A bit about Irene: It was always about music.
She has training in both piano and voice and experience as a private teacher and leader in church, community, High School, Middle School and Elementary School choirs.
She currently teaches at the 'Central Valley Academy of Music' , where she has taught piano for 21 years. During this time, she also taught for the Tom Lee Music School in Coquitlam for 9 years. Prior to these teaching years I taught piano in my home in Hope for ten years.
CBC has been a place she loves to work at and she has been here for six years teaching piano and voice, and five years teaching in the ECE department teaching 'Curriculum Development II - Music'.
Among her many hobbies, not the least of them, is teaching English as a Foreign Language, in the summer program, at LCC International University which she has done six times in the past thirteen years. Other things she enjoys are, working in her church at Bakerview MB, in planning services, leading and singing in the choir as well as piano duties when needed.
Reading, entertaining, travel and family are all on her 'favorite things to do' list.
