My name is Bennet Charter. I have been teaching piano in Winnipeg, Manitoba since 2003 and am always very excited to share my passion for music and learning with my students! I have both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music (Piano Performance) from the University of Manitoba as well as my ARCT diploma (Piano Performer) from the Royal Conservatory of Music.
My goal as a teacher is to provide a fun and encouraging learning experience while, at the same time, working with students to strive for excellence in their musical pursuits.
In addition to teaching, I am active as a collaborative pianist and adjudicator.
Music has enriched my life in so many ways. I am always excited to have the opportunity to help students experience it the way I have and, hopefully, to have it enrich their lives in a similar way.
