I think music is for everyone and it is for enjoyment. Goals and expectations are nice, but first of all I want to be having fun and enjoying music with you or your child. I believe from that starting point everyone can take part in the joy of music making that can lead to as a little or as much as a nice social life, joy of discovery and personal improvement, artistic expression, or even a fulfilling and challenging career.
I have completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University, studying primarily jazz performance and improvisation. Before that I studied classical guitar in the RCM up to grade 7 while playing in rock bands and and getting interested in jazz. Since graduating York I've been teaching in Toronto and playing and touring as a bassist among some of the best musicians in Canada.
I won some scholarships in my school days, but most of all I'm proud to have been a busy working full time musician and if that's not award enough I don't what is.
I wasn't interested in music until my early teens, in fact I quit piano lessons as child! As such I feel I share a common background to most people who are starting music for the first time or trying to get to 'the next level', whichever level that may be. I've studied so many styles of American, Classical and World music for the purposes of teaching a curious mind, or for the purpose of fitting in to a new band as a bass player that I don't even know what I like any more, but I've found that strong understanding of fundamentals and music theory make it possible to learn anything I can hear and I hope to pass those skills on to anyone who is looking.
