I am a composer and producer who creates live and recorded music for concert performance and various multimedia projects.

I have just returned from three wonderful years in Amsterdam in order to begin Ph.D. in composition at York University. I am taking my first steps into the world of private tuition, but I have myself been taught by world-class composers (including the former composer laureate of the Netherlands and a winner of the world-renowned Grawemeyer Award).

I look forward to passing on the skills and experiences I gained whilst studying abroad. I will aim to provide a unique and personalized approach to music tuition, as I myself have experienced from my wonderful teachers in Amsterdam. Individuality is the key ingredient to being a musician in today's world, and I will endeavor to help my students find their own voice.

My lessons will be focused but friendly and aim to bring out the best in the student.
