Music that challenges the listener to stay attentive exemplifies what I enjoy listening to and what I aspire to put forward in my own songs. Music has always been a passion of mine and it continues to amaze me how much more there still is to discover as you begin to start putting the puzzle pieces together. It is a lifelong journey that I am extremely grateful to be a part of.
I aspire to pass on the knowledge that I have gained throughout my experiences onto the next generation of musicians, knowing that they will be the future of music. The best way to achieve this is by forming a relationship from teacher to student and relating to them, putting yourself in their shoes, and looking at things the way that they see it. I have learned that relatability is one of the most important facets of a successful teacher. A proficient and relatable teacher leads to a student's development of a mindset for success.
My first music lessons began in 2008 when I received my first guitar. I quickly took to the instrument and began to forge my path as a musician. I stopped taking lessons after two years and began educating myself through trial and error with the help of the internet. I enrolled myself in guitar classes all throughout high school, with a focus on jazz and classical guitar works. During this time, I taught myself the drums by listening to my favourite songs/artists and transcribing them. It was around this time when I really began to consider myself as a multi-instrumentalist and musician. After high school, I enrolled at Carleton University and took courses in the music program. Among these were: Classical Music History, Issues in Popular Music, Computer Music Applications, Music Theory and Harmony for Guitarists (with Don Ross!), Jazz Improvisation, and Film Music.
I have an extensive skillset to offer students in establishing them into a well rounded musicians. I am well versed in technique for my three main instruments: guitar, drums, and bass. Proficient technique is an important tool that allows you to express yourself better musically. This is augmented by the knowledge of music theory, which is something that I have a lot of experience with. I am also an audio engineer/producer with two releases in my discography and years of experience to share. Lastly, I will help students develop a mindset of creativity to write their own music! Songwriting is not an easy task and original music is something to be proud of. I have had years of exposure working in different styles and genres of music, analyzing why good songs sound 'good' in their respective genres. As a fun fact, my most comfortable genres to work in are: progressive rock, metal, and jazz/fusion. Students working with me will get the chance to develop and write the songs that they want to be heard!
