This past Saturday, I found myself staying up until 3:30am in the morning working on the Violetta Parra piece called “Gracias a la vida”.  The challenge with this piece is that I don’t have any sheet music for it, so I'm having to learn it by watching the YouTube video...

I have 5 months left…  That might seem like a lot of time to people in terms of preparing for a concert but based on the learning gap and expectations I have on myself, I’m really starting to freak out.  My guitar will be ready in December, and I want nothing more than...

Lately this has all been a pain in the neck…no seriously, I've been getting this shooting pain at the back of my neck.  Initially, I really thought nothing of it.  I’m a pretty active guy, playing tennis and working out regularly, but I usually don’t get this kind of p...

What a rush!  Our voting week for Telus STORYHIVE’s Documentary Series is behind us, and what an amazing experience.  I’ve never felt so close to the project and felt so much responsibility to give this project everything I can.  The amount of support and love we’ve re...

Chalk up another week of 3 hours/day of practicing!!!  Yay! In between my 9-5, taking care of kids, spending time with my wife, cleaning the house, hitting the gym, and of course… sleep, I’ve managed to stay consistent.  It’s all about planning the day and prioritizing...

This has been a great week getting back on track with practicing.  I’ve found ways to get at least 3 hours of practicing a day all week WITHOUT staying up too late.  Remember that old routine of finishing practicing at midnight or even 1am, well it simply wasn’t sustai...

Last week was an absolute grind.  Fresh off the successful AFA grant notification, I literally spent almost 2-3 hours a day practicing.  My nightly routine would consist of:

  • Around 7:30pm-9pm: Get the kids in bed, work our Instagram account while I wait for the...

I was super excited about a new technique I learned while struggling through the Albeniz last week.  There is this one section that requires extended bar chord positions in my left hand that I’ve ALWAYS struggled with.  It involves pressing down all of the strings at o...

I miss playing full pieces from beginning to end.  After weeks of learning notes, breaking up pieces into manageable parts, drilling then repeating over and over, I really miss the feeling of musicality when you aren’t learning notes any more, and I can just close my e...

I’ve been using my phone to “selfie-record” myself playing.  The aim is to give our followers a taste of some of the music I’m learning.   I’m also hoping that months from now, I’ll be able to see the progress and show that all this work is paying off.  It’s funny thou...
