Find out how I can help you
take your music to the next level
I’m a Vancouver-based music entrepreneur, blogger, multi-instrumentalist, educator, and performer.
I have a passion for making music, teaching, and helping. My goal is simple:
To help musicians just like you get to where you want to be.
WHO AM I?
Music is my life and my livelihood, and I absolutely love it. I earned an undergraduate degree in music education and a master’s in music performance. I perform all over the country in a variety of different settings, from solo gigs to funk bands to orchestras.
I’ve always loved sharing knowledge and ideas. I teach private lessons, I’ve managed an award-winning music academy, and I coach many bands and musical groups. I’ve had a lot of great mentors along the way. Passing on that knowledge is really important to me.
Successful musicians don’t sit and wait for opportunities to come their way. They make opportunities for themselves. I offer artist development, career coaching, and social media and marketing strategies to everyone from beginner musicians to seasoned pros.
