Francisco Ibarra

<- Our Teachers[/button]

With a degree in jazz studies from Capilano University, and a music diploma from VCC, Francisco has played music for over 30 years, and taught for over 12. At Lynn Valley Music, he teaches the guitar, ukulele, and bass, but also enjoys playing the piano, trombone, saxophone, flute and drums. Francisco teaches his students that music is beautiful and powerful, and in turn they have taught him that not only is it a serious art, but can be a lot of fun too.

Like many of the other teachers at Lynn Valley Music, Francisco offers to bring his multilingualism into his lessons, being fluent in Spanish and English.

Aside from playing his favourite instrument, the guitar, Francisco also enjoys fixing them. His favourite music genre is jazz, and favourite artist is Pat Metheny.
