Ruth Williams - Piano & Theory

Ruth grew up in northern B.C. where she received an ARCT in Piano from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto in both Teacher’s and Solo Performer’s degrees.  She attended the Banff School of Fine Arts and later the University of British Columbia where she studied with Boris Roubakine, and received a Bachelor of Music degree. She is a member of the B.C. Registered Music Teachers’ Association.

Ruth has been teaching in her own studio since 1974, working with all levels of students from beginner to advanced, and with all ages from very young to the more mature. Former students have gone on to study at UBC, University of Victoria, and the Royal Conservatory in Toronto. She came to the Duncan area four years ago, and has also taught at Brentwood College School for two years.

Ruth focuses mainly on classical music in her studio, but includes some popular and lighter music as well.  There is a strong emphasis on developing reading ability, ear training, and theory - all areas that contribute to a well-rounded musician. Ruth offers private instruction with group classes and recitals being offered on a regular basis. Students are also encouraged to participate in music festivals and the examination process.
