Music is life, life is music. I have boiled down the miracle of music to a basic equation -- R(hythm) X L(yricism/melody) = (expressed through) S(ound). Rhythm is something visceral, a repetitive motion made by our body while we play/sing. Lyricism is the human ability to sustain a melody, to tell a story (in one's mind). Music encompasses one's whole being -- our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual bodies -- all at the same time!
Meditating on musical practice is of immense benefit at every stage of life. And, I believe music is a gift to be freely given. My students only pay me for my time.
I have attended the following schools and earned the following degrees:
- Hochschule fuer Musik in Detmold, Germany - began cello studies
- Medicine Hat College - Music Diploma in cello
- Royal Conservatory of Music - ARCTs in performance in both the piano and cello
My principal teacher was cellist/vocalist Robert Bardston who studied in Germany from Andre Navarra. He taught me the cello, the principals of music, and how to sing (among many other things).
Just many First Place awards in both the cello and piano in Vancouver's music festivals (primarily Kiwanis) while growing up.
Besides the above-mentioned vocal training, my cello teacher Robert Bardston gave me, I have been composing 'jazzy-classical musical theateresque art rock' since I was 21. I produced a 'rock opera' as a multi-media stage production in Vancouver in 2005, and now am looking to produce my rock opera's overture album with the intention that in a few years its cinematic version will be made.
