- Electric Guitar
I have taught students from ages 6 to 86 years old. I started out in my early years playing Rock music but I fell in love with classical guitar. Ever since I got into classical music, I also learnt other instruments like organ and piano. I play organ at churches and I love playing J.S. Bach on organ and guitar too. ( Of course, I have a wide repertoire of Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic era and "modern" music) I tried university but this was not the path for me to gain better musicianship. I ended up studying privately. Through my mentors that were highly reputed performers and teachers, I became very successful as a well traveled performer and a teacher across Canada. I have played at many hotels, restaurants, weddings and recitals. I also played in many rock bands and even led jam sessions teaching "off the street" people to play. I can relate to many people who fall through the cracks that get frustrated learning the "conventional way" because myself I found learning in my early years very difficult. I realize there are so many "different"ways learning like I did. With my background with both organ and classical guitar, I do a lot of rearranging music for my students and ensembles with other performers. I am lucky to have perfect pitch because often students ask me to figure out YouTube videos on the spot and I arrange music in their way of learning. I am always learning what the latest pop hits or classic oldies for either my students or some gig performing with other musicians. I have also adapted to teaching other instruments such as ukulele and mandolin. My students have a blast learning pop songs adapted to ukulele and mandolin I rearrange from other instruments. With COVID-19, I have adapted to teaching online. I have also ran summer camps of groups of young children making music and making fun. I learnt with very young children, you can never overplan for lesson plans. I had a number of students who did RCM exams and I had a few students that were invited to perform in provincial music festivals.
I studied privately with Glen Wiener, Harold Micay and Paul Hammer. I had performed in master classes with Norbert Kraft, Ray Staley, Wilson and MaCallister and others. I did do grade X RCM practical guitar but didn't do the theory requirements for full RCM grade X. I did do grade IX organ with theory.
