My formal training is that of a piano pedagogue sending students for the exams of The Royal Conservatory of Music, however in addition to my career teaching I have trained as a media music composer and orchestrator. I’ve been working as a professional music instructor for over 21 years operating my own successful music education company Bach To Basics Inc., and its recent divisions Listening Edge Records, Illustrious Sound, Trevor Baron Music and Up-Tempo Publishing. I’ve studied music with The Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto, The Alberta College Conservatory of Music of Edmonton, and have attended courses from the Grant MacEwan music department in theory and performance. I studied media composition and orchestration through the extension school of Berklee College of Music in Boston and Thinkspace Education, and concert composition through The Open College of the Arts based in the UK. As a believer in life long learning I’m continually seeking out new opportunities to improve my skills and knowledge through ongoing professional development. As a composer and educator I’m more than happy to share with students the experience and knowledge I’ve gained while further developing my own skills in theory, composition and orchestration.
