Teaching Approach and Lesson Topics:
When it comes to beginner students and especially children, I focus on making each lesson fun and interesting to develop a love for the instrument. I want my students to look forward to each lesson. For older and more advanced students, I keep an open mind and listen carefully for what they want to achieve from lessons.
Teaching isn’t just about a transference of knowledge. My job is also to inspire.
My education in music began at the age of 13 with my first private guitar teacher. At 16 I began to work as a student-teacher. My mentor encouraged my love for music and guided me through a 2-year guitar pedagogy course that had me teach several students per week while also achieving a Grade 5 level in classical guitar.
After high school, I attended Malaspina University College to study Jazz music. After 3 years at Malaspina, I was offered a teaching position at the Powell River Academy of Music where I taught for 10 years before moving to Montreal in 2009.
