Music is a part of everyones life. Music is something that when gone we will feel its void. Everyone who has any interest in music, whether it be as a profession or as a hobby, should have the chance to learn, experiment and create. Education should be seen as a tool to help guide one to their own individual goals and something that can be an environment to experiment and learn but most importantly have fun. Music is one of the most creative forms of the arts and should be taught in the same way. It is important to demonstrate that music is meant to be interpreted and everyone will have a different emotional reaction to it, so when bringing that into education, it is important to recognize this and implement it in a way that can still have critical assessment for growth but to not take away the creative possibilities of music and the message that there is no objective right or wrong way but only ones personal opinion and goals.
I have a BA in performance and composition from Capilano University's jazz music program, which included classes such as ensemble practice, composition and arranging, private instrumental practice, improvisation as well as ear training and theory. I started studying music at the age of nine when I began guitar lessons. As I continued to learn the many styles of music and techniques of the guitar as well as expanding my knowledge of theory and ear training, I began teaching myself other instruments like piano, bass and drums. During my time at high school I studied with the music teacher there continuing my theory and instrumental studies alongside further music history knowledge. At Capilano University I studied jazz guitar privately with Ron Samworth and Piano with Chris Sigerson. Along with my education, I also have a well rounded experience of performing and writing music professionally.
Most of my life has been surrounded by music as my father has been a performing musician for much of his life as well as my grandma and extended family. I learned a lot about music and various artists and styles as a young child through my family and it helped round out my musical knowledge own personal choices and style musically. I have an extensive resume of experience in the performing industry coming from my teenage years into my adult life. Some of those performances range from performing with the worship band at church, performing for a food drive charity and cancer fundraiser to various venues with various bands and artists around British Columbia. I also have experience in arranging and composing in many genres and styles from small ensemble jazz, big band jazz, rock, pop, folk, soul, funk and classical. All this experience adds to my education experience and teaching as I can pull many kinds of musical experiences from all sides.
