Music For Young Children provides the best quality music education to young children by blending the pleasure and joy of music making with sound instruction.
(Owner, B.A., Music, MYCC, RCM Certified Teacher)
As your teacher, I am pleased to introduce you to the “happy habit” of music- right here in Kemptville! With much to discover in the world of music, consider me as your guide along the way. MYC lessons are more than traditional piano lessons. They are a jam packed hour of music lessons and fun.
There are many tools that I use to aid in our discoveries. One such tool is this website. I hope you enjoy the articles, downloads and information it brings. I value your comments, and they can be great conversation starters for you (the parent and student – who I like to call the “music family”) as well as teachers.
Thank you for choosing to take this journey with me.
(MYC Teacher, multi-instrumentalist, and student: Ottawa U Music program)
As an experienced multi-instrumentalist, I have been teaching music for 6 years, and performing for over 11 years. I began my musical studies at the age of 5, through the Music for Young Children program under the guidance of Sue Heidbrecht. After graduation from MYC I continued studying piano under Sue Heidebrecht and Judith Ginsberg, reaching grade 10 Conservatory Canada level, and completing Level 4 theory. I also play violin (from the age of 6), and viola (from the age of 15) and have performed extensively on all three instruments in a variety of genres. I have played violin with the classical ensemble Stellae Boreales, Celtic fiddle with the Maplewood Ceilidh Band, and viola as a member of the Cadenza Quartet. I was the principal viola of the Ottawa Youth Orchestra and of the Ottawa Pops Orchestra. I am also part of the folk trio Fiddlehead Soup, in which I play keyboard, violin, viola, and vocals. I am currently in my 4th year of my bachelor of viola performance.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your children and to impart my love of music to them!

(Teaching Apprentice, level 8 piano & Theory 4, Conservatory Canada)
Hello, my name is Geneviève Roy Griffin. I started piano at the age of 6 (also in Music for Young Children!) and have been pursuing lessons ever since. I completed my Grade 8 exam and my Theory 4 in the summer of 2020. However, my lessons will stop this fall as I will be attending (online) Film Studies at Carleton University. I’ve always had an interest in the movie business but always knew I was more of a behind-camera kind of gal.
My goal is to become a film editor, whether it be for music, writing or camera. I love to draw, paint and write short to long stories in my free time. I love playing the classics like Clair de Lune, Nocturne, anything with a mellow tune or anything that helps me write!
