Back To School

This week marked the start of a new chapter for me. I began classes at the University of British Columbia in the education program. In 12 months I will (hopefully) be the proud holder of a shiny new B.Ed degree, with my focus being music education for students in secondary school.

The transition has already been difficult; having to say goodbye to most of my private students was not easy. I'm also not looking forward to likely needing to turn down some gigs, although I will of course continue to perform as much as I can reasonably manage.

By all accounts this program is one that will keep be very busy, but I'm looking forward to learning lots as I embark on this new part of my music career.

2016 summer update

Lots of exciting gigs so far this summer and still more to come. Los Furios has some busy months ahead of us including the Legends Valley Music Festival on Vancouver Island, the Surrey Reggae Festival, and Non-Stop Ska Festival in Mexico City. More to be announced soon.

On another note, I will be going back to school this September for my B.Ed at UBC. I will continue to gig as much as possible during and after my program, but my private teaching practice will be reduced during the next year as I make time for my own educational commitments.

This is a brand new project I'm involved in. It is experimental Big Band music composed by my former Ivy League Brawlers bandmate Mike Allen. 5 saxophones, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 2 guitarists, 2 drummers, with keyboards and bass to round everything out. Things will be crazy, loud, and unforgettable. You might want to bring ear plugs.
