Ariane has worked as a music and band teacher in a private school as well as for school District 57 as both a substitute teacher and a workshop clinician and has held a valid BC Ministry of Education teacher certificate. She enjoys teaching people of all ages and levels and has been thrilled to see some of her students advance to studying music at the university level. She has studied flute and taken lessons with Brenda Fedoruk, Lanny Pollet, Anne-Elise Keiffer, Lise Daoust, Kathleen Rudolph, and has also attended Master classes at Domaine Forget with Raymond Guiot, and Alain Marion.
