A New Movement of “Piano/Music/Arts” Creative Instruction is Making Big Waves in Smith Creek, West Kelowna

Claudia offers a wealth of experience, knowledge, and a passion for teaching a unique piano-arts curriculum.

Whether for fun, a hobby, a music-arts therapy, music appreciation, music composition, playing piano duets, or interested in 2-piano ensembles!

Our studio offers a unique & inspiring inter-connection of the arts experience – blending piano playing with storytelling and painting or photography.

We offer piano lessons catered to the specific individual’s talent, skills, and age – to reach their full artistic potential. Playing music is all about experiencing the story and emotion behind the notes all while having FUN! Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. Music is another avenue of expression where sound is used to convey emotion and meaning.

For Hire

Claudia is looking for piano performance opportunities to perform at classy events, receptions, dinner engagements, or weddings. (Note – An acoustic piano is required to provide a professional top quality performance).



Our friendly, open-concept studio/gallery in a walk-out rancher with a garden oasis, offers a fun and exciting curriculum with a variety of inspiring activities and unique projects.

A personalized course of study stimulates musical development to help a child establish skills, nurture talents and reach their fullest potential.

A parent is very much encouraged to be an observer during the child’s lesson to help the child learn and guide with practice time during the week.

Our studio is acclaimed for its excellence in learning that inspires kids by sparking their imagination, enhancing their artistic expression and nurturing their creative thinking

The all-round music-arts curriculum opens doors to discovering new ideas, introducing valuable life skills, helping children excel in school, getting to see and listen to other young musicians, and making new friends.
