I have been teaching for 14 years. I started as a student teacher in my teens. I have always loved to teach. When I went to university I specifically wanted to become the best teacher I could be. I think music brings joy, and a vehicle for expression into peoples lives. I love sharing that experience with my students.
I did my Bachelor of Music in two different universites. I started at Malaspina (now VIU), and after two years I transferred to Brandon University in Manitoba. I am now a BC registered teacher. I try to provide my students with all the possibilities available to them. This includes exams (practical and theory), The North Island Festival, student recitals, masterclasses etc.
I take students as young as 4 as long as there is a parent who is willing to put in some time at home. Basically anybody, at any age is welcome, as long as they're willing to learn!
For students in conservatory I always start lessons with scales and ear training, as well as other technical exercises. We then proceed to look at the pieces that are being worked on.
