I began my music teaching career at Fortune Consolidated School in rural Prince Edward Island and now teach K-6 music at Montague Consolidated School in Prince Edward Island. There I lead a grades 4-6 choir, 2 rock bands, a guitar program, and act as musical director for various productions at the school. My passion for integrating rock bands into the elementary school setting led to the founding of the annual "Rock-a-palooza: PEI Schools of Rock Showcase" event in Prince Edward Island. As well, I have published articles in the Canadian Music Educator Journal on the topics of creativity as well as teaching rock bands in schools. As of 2018, I am a regular columnist in the Canadian Music Educator Journal, writing on the theory and practice of popular music education. My award-winning book, "Rock Coach: A Practical Guide for Teaching Rock Bands in Schools," is available on Amazon.com and .ca.
