While studying piano playing, she also learnt the violin from Walter Prystawski, ballet from Nesta Toumine based in Ottawa and the recorder from Wolfgang Grunsky. She played her first complete length recital at the age of nine in Toronto at the Royal Conservatory of Music, which is where she studied for nine years between 1964 and 1973, from the likes of Myrtle Guerrero and Earle Moss. Later on she became a student of Jean -Paul Sevilla, the renowned French pianist, in the University of Ottawa, where she came first in the competition known as Gian Battista Viotti in 1978 and in the same year also won the CBC Talent Festival's piano category.
