Kyle White

Hey! I’m Kyle White, and I’ve been playing music since I was 5, with a focus on guitar for the last 10 years or so. I am proficient in playing and writing many different styles, including jazz, rock, pop, RnB, folk, blues, metal, and hip-hop. I have a bachelor of jazz and contemporary popular music from Macewan university, with a major in composition. I play regularly around Western Canada in a variety of groups ranging from party/ wedding bands to video game cover projects. I’m also an accomplished composer and songwriter who has scored short films and video games.

As a teacher, I emphasize a low stress setting in which the student can explore the guitar in the ways that work best for them. I try to keep learning as fun as possible, because ultimately music is supposed to be a fun experience, rather than a chore. I like to teach guitar using songs that the student is familiar with, while also expanding their repertoire of historically important guitar music. I also place a strong emphasis on making creative use of concepts through improvisation and composition.

I work with my students to develop individual strategies for setting and meeting development goals based on what kind of guitarist they want to be. I’m comfortable teaching everyone from complete beginners to advanced players, and I love answering questions about guitar, songwriting, practicing, or music in general.
