The first lesson is always a trial lesson.
If for any reason you are not happy we will fully refund any pending charges or help you find a new teacher. Your choice!
I teach every student with them as an individual in mind, rather than the "cookie-cutter" method. I enjoy the challenge of catering each lesson to the unique obstacles that each saxophonist-in-the-making faces. As a lover of music, it is a wonderful opportunity to inspire the curiosity and passion of music in aspiring musicians. One of the greatest compliments as an instructor that I receive on a regular basis is that after a student has been "teacher shopping", they have decided to choose me as their instructor, having enjoyed their first lessons with me and leaving with a true sense of success and inspiration.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the University of British Columbia, where I studied with wonderful instructors and had the privilege of working in unique, professional musical environments.
I first played the saxophone when I was eleven years old and since then, I haven't been able to put it down. Although classically trained, I draw my influences from many genres and talented individuals from all around the world. I've been teaching saxophone for about five years now, and as a young instructor, it is easy for me to relate to my students of all ages. Teaching is the most enjoyable way that I've been able to apply what I learned from my time at UBC. The ability to pass on the skills and knowledge of playing an instrument is a true source of joy and learning, as every student has had something to teach me as well.
No question is a silly question! And no discussion about music is a waste of time! As a teacher, I love hearing where students draw their musical inspirations from and where they see music taking them in the future.
