I am Mage, a songwriter, performer, and music teacher based in the Antelope Valley, CA. I sing and play guitar, piano, and bass. I currently hold a Master of Fine Arts, Performer-Composer from the Herb Alpert School of Music at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from Vancouver Island University (VIU). I am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music through the Music Teachers National Association. I also have an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician credential in both software and hardware.
Since my early life I have always had an immense passion for music that continues to thrive today. My early participation in songwriting competitions including the Canada Music Week Writing Competition led me to achieve second place in the country for my composition “Flower of Lies.”
These days I am teaching (guitar, electric bass, piano, voice, home recording, and songwriting/composition), performing, recording, and writing music. I continue to write and perform my original music which can vary from extreme metal to jazz to pop and other genres in between.
Thanks for checking out my music!
