I am a professional guitar instructor, with over 8 years of teaching experience, through accredited music schools as well as my own home studio.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Humber College, one of Canada's most highly acclaimed music schools, and before that I was entirely self-taught. Because of the interesting way that my learning of music progressed, I gained an interesting perspective in how I teach music, capable of adapting my approach to suit the student's learning style.
I have an INFP (mediator) personality, which lends itself well to understanding what others are going through, and solving problems in a way that is suitable, and this obviously lends itself well to teaching. Whenever I have taken a position as a music instructor, the students started out unsure of me, and many seemed as if they didn't even particularly enjoy learning, but in just a short amount of time, these students became not only more skilled, but also more inspired.
I have been told that my calm nature, warm smile, and non-judgemental approach make students feel comfortable, and in much the same way, my passion for music and skill at teaching make students become noticeably more interested in learning.
I am well-versed in multiple genres, so whether you are looking to learn electric guitar or acoustic, pop or jazz, or anything in between, you are in good hands with me!
In my spare time, I enjoy staying physically fit by jogging, hiking, swimming, and doing martial arts.
I am an avid anime fan, and actually was inspired to learn guitar because of an anime called "Beck".
