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!
The "classical" music-theory tradition has long provided practical skills to aspiring composers, and I view theory and composition as inextricably bound up. Likewise, both traditional composition and electronic music-making rely on strong ear-training skills, so musicianship is a part of everything I teach.

I am a composer and sound designer originally from Ottawa. I recently moved to Vancouver after living in Montreal for several years, and am currently a studying in SFU's Interdisciplinary Master's program, where I concentrate on making electronic and mixed live/electronic compositions. Outside of the concert music world, I have an abiding interest in songwriting and have lately been experimenting with various studio recording techniques.
I don't own a car or a house with a piano in it, so I will travel to you by means of public transit. If you live outside the city, this may present difficulties!
