Lovely to see this memory of you, Jon. I was your Grade One teacher in Burnaby! I was Miss McKinnon then. I can still see your serious little face. You were a pleasure to teach. Congratulations on all your achievements in life. ❤️🎼
Hi there, this is a very sweet picture! I studied with Edward Parker in the 90's. Private piano and pedagogy. He was an amazing teacher. Incidentally, I remember him receiving phone calls from you during my lessons. Sometimes you were backstage world class concert halls, waiting to perform. I felt like I knew you and your family through Edward. On the other side of the living room wall from me, I could hear intense practicing... Jamie? Anyway, I enjoy seeing and listening to your posts! Wishing you all the best!
genius at work
knew who it was before the name said..... looks the same !
It's so lovely to see these reminiscences! I remember being in awe of you when I was about 9 or 10. We were both on the Kiwanis circuit in Vancouver and I had won the (I think) Collingwood Community Cup for having the highest marks or something along those lines, in the vocal category. It allowed me to attend the show case they had each year to receive my trophy. But what I remember most is you playing at that event. I have followed your career with interest over the years. Even then we knew you were someone very special. Thank you for your many gifts. 🎶
You haven't changed a bit!
That is so sweet Jackie❤
Look at that hand position! Wow.
