I'm a piano teacher with 20 years of teaching experience. I'm a RCM Certified Advanced Specialist in Piano, and I'm also an Associate of the London College of Music (at the University of West London).
I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels, both in-person and virtually. I teach all levels a comprehensive classical training, but I also work with students who wish to learn a non-classical curriculum. I'm well versed in using technology for virtual lessons, adapting to an online space while maintaining an engaged and fun lesson environment. My philosophy is flexibility in teaching, instilling confidence and empowerment in my students. I remain an active Classical pianist performing at various venues from season to season.

Although we didn't originally find Kelley via Bark, he's by far the best piano teacher our daughter has had; WAY better than our previous 2 teachers who taught in-person. Kelley has a way of connecting, engaging, and helping our daughter feel confident in her capabilities like no other teachers had before. Highly recommend him for virtual piano lessons. More...
Simply a fantastic teacher! Thanks for the awesome online lessons you offer to our kids. We searched for a long time to find someone qualified, experienced, and fun. Glad we found you :)
I can't say enough good things about our lessons with Kelley. We're in Nova Scotia and before the pandemic never would have thought to do online lessons, but Kelley's lessons are so great for our son. Kelley is knowledgeable, experienced, and knows how to connect with kids. We've seen so much progress in our son since starting lessons with Kelley. Thank you for being such a dedicated teacher. Highly recommend him. More...
I look for piano teacher for a long time and I am happy I find Kelley. He is patient, caring, and a good teacher for my son. My son did RCM online exam recently and recieved 93% and the examiner comments congratulated him on excellent technique and artistic playing. Thank you Kelley More...

We started lessons online with Kelley last Spring during the pandemic as we couldn't find an experienced and right teacher for our daughter. He is a kind, patient, and engaging teacher and although he is halfway across the country, we are so pleased to find him. I am always amazed at how he can keep a child engaged and interested even online. We have no reservations about recommending Kelley as an online piano teacher. More...
We would happily recommend Kelley to anyone for online piano lessons. Thanks for all the hard work you put in to make online lessons fun and run smoothly :)

Our piano lessons are fantastic and tailored to the needs, interest, and skill-level and goals for each of our kids. Thank you Teacher Kelley. Highly recommend.
Kelley is one accomplished teacher. Although he may look young, he has decades of experience and a Certified Advanced Specialist in Piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. I think he's also accredited in the UK as well. He brings so much knowledge and enthusiasm. It's probably why his studio is so full and he's so in demand. Get a spot, even if it's virtual lessons, if you can - you won't regret it! More...
Kelley is an amazing pianist and teacher. Both me and my daughter take online lessons from him. As an adult student, Kelley is great at explaining the theory behind what I play, and our lessons are so fun it's always full of laughs! I know my daughter also looks forward to seeing Kelley weekly. Although we don't live in the same province, I've been recommending all my friends to Kelley for lessons. More...
I can't be happier to have found Kelley for our son's piano lessons and will sing his praises wherever I go :) When Covid hit, we lost our piano teacher as she wasn't able to teach virtually. We chose Kelley as our teacher based on a couple of friends who highly recommended him, and we quickly started virtual lessons with him. Our son has improved so much in the last 4 months. Kelley's been able to fill in deficiencies in his playing, correct technique and issues we didn't even know existed in his playing. Our son just did his RCM exam under Kelley's guidance and he scored a 94%, which is something we've never seen in his piano since his previous exam scores had always been in the 80s. That's been an eye opener for us. Kelley goes above and beyond as a teacher in ways that I've not seen in other piano teacher. He's not just a piano teacher but truly cares for his students. We're so pleased to now be learning with Kelley and will be recommending him to all our friends. More...
