As an educator, my role is to provide a safe, warm, and welcoming environment for you to learn and grow. An environment where you can express freely and without judgement. A place where you are involve in your own education and have a say on what you would like to learn. I will make sure to take into account your interest and learning styles and ensure that I adapt my teaching to your needs. Ultimately, I will engage you in activities that requires you to be creative, disciplined, focused, and expressive.
I completed my Bachelor of Music Degree in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music from MacEwan University. During my time at MacEwan I held the lead trumpet chair in the MacEwan Big Band I for five seasons and was the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the MacEwan Trumpet Ensemble for three years. I appeared with the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra on numerous occasions as a section member as well as a regular pit musician of the MacEwan Theatre Department and other various musical productions. In Spring 2019, I was fortunate to be featured as a guest soloist with the Festival City Winds Music Society.
I had been the recipient of numerous awards including the John K. Nikel Scholarship presented by the Alberta International Band Festival, and the Diana Bacon Scholarship Award presented by Diana Bacon and the Edmonton Youth Orchestra. I also received the Maestro Award from the Seattle WorldStrides Heritage Festival, Band Director’s Award from Harry Ainlay High School, Alexander Rutherford Scholarship, Armand and Lucie Baril Scholarship, Jazz Band Scholarship and Music Convocation Award presented by MacEwan University.
I came to Canada in 2009 from the Philippines. I went through the public-school music program at Harry Ainlay High School where I played in various ensembles. It is where my band teacher inspired me to become a musician. I continue to grow my musical career as a musician, educator, and clinician. I was a regular member of the Edmonton Youth Orchestra for six seasons. Marching music has been an integral part of my musical journey and has performed at the Drum Corps International World Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana with the Blue Saints Drum Corps and the Oregon Crusaders Drum Corps. I taught the Edmonton Sabers Marching Band for three seasons and was an instructor and ensemble director with the Vernon Cadet Training Centre for three summers. A few of my notable teachers includes Joel Gray (MacEwan University), Alvin Lowrey (ESO, trumpet emeritus), Bill Dimmer (ESO, trumpet emeritus), Wayne Bergeron (Los Angeles Recording Artist), and Paul Baron (Touring Musical Production). Currently, I am working with Raymond Baril and the Edmonton Winds receiving a conducting mentorship as well as with Joel Gray doing an assistantship/co-directing the Littlebirds Big Band. Having a vast experience in all aspect of music have enrich me and my knowledge of music to help students of any levels and age!
