My name is Marty, and I would love to help teach you music! I have a Bachelor's of Music Education from Hastings College and have experience teaching band and vocal students from grades K-12 (US). I have been teaching guitar and bass lessons for about 3 years now, and would love to help you achieve your instrumental goals.

My teaching style is heavily based on inquiry learning. When I give lessons, be prepared to be asked a lot of questions about how you are playing or singing, what you are doing, and what you think is happening. I will give instruction based off of that, and I hope that I can help you achieve your goals.
