I believe that the individual student should be cultivated strategically according to their temperament, interests and transferable skills and understandings. It is my job as a teacher to discover the crux for learning for each of my students so that they can be supported in the way that they require and begin the road to making beautiful music.
I have a bachelor's degree from Dalhousie University for classical guitar with a specialization in orchestration. One of my first teachers in school was the Canadian fingerstyle master Don Ross who taught me a lot about new playing techniques and how to use open and altered guitar tunings for successful arrangements. I then studied orchestration with Scott Macmillan who was an award winning composer and incredible performer of Blues, Jazz, Celtic music (as he was a native of Cape Breton) as well as performing and conducting pieces by classical composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bartok, and Hindemith. He was a great inspiration to my ability as a composer and orchestrator and guided me in my arrangements of Bartok and Ravel for solo guitar and guitar quartet.
I enjoyed the privilege of playing viola da gamba for Soheila Goleistani, at the Toronto Tirgan Festival. I also continue to make arrangements of Persian folk music for various projects. I have also performed my own experimental compositions at the Obey Festival ( for viola, gongs and vibrating membranes in Halifax representing Dalhousie Universities. and the 21c conference for guitar and technology(guitar, vibration speakers, harp, cymbals and timpani) at the University of Ottawa. Since 2015 I have been studying North Indian Classical music on Sarod and have studied with renowned masters, sitarist Irshad Khan and Sarodist Arnab Chakraborty.
