Hi There! My name is Ellie and I am the owner of Ellie's Melodies. I love to perform, share my music and use it connect with my community.

I also regularly perform with the West Coast Symphony, West Van Youth Strings, and many other local groups. I am also the recipient of the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Mildred Johnston Music Award, 2008-2009 Peter Rohloff Memorial Award, and the 2004-2008 recipient of the Killarney Performing Arts Excellence Award.

"Ellen is a gem. I honestly cannot say enough good things about her. She was a breeze to work with while planning our ceremony. What I appreciate most is how she worked with us and the songs we were thinking of to create a truly unique and personal playlist. She timed everything perfectly and played each song with heart and passion, even the silly ones. Many people, including our venue, complimented us on how beautiful the music was. I can still hear her playing in my head when I think back to our ceremony."
