I am very passionate about teaching piano and sharing my love of music with others. With over 40 years of teaching experience, I am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music through the Music Teachers National Association and the Texas Music Teachers Association; additionally, I am currently the President of the Independent Music Teachers Association of Greater Houston. I am a member of the American College of Musicians (the National Guild of Piano Teachers). I hold two Bachelor of Music degrees (Piano Performance and Theory/Composition) from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas; I also hold a Master of Music degree (Music Performance & Pedagogy) from the University of Houston.

My students participate in many festivals, competitions, recitals, and other events throughout the year, from local to national levels. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience, from beginners to advanced students.

I would love to have the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for music with you!

My name is Inna.

I live in Toronto (Scarborough), Canada.

My first Piano Teacher was my mom who was always bringing students to our house. How she taught them to love music, and play the piano was beyond just "good". She truly inspired me to become a Piano Teacher myself!
Being a gifted girl, my mom decided that her knowledge wasn't enough any longer, so, she enrolled me to Music School for gifted children.

At the age of 15, I got into a Music College, and was allowed to work there as well as a Piano Accompanist.
From when I was 16 y.o., while being in college for 4 years, I started playing piano on a big stage, and entering the national competitions. It was a fabulous time! Lots of prizes were won, lots of fun playing music, and listening to other amazing performers. Time passed, I graduated with Honours and got my Bachelor's in Arts, Piano Performance and Piano Accompanying Degree.

After graduating the Music College, I felt that being only a concert Pianist and a Piano Accompanist wasn't satisfying anymore as I felt I could share my skills and knowledge with someone else. That's why I decided to enroll to a Pedagogical University which after studying there for 5 years, I graduated with Masters Cum Laude (the highest distinction) Degrees in Music Education and Music. This education gave me a broader knowledge and skills to teach not only Piano and Theory, but Voice as well.

I'm a Registered Teacher with the Royal Conservatory of Music, RCM Teacher #104903 , and I'm also a Certified Teacher with Ontario College of Teachers in Good standing, Registration Number: 636014.

Since that time, many years have passed... I raised thousands professional performers, and those who wanted to learn playing piano for themselves. Overall, my teaching experience is more than 30 years.
I started in Ukraine, my motherland, and continued here, in Canada. And let me tell you - all of my students were really as those bright SPARKS - they had sparks starting learning how to play the piano, they had the sparks doing recitals, exams, and competitions, and they still have those sparks towards me, their Teacher. That's why I named my school as SPARKS MUSIC ACADEMY!

Believe me, you won't ever regret having me as your Teacher :)
And in addition to being the TEACHER, I continue my work as a PIANO ACCOMPANIST and CONCERT PIANIST all around the city as I cannot live without your majesty, MUSIC!

Amazing gift, 🎼! I teach keyboard, brass, vocal, theory, etc. I’m based at my home studio near Santiago Canyon College. Obviously personality and fit is essential...so that one day I might be invited to graduation and may be play at student’s wedding.
Currently, students between 5-63 yrs but I have had an 83 yr old! I’m working mostly in person, but some remain online. I also travel to a few. Most are piano, but brass and vocal too.
Passions - music, soccer, Cad. milk choc., travel, culture, Faith, learning, & family (first!)🤣.
Holistic approach, enabling a musician rather than a pianist/trumpeter, channeled in a fun and exciting way.
Royal Schools of Music & London University music background as well as conducting brass/choral groups and playing/teaching at advanced level. Love those that start from scratch! This is more than a business-a mission and vision to see students be the best they can be in life and music.
My rates are $40/30 mins. but most studios are $35-55 and you could probably find a current music student for $32. Experience of directing camps across the US and wider. Care for the individual. Two low key recitals per year. As much fun in learning as possible.
Thanks for your time. Let's chat.
(I am treble vaccinated, wear a mask, and do all I can to ensure healthy learning conditions.)

She has an instrument with a rich, round, warm, honeyed color, and is very much at home in a variety of styles.” This is how Ingrid’s voice is described by world renowned director and conductor Clyde Mitchell who has worked with artists such as Michael Buble, Mel Torme and David Foster. Ingrid is widely admired for her soulful and soothing interpretations of adult contemporary favorites as well as her dynamic and playful renditions of show tunes and light jazz classics. Ingrid’s sound has been described as a combination of Diana Krall and Sarah Brightman with a hint of Sarah McLachlan.

Ingrid is a seasoned vocalist thanks in part to having been forged by fire as a soloist in several oratorio performances including Handel’s Messiah. Her passion lies in connecting with audiences through her vibrant and varied stage shows. Whether Ingrid is performing with a small combo or a full orchestra her multi-lingual repertoire such as “La vie en rose” and “Regresa a mi” transports her audiences to distant lands and then welcomes them home with heartfelt and nostalgic melodies such as “Songbird” and “Danny boy”.

Recently Ingrid has completed her much anticipated debut album 'Rhythms of Your Heart' which was produced by award winning, Grammy nominated producer Daryl Bennett and features the outstanding talents of Eli Bennett, Vince Mai, Dave Martone, Roy Tan, Adam Thomas and the glamorous Rosemary Siemens. Combined, these artists have won several accolades and have performed and recorded with artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Michael Buble, Natalie Cole, Nickelback, and The Temptations.

