Solar Music Academy is education for the modern musician. With passion and technique, we help you develop your music, your way.

Methodology

Solar Music Academy provides a passionate, practical, and progressive learning environment that is focused on the student's unique needs. We use the music that the student is interested in as a vehicle for core musical, theoretical and technical skill development.

Background

I am a creative and passionate musician who has an extensive background in Jazz music. I have used the music vocabulary that Jazz provides to compose, arrange, and collaborate with many different artists across many different styles and mediums. I value creating meaningful connections with musicians around me, and believe in adding to the cultural landscape through performing, composing, and teaching. I have participated in contemporary and jazz ensembles, done session work with artists, performed in orchestra and theatre pits, and taught for schools and freelance work. I want my work to make a positive impact on the people around me, and I am in constant pursuit of both technical excellence and creative ingenuity.

Solar Music's Resume

PROFESSIONAL MUSIC EXPERIENCE
Teacher, Freelance, May 2018 - Present,
Vancouver, Canada
As a freelance teacher, I am solely responsible for providing a high quality and profitable teaching service that is personalised and beneficial to all of my students. I am solely responsible for the marketing, administration and financial upkeep of this business.

Teacher, Christchurch School of Rock, January 2013 - May 2018,
Christchurch, New Zealand
My role was to create a passion-centric learning environment for primary and high school students. I educated students individually or in small groups. I taught a diverse demographic of children, am responsible for creating personalised curriculums according to the students needs and provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge to further their musical development. Interpersonal skills are of utmost importance when educating children as the personal rapport I developed with my students directly affects their achievements within music.

Performer, Freelance, 2008-Present
As a freelance performer, I am solely responsible for the promotion, distribution tuition and performance of music. As a performer, I would be required to fulfill a wide range of musical roles and be expected to maintain a high level of mastery on my instrument across a broad domain of genres and work with a diverse range of professional performers.


Music Tutor and Councillor, Long Lake Camp for the Arts, 2016,
New York, USA
As a music tutor I would tutor a wide variety of students at different skill levels. I would tailor the lessons to suit their needs and prepare them for performances in a contemporary setting as well as musical theater and orchestral settings. As a Unit leader I was responsible for the physical and emotional well being of the children put under my care. I would liaise with parents and ensure that their requirements and for their children were met with utmost professionalism. As the primary point of contact between parents, students and my superiors - interpersonal communication skills were exercised daily to ensure the well being of the child as well as the Camp and parent’s interests.
