Guitar and Drum Teacher
Blair is a guitarist, drummer, vocalist, and songwriter of over twenty years. He has performed on more than forty professional recordings, and toured internationally in over ten bands of varying genres. He is also the recipient of the Best Breakout Artist Award (Edmonton Folk Festival), and Best Original Song In A Music Video Award (Vancouver International Film Festival). In recent years, Blair’s role as a musician is largely centered around composition for other artists, and for film and TV. The objective for Blair has always been to establish a very solid technique and a trained ear in order to allow his focus in a live setting to be on musicality, and engaging with the audience.
Now, with over 7 years of teaching experience, Blair has developed a curriculum that aims to build his students into proficient and entertaining songwriters. Given that songwriting is quite an emotionally driven pursuit, Blair establishes strong connections with his students in order to build trust, often teaching them for four to five consecutive years. His students range from children to adults, and include all skill levels.