Ingrid Mapson is sure to bring crowds to their feet with her “amazingly versatile voice that seems to effortlessly span genres” and her “rare ability to sincerely connect to her audience.” Miles Black, Juno Award winning producer/multi instrumentalist/ composer. Be sure to listen to Ingrid’s music and find out when Ingrid will be performing in your city.

Her outstanding show includes everything from the intimate piano and violin setting to the expanded jazz combo and even full orchestra. Also available for corporate work.

Professional Pianist with 10 years+ of experience and an orchestra background. Doctorate (D.M.A) from Rutgers University, USA. Methods taught, such as RCM and Yamaha. I am classically trained and started my music journey with the piano and flute at the age of 5. I started playing bassoon when I was 11 years old. Between grades 3 and 12, I studied in a music-gifted program. I have attended the following schools earning the following degrees:

• Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts, New Jersey (Doctor of Musical Arts)
• Mannes School of Music, The New School, New York (Master of Music)
• University of Taipei, Taiwan (Bachelor of Music).

In class, I follow RCM and Yamaha methods and textbooks. I teach piano and music theory in a couple of music schools in Toronto. I encourage students' musical, social, personal, and emotional development by creating dynamic, well-thought-out lesson plans that empower and engage them. I will assist you with preparing for any future music theory test or simply learning music for enjoyment.

I am a self-motivated, creative individual who champions diversity, equality, and inclusion in music education, as well as developing and promoting novel teaching ways to overcome learning hurdles. I am a multilingual communicator (Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese) who develops great bonds with kids and their parents/guardians from a variety of ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

I believe that music has the power to move people in fundamental, inexplicable ways. I believe that we are all musical souls with our original ideas. I believe in the creativity and musical honesty of our children, and that a good teacher can energize and give voice to that creativity.

The love of music is innate, but fostering that love through lessons leads to the development of the student's own voice, confidence, and commitment. I find that frequent performance opportunities and recitals encourage children's performance abilities and self-esteem, building a sense of community among the students. I encourage young musicians to choose and play pieces of music that speak to their souls, with my task being to help them get ahead in any type of music they choose. Experience has shown me that theory, composition, and musical arrangement are vital to becoming a well-rounded musician, and a strong technical foundation is necessary in order to express one's artistry.

I serve on the faculty of the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and hold Masters and Doctorate degrees from the USC Thornton School of Music, where I studied piano performance, collaboration, and pedagogy on scholarship. My undergraduate degree is from the San Francisco Conservatory and I attended the highly competitive Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and the Colburn School.

I have been teaching piano for 25 years, having served on the faculties of the Munich International School, the San Domenico School, the Lark Musical Society, the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, and the Artetonal Schule für Musik. I see that students do well in a supportive, encouraging, motivating environment. This environment has helped my students win competitions including the PTA Reflections Music Composition Competition and the Armenian Allied Arts Songwriting/Composition Competition. As a pianist I have won prestigious competitions, including the US Open Music Competition, the Leni FéBland Foundation Competition, the Armenian Allied Arts Competition, and the MTAC VOCE Competition. I have played with or for artists including Midori, Felicia Weathers, Eleanor Schönfeld, Alice Schönfeld, Ron Leonard, and Martin Chalifour. My teachers include Kevin Fitz-Gerald, Stewart Gordon, Antoinette Perry, James Bonn, Laurette Goldberg and Lucinda Carver (harpischord), Mack McCray, Polli Chambers-Salazar, Caroline Oltmanns, Timothy Ehlen, and Natalie Dalschaert.

In teaching, I put great emphasis upon public performances, organizing several large recitals per year, and I keep my prices comparably low because I am trying to recruit students who are dedicated and hard workers, though not necessarily born into great privilege. In protecting my students' privacy, you will not see pictures of them on my website or on my social media pages. But I am extremely proud of my current and former students, whose years of study have helped prepare them for institutions including Yale, Brown, Berkeley, Juilliard, Duke, Northwestern, USC, UCLA, UCSD, Polytechnic Academy, CAMS, and Eton.

My publications include My First Armenian Songbook and Asdghig Wants to Grow Up Quickly, which won the most prestigious prize for Western Armenian literature, the Tölölyan Prize (2021). I work as a collaborator with instrumentalists and singers. I teach languages to opera singers and also offer piano lessons in multiple languages: German, Italian, Armenian, Spanish, and English (native speaker).

Lessons vary between 45 and 90 minutes in length, depending on level. I help prepare students for the Royal Conservatory of Music and am recommended by RCM as a teacher whose students have consistently perform at high levels.

I believe that music is a source of light in the world. Teaching children to understand the language of music will enrich their lives with a deeper understanding of culture, art, and aesthetics, and will illuminate the future for all of us. I teach in person and virtually and may be contacted below for piano lessons below. My current waitlist for lesson during school hours is three years' long, but I have room for adults and homeschooled children available during school hours.
