Andrea is a registered voice teacher, and also teaches piano and theory. Since 2001 she has been teaching private music lessons to all ages, from 4 year olds to seniors, and now is also offering Kindermusik classes for newborns to 7 year olds. She holds a B.Mus. from the University of Calgary, and after years of teaching in Calgary and Nanaimo studios, she has now opened her own studio, Joy of Music, in Duncan. Her students enjoy her positive, practical approach to teaching and are given the skills and technique to sing and play the music they enjoy and encouraged to pursue their own goals.
Andrea is also an active performer on the island, and has sung with Pacific Opera Victoria and Vancouver Island Choruses, and played the role of Maria in the Sound of Music, Flora in La Traviata, and Adele in the Champagne Ball, to name a few.
