McAuley, Michael

Music Director of St. Columba-by-the-Lake, Pointe-Claire

MICHAEL McAULEY is Music Director for the Church of St. Columba by-the-Lake and has taught piano at the St. Columba Music Centre for over twenty years. He studied at McGill University where he earned a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance, and a Licentiate in Singing. His other areas of music study have been the organ and choral conducting. His teaching has a strong classical foundation but delves into other styles, depending on the needs and interests of the student. A typical lesson involves working on varied repertoire while developing  musical expression and physical ease at the piano. Some other areas of focus during lessons are:

  • rudiments of music theory and harmony
  • developing listening skills with ear-training exercises
  • improving note-reading and rhythm skills
    learning basic music history
  • learning how to collaborate musically by playing duets

Students meet to perform for each other and to enjoy music appreciation sessions at various times during the year.

Private piano lessons are offered to people of all ages, from beginner to advanced at the St. Columba Music Centre.
