Renee is a freelance musician based in Guelph, Ontario, who loves exploring various instruments and styles of music. Her first love is the piano and she is currently performing and recording as a soloist, playing piano, singing and incorporating vocal percussion into her songs. She is also a music instructor and part of the Indie duo, Tiger Suit, who plays Electronica/Rock fusion.
She began her musical journey studying classical piano, but quickly became interested in vocal technique and arranging. In high school, musical time was spent composing vocal arrangements, singing in various vocal ensembles and, of course, practicing classical piano pieces. At York University she broadened her musical interests by adding piano improvisation, South Indian singing and drumming, electronic music and composition into her studies.
She has had the opportunity to study with Casey Sokol, Trichy and Suba Sankaran and David Mott. Presently, she is performing and working on a variety of musical projects while maintaining a busy teaching schedule.
