Raised in downtown Hamilton in a music-loving household, Sihaam was trained in the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) Piano method from the age of 8. Performing in choirs and ensembles, she gained accompaniment experience during her teen years while working towards achieving her level 9 RCM. As a young adult, she broadened her musical skills and knowledge by completing an advanced college diploma, focusing on jazz harmony and improvisation. In her spare time, she enjoys arranging covers as well as creating original pieces.
Sihaam has been teaching lessons privately for 10+ years with 5 years of in-studio teaching experience. She enjoys working alongside other musicians as it inspires her to be a better teacher, performer, and composer!
As a believer in the power of music to inspire and heal, she desires to use it in a holistic way to help her students achieve personal as well as musical goals. Sihaam enjoys teaching because it constantly challenges her to see the concepts she knows and teaches in a new light. She believes musicians (no matter how old or young) should always be open to learning through new experiences.
