What I like about my teacher: What I like about my lessons: Mrs. Chow is a kind and encouraging teacher who pushes me each day to achieve my very best. She always goes above and beyond by setting up extra singing opportunities for me. I am looking forward to many more years of learning with Mrs. Chow.
What my teacher says about me: What my teacher says about me: Riley has had a very successful first year of singing lessons! She enjoys taking part in different musical theatre shows. She achieved a First Class Honor with Distinction and 90% in her very first RCM Voice Prep Exam as well as an Honorable Mention for Voice Prep Level at ORMTA Canada Music Week. This year, in addition to The Barrie Music Festival and her next RCM Exam, she will also participate in the ORMTA scholarship evaluations. Riley always comes to class well-prepared. She is a very hard-working student. It is a pleasure for me to work with her. – Mrs. Wing Chow
