Welcome to my site in the Fine Arts Department at Grande Prairie Regional College
These pages exist to help current and prospective students learn more about the courses I teach, and to improve their skills as students.
In 2012-2013 I am teaching courses in percussion, popular music, world music, music appreciation, introductory music theory, and electronic notation. This year, MU2640 (A.K.A. “Topics in Popular Music”) is a course about Canadian Popular Music.
In past years, I have taught more advanced music theory, music history, jazz ensemble, and also indoor rock climbing (for the Phys Ed and Kinesiology Department).
I regularly take students to Europe during spring session in May to experience concerts, galleries, and culture; in recent years we have visited London, Paris, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Ravenna, Rome, Prague, and Vienna. You can view some photos from those trips on the ID2010 page. The trip this past spring (May 2012) was to Rome, Florence, and Venice.
Spring 2013 will be a trip to London and Paris; contact me for details.
