I believe that teaching is an art that requires careful study. Each individual is different which means that good teaching requires empathy and imagination. It doesn't work to apply the same method to every student; instead my job as a teacher is to find the approach that will work best for you. What will help you the most right now?
Music for me is tied up with creativity. I believe that improvisation is the heart of music: the freedom and joy that comes from play (we call it PLAYING an instrument, after all)! Lack of that joy is what causes so many to quit or lose interest in music. When music becomes a meaningless chore, it dies.
Instead, I always try to put curiosity in the driver's seat: what are you interested in? What excites you about music? I believe that when we follow that drive to explore that techniques and theory come naturally. Joy and curiosity cause us to discipline ourselves, and through self discipline comes freedom.
I learned to play in the context of improvisation and collaboration. My siblings were learning instruments at the same time and before we knew what we were doing we were writing and recording music.
I later attended Rosebud School of the Arts in southern Alberta, where I deepened my musical understanding through various choirs, vocal coaching and courses in music theory.
I also gained valuable performance experience as a dinner musician for Rosebud Theatre, playing music around the dining tables of the Rosebud Mercantile in various bands.
I've recorded two solo albums and an album with my wife as "The Lazy Sundays."
