When working with students, it is always my goal to help them to enjoy music as a fulfilling aspect of their lives. At the same time, I believe music provides a wonderful challenge that is beneficial to one’s growth, not only on their chosen instrument or area of focus, but in many character traits and skills which prove applicable in all areas of life. Guiding students along this path of development and catering to their individual interests, personalities, and learning styles is a true passion of mine, and a pursuit I take seriously.
I consider myself a constant student of music, and to me, teaching is just as much a reciprocal experience of sharing information with the student as well as absorbing information from the student. In my experience, this open-minded approach to instruction is key to a dynamic that is genuinely impactful for students. I would be thrilled to share in the learning process of music with you or whoever you are interested in registering for lessons, and promise my full dedication in delivering a high-quality and rewarding experience.
I have studied music theory ad well as numerous styles of guitar playing. For example, I studied classical guitar with Brian McDowell through his private studio for several years, and also attend Humber College for jazz guitar, where I am in my fourth and final year obtaining my Bachelor of Music. At Humber, I have studied with several highly respected guitarists like Lorne Lofsky, Rob Bulger, Jocelyn Gould, and Nathan Hiltz. Of course, I also credit a great deal of my musical education and development to investigating the music I love as part of a self-teaching process.
Over the course of my development as a musician, I have had the chance to share my music with a variety of audiences, have incredible experiences meeting and even working alongside my musical heroes, share knowledge with students, and work closely with incredible mentors. I am a two-time performer at Windsong Music Festival held in Powassan Ontario, and have experience playing regular live shows, having opened for Juno award winners like Joey Landreth and Ian Tamblyn. With regards to education, I have been working with students for a number of years, and have developed a grasp of the skillset required to reach young children as well as adults. Being someone who constantly works on improving on the guitar myself, I find it natural to communicate to others how they might achieve improvement themselves. During my teaching career, I have become adept in implementing thoughtful teaching strategies as well as genuinely connecting with students to help them along their personal path toward their musical goals.
