A Natural Music Teacher

About Me

“I love teaching piano and music theory.

When you love what you are doing so much, you feel as if you
have never worked a day in your life”. Lorna Wanzel

Dr. Lorna Wanzel grew up in England. She now lives in Halifax Nova Scotia, where she maintains a very successful private piano teaching studio. She has over 40 years of experience teaching piano skills, rudiments, history of music, harmony, counterpoint, analysis, composition and piano pedagogy to students of all ages. She is also an experienced examiner, clinician, adjudicator and researcher.
Dr. Wanzel is a former President of the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations and of the Nova Scotia Registered Music Teachers’ Association. She started the NSRMTA Research Group, the first of its kind in the world and has presented research papers on various topics, including motivation and retention of students in the private music studio.
