It is important that my students have a firm understanding of the basic concepts and foundations of music under their belt. What is the importance of Music Theory? What controls the sound on a saxophone, flute, clarinet? My role as an instructor is to provide the basic concepts to my students. I will open the door for my students to seek to a new musical world undiscovered!
You can see their eyes light up and their confidence grow as they finally grasp the concept of 6/8 time and the smile on their face as they finally completed their first recital.
Each student has different needs and different learning styles. As a teacher, it is important for me to understand how I can best be of service to them.
I have recently upgraded my certification as a UMT Elite Educator with Ultimate Music Theory Certification. I have studied with many skilled and talented musicians stemming from: jazz and blues music with saxophone legend Stan Karp to classical and contemporary music with Dr. Julia Nolan, Dr. Bill Street, and Dr. Charles Stolte.

I started playing the piano at 7 years old and I never stopped! I moved onto the guitar in grade 5, performing by grade 7, saxophone in grade 8, and the rest is history! I composed, performed, and recorded a track in grade 12, and started gigging before I started my degree program in university. In university I performed and toured with the King's University College Concert and Chamber Choirs. After my degree I moved back to Vancouver and started teaching. Having run a daycare with my wife for over 10 years and having taught music for 20 year I feel I have a better understanding of what a child's needs are when it comes to learning!
