Leona has been teaching in the Tri-City area for over 20 years devoting much of her time to students enrolled with the BCCM in Port Coquitlam.
She enjoys working with students of all ages and levels, and is familiar with conventional ways of introducing children to music. Leona also uses other methods, such as solfege and rhythm and play, to teach and understanding of music to her students. She believes that the process of learning is just as important as the goal.
Leona regularly attends workshops and meetings to keep her ideas fresh and is comfortable teaching to the requirements set out by the BCCM exam system. Her students attend recitals, festivals and complete exams on a regular basis.
Leona has been teaching at the British Columbia Conservatory of Music since August 2006.
