As a teacher, my goal is so encourage a love of music that will last a lifetime. I am particularly interested in exploring what it is that makes people excited to play and listen to music. I want to open my students’ ears to new things, and give them the tools to be able to understand some common threads that connect different styles of music and art in general.
I want every student to feel like they’re having fun and build their confidence to where they can express themselves through music. To achieve this, I think it’s absolutely crucial to set realistic goals and to be forward about what it will take to achieve them. Everyone student is different and I welcome the opportunity to grow and learn together.
I received my diploma in jazz performance on guitar and my bachelor of music composition from Capliano University in Vancouver. I was very fortunate to study with very accomplished teachers and be surrounded by incredible colleagues. Although my degree holds a jazz title, my interest as a composer has mostly been in the contemporary classical idiom.
In 2015, I was fortunate to be selected for the Highscore music festival in Pavia, Italy. I had the opportunity to have my music performed, present my compositions to peers from around the world, and attend lectures and private lessons with a highly accomplished panel of composers (Helmut Lachenmann, Dmitri Tymozcko, Amy Beth Kirsten, Mario Garuti)
In my life I have been lucky to have been exposed to a huge variety of music. As a child I got taken to big shows by my family through my stepdads position as a sound engineer. As a teen and young adult I was involved with a very tight local scene and spent most of my time practicing and playing in bands. Through all this I got to meet people from all walks of life and learned to appreciate the diversity of how music can be made. I believe that part of being a good educator is being able to relate to people and adjust your approach accordingly, and my range of experience is a huge asset in achieving that. I want people to be comfortable and believe in themselves, even if they do things a little different.
