- Electric Guitar
Music has been a thread throughout my entire life. Lessons I took as a young teen inspired to choose a path of pursuing music professionally. My teaching philosophy is to teach people the music they love and actually want to play. I believe there are lessons that can be learned in most songs whether it's techniques, rhythm, chord study, etc. I've found that not approaching lessons with an agenda but rather listening to people's tastes and desires keep the learning fun, inspired and more productive. For intermediate and advanced students I specialize in imparting musical concepts, guitar "tricks" and different ways of looking at the instrument to give them tools to improvise, write and find their own voice as a player.
I am a performing and recording artist of nearly 30 years. I have also been teaching for over 10 years, mostly private but I've worked at some schools as well including Creativ Music Center and Long & McQuade. I have toured Canada, US and UK and have appeared at major festivals including the Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival and Mission Folk Festival. My music has received radio play on CBC and other major media outlets and have I have had extensive press coverage including The Vancouver Sun, The Georgia Straight and Penguin Eggs Magazine. I have helped many guitar players hone their skills and continue to inspire players of all ages to improve.
I've appeared at major festivals including Vancouver Folkfest, Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Mission Roots and Blues Festival and many other high profile venues nationally and internationally.
