Teaching music creates a ripple effect with a positive result in the community and in the students life. I often will help guide students to decide if whether they want to be "musicians for life" or "musicians for profit" and what the differences are. Some students only want to learn a few popular songs, others are dedicated to composing and producing their own album and going on tour. I've helped tens of thousands of students further their musical journey, and every single one is unique.
I have been playing guitar/drums and bass for 22 years. I began teaching 18 years ago after being granted an opportunity to teach my former teachers students (from the local music school where I was taking lessons) when he had to leave due to personal reasons. I have continued to teach with passion, teaching students with disabilities, teaching for several music schools, designing curriculums for the Vancouver School Board, receiving a Grant from the Province of Alberta to co-ordinate a musical event for the community, holding a board position with the Parkland Music Teachers Association and teaching over 15,000 lessons total.
Alberta Culture Days - $5000 grant awarded by the Province of Alberta for a musical event entitled "Behind the Music" in 2014.
