In-Studio Piano Lessons

Ford teaches in-person private piano lessons at his studio located at 31 Alexander Street in downtown Toronto. This convenient location is a 5-min walk from the College Park Subway Station.

Online Piano Lessons

Ford also provides online piano lessons via Zoom. This is a good choice for people who have busy schedules, who have difficulty leaving their homes, who travel frequently, or who live in remote areas where an experienced and highly qualified piano teacher cannot be found. A hybrid model, utilizing a combination of in-studio and online lessons, is also possible.


Ford schedules weekly lessons that are either 30, 45, or 60 minutes long. The length depends on the level and amount of time for practice. The fee for a 60-minute lesson is $65 and is pro-rated for other lesson lengths. He requires payment in advance every month. The policies are those recommended by the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association.
