Dana Crerar - Woodwinds, Flute music lessons in Calgary North

Dana Crerar (Woodwinds, Flute)

I’ve been in love with music since I was four. To me, there has always been an emotional depth and constructive story with every type of music out there. As a musician, I try to capture those moments and share them with as many people as possible. I plan to share my knowledge, passion, and energy with every student. My structured but relaxed, approach to learning music will not only increase your child’s confidence in his or her abilities, but over the other areas of life as well.
I feel everyone needs an outlet to channel energy, and for me, this channel is and has always been music; Playing it, singing it, or simply listening to it. I would love to explore and expand my melodious horizons with each student and hopefully ignite a harmonious flame within them that will be fervent even 50 years from now.
I am here for MUSIC! To share my knowledge and passion for music with others is what makes my soul sing! I will continually be furthering my education and abilities, so I can be as best as I can for your kids!
