Music is the language of the soul. The fact that combinations of sounds are able to evoke emotion is the main reason music facsinates me. To me, music speaks louder than words. I want to help my students find their own 'voice'. This is why I believe teaching playing techniques and theory are more valuable than songs. It is like finding your own voice instead of copying someone else. I can teach you songs, but I like to teach my students the building blocks of music so any song can become easy to learn.
I have studied and graduated from Metalworks Institute of Sound and Music Production with a Diploma in Performance and Music Technology (2013-2015).
-My program encompassed a complete range of industry knowledge to prepare artists on a professional level. In my two-year program at Metalworks we studied playing live with other instruments, 1-on-1 lessons with multiple professional artists, proper techniques and etiquette for recording and performing in a music studio and live venue, musical theory and history, musical production and engineering, the physics of sound (how to build a sound treated studio), and soundtracking & sound effects for film and TV.
In addition to Metalworks, I have also graduated from Berklee College of Music's 5-week summer program and 1-week guitar program.
-The 5-week program in 2012 was an amalgamation of their college level performance program condensed into a 5-week summer course. Here we focused on musicianship, theory, receiving private 1-on-1 lessons with professional artists, and performing venues in a band with other students playing different instruments.
-The 1-week program in 2011 offered aspects for improving a guitarist in musical theory, playing techniques, performing in an ensemble (band), and attending guitar clinics from visiting professional artists.
Prior to my college level music education I also received private lessons from 2007 to 2012 with the current guitarist of the band Helix. This was where I spent my Friday afternoons after school from grade 7 up to grade 12.

A great skill I have is recording and producing using digital audio production software. I can offer guidance on how to record instruments (and digital instruments / MIDI), make songs & electronic beats, as well as teach how to mix your own songs. I am adept at using the following recording programs; Cubase, Logic X (and GarageBand), Ableton, and Pro Tools.
