Meet Our Team!
With undergraduate degrees and a wide range of experience in both the arts and education, our "team-of-two" is dedicated to using current research and respected practices, alongside our own experiences and philosophies, to provide a safe and engaging space for children to expand their knowledge and abilities, meet new friends, and most importantly - explore the arts and have fun!
"When we moved to Windsor in 2017, we could not have anticipated the impact that this corner of Ontario would have on our lives. From the people we've met and the things we've learned, to starting our own small business right here on Main Street! We truly could not be more thrilled to be a part of the Kingsville community, and we cannot wait to meet you!"
Co-founder of Creative Mode
Paige graduated from the University of Windsor with an Honours degree in Drama in Education and Community, with a minor focus in Psychology. She went on to study and gain experience in Early Childhood Education. In 2022, she took the leap of a lifetime and created her dream job: full-time instructor at her own arts centre!
Paige has nearly 10 years of experience teaching all ages, from toddlers to high schoolers and even adults. She loves finding the fun in everything she does, and is very passionate about helping children discover not only their interests, but also their confidence!
Though she specializes in drama, Paige has also taught many other subjects, like music, coding, science, and more. And while she is an awesome teacher with lots of knowledge to share, she doesn't claim to know it all. In fact, she's excited to learn something new every day alongside the children she teaches in our Group Arts Programs - because children can really be the best teachers!

Alex also graduated from the University of Windsor with an Honours degree in Comprehensive Music, focusing his studies in jazz bass and piano, as well as music education. After graduating, Alex taught numerous instruments at several music studios across Windsor/Essex. In 2022, Alex co-founded Creative Mode, and is now a full-time music instructor!
Alex has over 5 years of experience teaching all ages, from toddlers to adults, which is why he is our Private Music instructor here at Creative Mode! He loves working with students to find out what they want to learn, and helps to create personalized materials and lessons to support them in reaching their goals. Some may also say that he's a one-man band - because he has years of experience on piano, bass, guitar, ukulele, and drums!
He is also just as much of a performer as he is a teacher. If you're ever in Windsor, you may catch him at Phog Lounge on a Sunday night playing some jazz music with the Coffee House Combo, or on the big stage in Windsor or Detroit playing pop and rock with Stiletto Fire.
But during the days, this well-rounded musician is so excited to teach and learn here, both in Private Lessons and in our several Group Music Programs!
