Your Teacher

Mage, NCTM Nationally Certified Teacher of Music •  Music flows through me like blood in my veins. Whether it be jazz, rock, metal, or more, I enjoy, perform, and write in a multitude of genres. I have been ambitious in writing and performing my whole life. In my early years I studied classical piano in the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM). Through those RCM studies I entered my compositions in national songwriting contests and won second place in Canada Music Week. I attended university for music, immersing my life in my music passion. I obtained my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies (Vancouver Island University) and went on to achieve my Master of Fine Arts in Music (California Institute of the Arts). I love teaching all ages. My instruments are guitar, piano, voice, and electric bass. I can also help you with home recording and song composition.

My classes and teaching style

I teach guitar, piano, electric bass, voice, songwriting/composition, audio recording, and music theory. My teaching style is based on this simple philosophy that I refer to as "the 3 Ps": Passion leads to Practice which creates Progress! Students who commence lessons should already have the "spark" for music! 😊
