I was born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario and have performed throughout North America and Europe as a pianist, singer and entertainer.

My music career began as the organist at St. Peter's Cathedral in Peterborough and continues after sharing the stage with the likes of performers such as Sharon Lois and Bram, The Irish Rovers, Ronnie Hawkins, Valdy and many others. 

When not teaching, I work with several musicians including 4Front,  Whitney Paget, performing for weddings, corporate functions, cruise boats, vaudeville shows, festivals, dinner theatres and much more.



I offer lessons in piano, vocal, guitar, and theory to people who have never picked up an instrument before to people who are very experienced.   ​ I teach at a pace that is comfortable for you and you choose the songs that you want to work on! ​   Lessons are offered at my studio to anyone 8 years and up.

 ​ ​




I play private events, weddings, social gatherings, retirement homes, parties and more.  I am comfortable playing almost anywhere.

I play songs for every possible occasion.  I can learn a specific repertoire of songs if requested and  can also play songs by ear, if I have heard them before.

I have played at nearly every venue in Peterborough and numerous parties at private homes and cottages.

I play with many local musicians and can easily put together a group to suit almost any request, from a single to an eight piece band.

I perform at indoor and outdoor venues, at seasonal events and at street dance and block parties.

I am based in Peterborough and play regularly in Peterborough and surrounding areas.

"I have been going to Terry for lessons for at least 5 years now and it's been a fantastic experience. He's super relaxed and friendly, but also really knows and is passionate about what he is doing as both a musician and a teacher. I really appreciate everything he does!"

Sally Russell

"I have been attending Finn's House of Music for 4 years. Terry has taught me many valuable lessons over the years, the most prominent one being music appreciation. The arts are not a desk job; they're damn hard when it is your primary source of income. And he did it; that fact speaks for itself. I'm so glad to know Terry Finn "

Melissa Post

Terry is a very kind and patient teacher.  He has a true love of music and is able to share that easily with his students.  Our daughters love going to their lessons every week and have learned a great deal from Terry over the years.  We feel very fortunate to have Terry as a teacher and would recommend him to anyone.
