About me

I am a multi-instrumentalist with many years of high-volume studio teaching experience. I have taught many programs and styles over the years, including RCM and Music for Young Children.

I have taken classical and folk music lessons on a variety of instruments, and take great joy in studying music from other cultures such as China and India. I have 17 years of experience playing in community groups, chamber ensembles and pop groups playing percussion, bass, keyboards and ukulele. I have just as many years experience singing in choirs and pop groups and have taken a year of private singing lessons as well as two years of university level solfege classes. I am also currently employed as an organist.

At university, I studied contemporary composition, which included electroacoustic music. I do my own recordings and production and have done sound design and composition for film and live theater.

I primarily teach Royal Conservatory, but am eager to teach outside of the program for students who take an interest. At the same time, I am very careful to make sure that students who wish to take a purely classical route have a firm grasp of all of the basic elements of playing and performing in order to prepare them for any potential post secondary pursuits.

I believe passionately that in order to fully develop ones musical skills and become a truly useful musician, children must start playing together at a young age, and I therefore encourage duet playing with all of my students.

I have a very relaxed demeanor and, though recitals are mandatory, I make sure that they are as casual and fun as possible. For the more serious students, there are opportunities for festivals and exams.
