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 musical concepts and the smile on their face as they finally complete their first recital, composition, or theory exam.
Each student has different needs and different learning styles. As a teacher, it is important for me to understand how I can help them best.
I have recently upgraded my certification as a UMTC Elite Educator with Ultimate Music Theory Certification. I have studied with many skilled and talented musicians stemming from jazz and blues music on saxophone with 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!
