Connie Masson - Voice& Piano
“My goal is to give students the skills they need to make music for the rest of their lives”
Connie has been performing for most of her life. She graduated from UBC with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance, and has been teaching ever since. Her students have won many awards and many have gone on to professional careers. Many more have continued to enrich their lives with music as they pursue other careers.
Connie teaches voice, piano and theory. She spent many years as music director for the performing arts camp Putting on a Show, which reflects her appreciation of Musical Theater. She is currently Music Director at Duncan United Church, where she plays piano and organ and leads two choirs. She has taught unique Music Classes for home-schoolers which have made learning fun.
She brings to her teaching a respect for each student as an individual, so that the methods and materials used vary according to the needs of the student. Many different styles of music are taught and respected, and patience and a unique sense of humour are constants in her teaching.
She welcomes Piano students aged 6-90, and Voice students 12 and up, and will also do a combination Piano/Voice for younger students. Connie particularly welcomes piano students with autism, and has studied with Serean Pistoresi in California, to develop her skills in this area.
