The only reason I am pursuing music is because of the wonderful music educators who I have been privileged enough to work with. The first thing I noticed about all of my teachers is how excited they got when talking about music and how it made me excited about playing music, so first and foremost, I try to share my love of music with my students. It is impossible to make great music if the passion is not there, but anyone can deliver a compelling performance if it is. Beyond this, I believe it is very important that brass students learn good technique. Brass instruments are a joy to play when used efficiently, but can be a headache when you develop bad habits, so I try to make sure students learn strong fundamentals alongside their more musical pursuits.
I am currently pursuing a bachelor's in tuba performance at McGill university.
I study tuba privately with Sasha Johnson of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and previously studied with Jen Stephen of the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony. In addition to my private studies I played principal tuba in the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra for the 2019/20 season and played tuba with the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra from 2018-2020.

I spent a summer volunteering at a summer camp and two seasons teaching skiing to students of all ages, but primarily young children, so I will be comfortable teaching younger students.
