Marah Pantzer holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from The Kings University College with a major in piano and has been teaching piano since age 16.  She is passionate about passing on the joy of music.  With a strong focus on both the technical aspects and well as the fun of making music Marah provides a balanced approach to music making. 

Classically trained, Marah has studied at Alberta College and Kings University in Edmonton. She has had the privilege of studying with professors who trained in schools such as Julliard and Eastman.  Her musical studies started at the age of five in Vermillion Alberta and she developed a love of music early on.  She has performed in many competitions and recitals including giving her first joint concert with fellow student in Leduc at the age of 16. Her studies also include composition, conducting and voice.

In Marah's Words:

My vision for all my students is for them to have the opportunity to thrill and delight themselves and others with their playing.  I teach because this is my passion.  I love music and I love inspiring and helping others to discover their own love of music.  

My commitment to my students is to provide a safe environment along with the tools they need to support their musical learning.  There is nothing more rewarding to me than seeing the joy and confidence of a student who is discovering their own skills and having fun along the way.

She loves exploring different musical styles and techniques and is always on the search for something new to discover. Apart from piano, her other musical interests and experiences include singing, both as a soloist and with groups, playing flute in her school band, and participating in musical theatre productions.  

Jasmine's vision for her students: 

My vision for my students is that they discover their own individual passion and love for music. My hope is that they will develop a unique musical voice and technical skills that they can use  throughout their life. I want to support them in exploring their musical interests, and for them to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as they develop their skills.

I’m excited to teach because piano has been such a positive influence in my life, and I look forward to sharing my own love of music with others. My goal is to make learning piano a rewarding and fun experience for all my students!

what people are saying

As an adult student with no previous musical experience, I have found Marah’s teaching methods to be extremely beneficial.  I have learned more from Marah in just 2 months than in the previous 18 months of lessons. She is dedicated, patient and the consummate professional. Marah is a teacher who loves to teach and it shows in her enthusiasm and spirit. I would recommend Marah to anyone who truly wants to learn from a truly great teacher.

My daughter started taking piano lessons from Marah about a year ago. We chose to begin with Marah because her passion of music was obvious.  Since we began, she has instilled that love of music in my daughter.
