I'm a young musician who came from another side of the world to pursue music and art professionally. Studying Art in my lifetime taught me a lot that I'd like to share with other students. I always try to give another perception of what most of us see, and dive deeper to music itself and also the philosophical aspect of arts.

I have played different genres of music in different areas of the world, with great musicians. Currently, I play at Ottawa Youth Orchestra, and teach at LaPetiteFanfare.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My creative approach is to illustrate the students how in history, music has been changing and the reasons according to it. Take a look at music since the history when we started to use music.
Activities such as body percussion, rhythmic clapping, silence, drawing music, improvising, etc are offered, as well as making music by picking up random notes by students.

Talking about feelings/emotions in music by listener and by the composer will give a good understanding of the music that we listen. Invite students to not be afraid of be creative, and brave to start and risk, and eventually, create something new. Having an intellectual view of music can help them to find their interest easier in music.

I will play couple songs for them as an example, and also as a fun activity for them as an ice breaker.
