About

I have been teaching piano, trumpet and other brass instruments for 15 years to students of all ages and skill levels.  I have been playing piano for most of my life.  I am classical trained but play rock, jazz, blues/gospel and pop styles.  I have played in many weddings, small ensembles, rock/pop bands and accompanied various artists throughout my piano performing career. 

In 2005,  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music in trumpet performance from Trinity Western University (TWU) in Langley, BC, Canada.  Since then I have played prinicipal trumpet in the TWU Orchestra, on-call trumpet player for the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra, Bruce James Orchestra and resident play for 7 years for the Moonliters Big  Band.  I have played for various dixieland jazz groups such as the Jenn Hodge All Stars, First Avenue Hot Six and various other groups.  In 2012, I received a music teaching degree from University of British Columbia and I am currently a band and elementary music classroom teacher.

 

I want my students to learn their instrument well and feel good about it every lesson.  I have prepared students for university auditions, Royal Conservatory exams and recitals.  I have also taught beginning band students how to become better at their instrument so they can be successful in school band.  Overall,  I have high but reasonable expectations for my students.  I always find something that my students can relate to (music, stories, etc.) to help them learn and advance on their instrument so they can have a fun and positive lesson time.
