- Music Theory (Beginner-Intermediate)
Music has always been a huge part of my life. It has been a hobby, a passion and now a profession. That having been said, it has not always been easy. It is my belief that music is a microcosm of life; the things we can learn about the world, others, community and ourselves can be a departure point, or healing point, for so many individuals. My belief is that music finds its way into everyone's life for a reason, and they can grow from it. As a music teacher, I believe that I am simply one stepping stone in a student's journey. My student's creativity, art, values and beliefs will be at the core of the work we do, and I am there to be in their corner and on their side, helping when they need me to. I am deeply passionate about mental health in the arts and offer lessons that cater specifically to managing performance anxiety, mental health and the emotional component to learning our craft. Please reach out to me for more information!

As well as being a musician, I am also a certified life coach, life skills facilitator and soon to be registered professional counsellor. I am a volunteer crisis responder with Kids Help Phone and have received training in that field. My teaching style is therefore trauma informed and student centered. I ensure there is always emphasis on compassion, co-creative teaching, as well as focus on mental and physical wellbeing. If you are interested in mental skills, inspiration and creativity, healthy practicing, performance preparation or peak performance in either coaching or lesson settings, please reach out to me.
