We are very thankful to have had Doreen Laing as the piano teacher for our children over the past four years. She has a passion for teaching and a drive for excellence that brings out the best in her students. They have numerous opportunities to play in public throughout the year, and Doreen’s attention to detail translates into polished performances every time.
She also keeps it fun by encouraging duets and trios, and actively promoting camaraderie between her students. Because of her extensive knowledge of music, her students are able to experience success whenever they take Royal Conservatory exams.
Doreen ensures that the children also progress in theory. She tailors her teaching to the individual gifts of the child, and challenges each of them to play to their full potential. Her skill as a teacher can be seen in her ability to reach all ages.
We consider it a privilege for our children to study under her.
