Online Piano & Singing Lessons - Beginner to Advanced - Free Trial Available

Hi there! My name is Alex Whorms.

Throughout my career I have had the privilege to study many styles of piano and vocal music through the Royal Conservatory of Music, New York University, Humber College, and McMaster University. Through my music industry experience as a songwriter, recording artist, and film soundtrack composer, I have learnt many practical skills, ranging from performance etiquette to music technology.  

It is a true passion of mine to inspire and motivate a new generation of musicians while providing them with a well-rounded musical skillset including strong sight-reading abilities, healthy physical technique, theory, ear training, and performance mastery

All students are invited to perform in virtual recitals which I host 4 times a year! Many students choose to prepare for

- Royal Conservatory Examinations

- University & College Auditions

- Concerts & Recording Sessions

- Songwriting & Composition Projects

I enjoy creating customized lesson plans for each student to help them achieve their own unique goals and realize their creative potential. I sincerely hope music lessons will be a source of joy for every student for years to come!

Testimonials

"Alex has been teaching my sons (Josh 14 and Jake 16) piano since August 2019. They told me that they ‘liked’ their previous 2 teachers, but, ‘Alex is amazing’. 

She is always so exuberant and encouraging and positive and knowledgeable that it inspires them to practice and to be better, they then look forward to impressing her at their next lesson.  

My sons have very different personalities, and Alex manages to reach both of them, cultivating what I believe will now probably be a life long love for the piano. 

For this gift to my sons I will be forever grateful to her."

"I’ve been a part of school choirs and ensembles for my whole life but I’ve always been afraid to sing solo.

I started my lessons with Alex to help prepare me for university entrance auditions and they have become so much more for me.

With the help of Alex, I have found myself wholeheartedly pursuing my dream, enrolled in my ideal post-secondary program, and I have been slowly finding the confidence to perform on stage alone.

I’d also like to think I’ve made a passionate, supportive, and sincere friend too.

I owe so much of my growth in the past year to Alex."

"It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Alex Whorms, a piano teacher from whom I have benefited.  I have been her student for the past ten months, and can speak with confidence about her abilities and qualifications to effectively teach adult piano students. 

Alex is a very intelligent, personable young woman who is gifted across the musical spectrum.  Her skills and dedication to students are excellent, and she has helped me progress from a complete neophyte to a beginner with a passion for piano and an appreciation for music theory.  Alex is a joy to work with, and understands what I need to accomplish learning objectives quickly.  She has a great ear for music, and can readily identify any misplayed notes. 

She has a passion for music as shown by her own burgeoning career.  Her innate sense of musicianship is contagious and she leads by example, making you want to play better. 

I have both become better at piano and very much enjoyed the experience, with all the credit due to Ms. Whorms."

“Our daughter, Jasmine, over the last two years expressed her interest in learning the piano.  We finally enrolled in piano lessons with Alex earlier this year.  

Alex’s personality and patience with her students are great strengths that other prospecting parents will come to appreciate.  Her overall music knowledge inspires Jasmine to explore music along with the desire to also learn guitar.  Jasmine has quickly developed her skill level to the amazement of her parents. 

The ability to have virtual lessons during COVID restrictions and/or re-opening stages is well formatted to suit Jasmine into the future.  Jasmine is looking forward to continuing her lessons in the years to come.  Thank you so much Alex for your inspiring music direction!”

"I have been with Ms. Alex for two years and I have learned so much from her. She is always very patient and kind to me. She encourages me to keep trying and not to give up. If I don’t understand something she is will explain it again until I do. 

She gives me the confidence to sing and write my own songs as well. She makes learning piano fun and exciting. I get so excited to meet her online every week. 

She also listens to me and my ideas and challenges me too. 

I feel very lucky to have her as my teacher."
