With over 11 years experience teaching piano, and 9 years teaching vocals, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with over 100 students from all walks of life.
My piano background is a bit of a stylistic journey. I have been playing piano for over 20 years, and have played classical piano within the Royal Conservatory of Music, and jazz piano/contemporary piano improvisation at York University as part of my Undergraduate degree. I later went back to York U to complete my Master of Arts, focusing on digital music composition.
I have also played keyboards in many acts, including the Hip Hop group "Mad Collab", under my electronic stage name "Seizures Palace", and in the funk-rock band "Cool Man Cool". Cool Man Cool has had the opportunity to open for bands such as Keys N Krates, and Pharrell Williams' rap Group N.E.R.D.
Within Cool Man Cool I also sing and compose music ranging between rock, funk, pop, ska, reggae, latin, jazz, and hip hop. Although those are my stylistic preferences, I have also taught singing styles ranging from musical theatre to fry screaming (any metal heads out there?) My focus as a vocal teacher is to extend students' range and dynamics, as well as equip them with a strong musical ear, through ear training exercises, to help correct any issues with their pitch.
