My goal is to give my clients first class professionalism
Born and raised in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, I first picked up the guitar at age 15.
I spent the next two years learning as much as I could about playing electric and acoustic guitar. I began classical guitar lessons with Acadia University professor Eugene Cormier.
A year later, I won the top prize – the Senior Rose Bowl – in the Corner Brook Rotary Music Festival. I am the only classical guitarist to ever win the award usually dominated by vocalists and pianists. This event marks a significant place in my development and passion for playing classical guitar.
I have a degree in Classical Guitar from Acadia University, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Performance from the Koblenz International Guitar Academy in Germany.
• Five time winner of Senior & Outstanding Guitar at the Annapolis Valley Music Festival
• Four time winner of the Nova Scotia Provincial Music Festival, Guitar category
• 2nd place at the Canadian National Music Festival in 2009
I have attended several guitar festivals both in Canada and Germany over the last few years and had the privilege of attending masterclasses with some of the world’s leading guitar players and teachers.
I currently spend my time teaching out of my studio in Kentville, Nova Scotia and performing for various events throughout the Annapolis Valley and across the Maritimes.
In addition to solo playing, I play in a trio with Bossa Nova Scotia, and Flamenco en Rouge.
