I work with each individual student to provide an education based around the individual. Everyone's goals are different, especially with music, and I focus on yours. A typical class would begin with some warmups and a review of previous material to ensure constant improvement, moving in to new ideas afterwards and making sure to jam and have some fun! No matter how much time there is in your life for music, it can be accommodated and your goals can be reached with a lesson structure tailored to your specific goals and dreams! First class is offered free as a 30 min assessment class to lay out your goals, after that either half hour or hour classes are available.
I am a professional guitarist and educator with a background in many different styles including rock, jazz, classical, folk, blues, country and many more types of music. I have a degree in music and RCM credentials, a passion for music and an equal passion for music education! My students have won competitions, passed auditions for prestigious schools, and gone on to have performance careers in music. I've worked with groups and individuals of all ages and skill levels, in many different formats including in person, online, in-home, and in post-secondary settings, and have performed with many Canadian and international artists and bands, as well as writing and performing my own music.
