As well as instructing the VIPG's new Chamber Ensemble in a 16 person version of Handel's Messiah.
He has taught voice for 11 years and trumpet for 4. His instruction has allowed students to not only move forward in the RCM program but move on to greater study opportunities at either the UVic School of Music or the Victoria Conservatory of Music. He is versed in many genres and styles of music outside of the classical and operatic realms. Shows a clear understanding of the Alexander Technique, proper vocal training, diction of other languages, and the biology of the voice itself. Not afraid to learn he is always reading, studying, and developing under those who are ahead of him. While at the same time giving all he can to those who will listen.
