I begin by teaching basic chord structure of the 3 most simple yet most important chords (G, C & D) to get students playing songs they love as soon as possible. From there, I allow the student to direct the lessons, one direction being towards music theory, scales, chord construction and songwriting, a 2nd towards learning to play your favorite songs, licks or riffs/licks to "jam" along with friends. I can also teach students how to record, edit, and mix their songs using recording software such as garage band.
Queen's University B.A. Athabasca University M.A.. Guitar teacher with Cosmo school of music in Richmond Hill (3 years) and Deep Cove Music in North Vancouver (4 years). House musician at the Elephant Walk Pub in Vancouver, sound engineer at Malone's pub Vancouver.
Cancellations require 1 week's notice (barring unforeseen circumstances). I find 30 min lessons work best ($20/30min). 45 min or 1 hr lessons are possible for more mature or advanced students.
