dMeet the beautiful and delightful Priya Shah! She's new to Toronto, so if you see her around, give her a big welcome!
Priya is a Calgary-born, Toronto-based musician, music therapist, and vocal instructor. Compelled by a deeply-rooted sensitivity to the ability of music to identify and express emotions, she consciously uses a person-centered and resource-oriented approach to both teaching and music therapy. Priya has a Master of Music Therapy degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Bachelor of Music degree with a minor in psychology and women and gender studies from Carleton University. As a vocalist and musician, Priya draws from a diverse background of influence and experiences. From the Bollywood hits she heard as a child and years of being in a choir to the discovery and exploration of jazz, improvisation, Indian Classical, and folk music as an adult, every sound counts. She loves writing her own songs and arrangements and is currently working on an EP to be released in 2019. Priya continues to pursue a career in music through teaching, performing, music therapy, and improvisation.
