing songs. We will be moving, singing, actively listening and experimenting.
Students will be asked questions to guide their learning so they can have a deeper understanding of concepts.
And, students do all of this in their own homes.
Yes! Ms. Rosemarie comes to your home each week.
The students in our studio
Must Love Music specializes in teaching children differently.
Preschool & Kindergarten
Many parents worry that their child may not have the attention span necessary for piano lessons. That is not a worry at Must Love Music!
Students as young as 3-years old have the chance to explore in a hands-on manner each & every class.
Little ones have the opportunity to move often and use play as a means to learning.
Get ready for a lot of laughs and your child saying, “I HAVE to show you this!”
Special Needs Students
Your child is unique and that is celebrated in our studio!
My background in special needs education has greatly influenced my philosophy of teaching.
IPP’s, growth plans, and educational psychology evaluations are all things that I have been a part of in the past.
I will work with your family and your child’s team to best support his or her learning.
Your child wants to have a say in their learning. And, that is a good thing!
Between choosing his or her own music, lab time (who can resist apps), and fun warm-ups , your child won’t even realize he or she is doing a lot of learning both in and out of lessons!
Many of the teen students in Must Love Music are part of other extra-curricular activities. This gives them a diverse range of activities each week.
But, it can also lead to your teen feeling like there is too much to do and not enough time.
For students who have previous piano lesson experience, Must Love Music offers flipped programming. Practice happens DURING lessons. Rather than mandatory practice during the week.
Progress will be slower, but it allows students who want to still take piano lessons to stay. Rather than ending an activity they love.
While both exams and festivals can be wonderful learning opportunities, they are not the main focus at Must Love Music.
If you are looking for programming that is based on yearly exams or multiple annual festivals, there are other wonderful teachers in this city that have this focus.
You deserve to have the piano lesson experience that works best for you and your family.
My hope for both kids was/is to find something they enjoy doing. In this case, to discover a love for playing music. You did amazing. My kids have grown a lot under your patience and care and direction.
In-Home Online Piano Lessons
Why are so many music programs the same for everyone? Not everyone learns the same.
You have your own interests and goals. These should be included in what you do in your lesson time.
Must Love Music serves the communities in NW or NE (Skyview Ranch & north) Calgary.
While Alberta has a provincial health emergency, all lessons & activities have been moved online for the safety of students & their families.
