Guitar - Bass - Ukulele - Drums - Home Recording and Production
Hello! Welcome to the lessons page of my website! I specialize in providing fun and engaging music lessons for all ages, drawing from my own experience in multiple musical ventures and my background as a multi-instrumentalist. If you are looking for an enjoyable introduction to playing music, want to play in a band or around the campfire, or are interested in getting started with home recording and production, feel free to contact me for more information regarding rates, dates, and location.
I started by giving lessons to my friends, with the sole purpose of getting them to a point that they could then jam with me. From 2012 to 2014 I settled in Stratford Ontario and gave lessons at the Long and McQuades in both Stratford and Woodstock, building up a large and diverse group of students and developing my teaching style. I taught at the Regent Park School of Music in Toronto from 2015 to 2018, leading guitar groups and ensembles, teaching private lessons to kids with special needs, and helping develop several programs, including Pianimators and our collaboration with Turning Point Youth Services. While living in Toronto I also taught a seniors ukulele group at Oak Ridges Ridges Community Centre, which grew from 1 class of eight students to 3 classes with over 25 students.
Currently I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and teach music at the Dartmouth Long and McQuade, in addition to a night a week at Moe’s Place Music School in Windsor.
