  About Me
I have many years experience working with children. From a professional viewpoint, I have been a successful and effective private music teacher for 36 years. (I currently teach 15-20 private students, which is about half what I would teach in a normal year. COVID has had a big impact on music teachers everywhere. ) The majority of my students are aged 6-16; but I have taught individual and group lessons to children as young as 3. I have a Graduate Diploma in Education (qualified as a high-school Music and French teacher in Australia); and am well-formed in educational philosophy and practice. In my life-long role as a church musician and music director, I have worked with children at all stages of life; and also have volunteered in vacation outreach clubs, as a camp counsellor, Sunday School teacher, etc.

Finally - but most importantly - I am proud to say I have raised three amazing young people (now aged 19, 17 & 13); who are compassionate, hard-working, and well-balanced in their approach to life. My wife and I shared the role of parenting our children, as we both worked part-time while they were growing up. I have tons of experience in preparing nutritional meals and snacks, arranging fun and stimlating outings; managing daily routines & schedules (with a mix of physical activity, intellectual stimulation, creative & artistic expression, and down-time); maintaining good behaviour and boundaries; keeping them safe and healthy; etc. And as a parent, I know what it means to entrust precious young lives to another person's care. You can be fully assured I will fulfil my role as caregiver with the utmost diligence and dedication.

In this time of job cutbacks and change in so many people's lives, I am looking for additional employment opportunities to supplement my (reduced) music teaching and church music income. I am healthy, energetic, motivated, and available for full-time work. (Other jobs are part-time, evening work. ) I would be honoured if you would consider me for a caregiving role in the life of your child/children.

Claire Samson 
I was piano teacher to Claire's 3 daughters when they were growing up (and am still her teacher). She can speak to my capacities in interacting with children (in English and French), and her confidence in me as someone to whom she can entrust the care of her children. 
Rev. Melodee Lovering 
Melodee was the Pastor of Youth and Family Ministries at Parkdale United Church until Oct. 2018. I worked with her as a colleague (in music and arts ministries). She can speak to my capacities in interacting with children and youth; the way I parented my own children; and my professionalism and reliability.
