- Jazz Improvation
- Music Appreciation
My philosophy for teaching/learning is to do so through creation. This is something that a number of my mentors have impressed upon me. Music is a creative art form, and creativity is a muscle which must be exercised. My goal as a teacher is to give my students the necessary skills to express themselves freely as creative individuals.
I am currently studying Jazz Performance at McGill University, from which I will receive a Bachelor of Music in the spring of 2021. During high school I studied with a local professional, learning the Alan Dawson method of jazz drums. In addition to formal University training and private study, I have travelled to New York City to study with musicians currently on the music scene. These musicians include Peter Apfelbaum, Justin Brown, and Kassa Overall.
