I believe there’s always something new to learn when you’re practicing music, whether you’ve been playing the guitar for years or you’ve just decided to pick it up.

Our classes will consist on deep explorations of everything the guitar has to offer, focusing on learning proper technique, musical vocabulary (chords, scales, etc.), repertoire chosen by the student, sight reading, and applying music theory concepts to your playing.

Among other things we will also study musical theory, ear training, and learn to appreciate different genres of music, as well as what to listen for when listening to music.

Sharing the music you like is encouraged, so that I can properly tailor our lessons to your interests. My classes are fun and dynamic, we’ll have jams and listening sessions, all geared towards an active development of your skills as a musician.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you and to help you achieve all your musical goals!

I’m a fourth year music student enrolled in the Capilano University Jazz Performance and Composition program who is currently majoring in guitar, composition, and arranging.

I have been playing guitar for 10+ years, with experience on multiple genres such as jazz, blues, rock, funk, and latin.

I’ve studied with great musicians such as 2 time Latin Grammy Nominee Francisco Avellaneda, Bill Coon, Ron Samworth, John Korsrud, and Bradshaw Pack.

I’m passionate about all aspects of music, be it music theory, composition, performance, arranging, or improvising.

Hopefully I will get to share this passion with you!
