Kama has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia, and an ARCT diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music. She’s been teaching piano for 30 years starting as a student teaching from home, then working at music schools in Greater Vancouver area and later in B.C’s Okanagan Valley before moving to Edmonton and teaching at Edmonton Academy of Music.
In addition to teaching, she has also worked as a piano accompanist for voice and instrumental students, choirs and a musical theatre company, providing piano accompaniment for rehearsals and performances.
She believes that learning to play the piano provides an opportunity for students to explore creativity while being challenged and developing study skills, as they have to practise daily and persevere in order to learn the music. She enjoys playing many different styles of music and is happy to have students bring in classical, pop, jazz or any music they’re interested in playing to lessons.
