Victoria's Resume

About Me
I am a hard-working, honest, helpful individual and am very reliable. I have experience working both as a team leader and a team member and enjoy working through new challenges. I am happy working individually as well as in a group and accomplish every task to the best of my ability. I am passionate in any and all work that I do as I always strive to be proud of my efforts, regardless of the output and medium. I am an artist as well as a logical/methodical person and enjoy creative solutions while staying within realistic criteria.



Music Experience and Past Employment
Musician in the Canadian Armed Forces 2016-Present
I have been a musician with the CAF since 2016, and have done a wide array of gigs with Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal in Montreal, the Band of the Ceremonial Guard in Ottawa, and La Musique du Royal 22e Régiment in Québec. I have played in army bands for a number of special events such as Canada Day, Remembrance Day, the visit of Prince Charles to Canada in the Summer of 2017, and have played events for the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau and former Governor General David Johnston. I have been honoured to play the last post at numerous military events, and at the National Military Cemetery in Ottawa. I have been also working as an assistant music librarian for my ensemble since 2018.
Freelance Musician 2014-Present
I have played gigs in and around both Vancouver and Montreal of various genres on both trumpet, and piano. In Montreal, I have played at venues such as La Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier and at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. I play regularly with the Liberté Big Band in Montreal, and have been interviewed on CBC Radio One discussing issues related to trumpet, jazz and sexism in the music industry.
Private Piano and Trumpet Instructor 2009-Present
For seven years in Vancouver, I taught students varying from age 5-50 from beginner levels to intermediate/advanced. I had much practice in adapting my teaching methods to fit the needs of each individual student and altering my teaching style to cater to their own way of learning, while continuing to provide a high quality education. I currently teach private lessons (piano and trumpet) at the Montreal Academy of Music, and out of my own private studio.
Public School Trumpet Instructor 2015-2016, 2019-2020
I worked one-on-one and in a group setting with young teenagers during an after-school jazz program at Royal Vale School. Ran sectionals, and used various teaching techniques to help beginner students with the jazz idiom. I also taught at Miss Edgar and Miss Cramp’s School, giving specialist group lessons to young trumpet players.





Education
Bachelor of Music, Major in Jazz Performance (McGill University) 2015-2019
I completed my Bachelor of Music at McGill University in December 2019, with a minor in Business Management. In 2016 I received the David Nutting Award and in 2017 the Schulich Scholarship. I played in a number of large and small ensembles at McGill including McGill Jazz I and II, Chamber Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Beethoven Orchestra, combos and a brass quintet. I was also a member of the McGill Jazz Area Equity Committee from 2018-2019.


New Westminster Secondary School Diploma 2015
I attended New Westminster Secondary School from 2011-2015. I studied French Immersion from grades 1-12, and have a Dual Dogwood high school diploma in both English and French.







Skills and Qualifications
RCM Grade 9 – Piano
Fluent in both English and French
I was awarded numerous scholarships in high school including the Fraser MacPherson Scholarship, the TDHSJI Scholarship and several scholarships from my high school. I was also a member of several honour bands, including the MusicFest National Jazz Band, the TDHSJI Big Band and the BCMEA Jazz Ensemble
Member of the Golden Key International Honour Society
Holding a valid class 5 Quebec Driver’s Licence
I have been awarded the Canada Cord and the Chief Commissioner’s Gold Award by Girl Guides of Canada

Victoria is a beautiful player and a great team player! She has encouraged and motivated me as a fellow musician in the most positive way. She's a great asset to the band, and we are truly lucky to have her for her positive attitude and her hard working nature.

Victoria is an extremely punctual and by-the-book person while still maintaining a great rapport with anyone she meets. Victoria would make a great teacher for someone interested in becoming a better musician and to find passion in playing music.
