New practice links and info re: keeping your instrument for the summer!
THANK YOU! ... for your support during these challenging times. I know it hasn't been easy for any of us to transition to online distance learning. I appreciate your efforts to stay involved with the strings program at Bel Canto, and I am so proud of the progress and commitment I have seen from our learners (and helpful families!).
If you have fallen "behind" in the online tutorials, don't fret. Keep playing your favourite old songs! Or skip ahead to something new (try another levels' playlist!). You can access all the spring videos at your own pace over the summer, and we will begin new music in-person together in the fall, and I am sure you won't miss a beat!
I hope music is bringing your family joy at home and I am eager to make music with you in person again soon. In the meantime we have 3 more weeks of spring classes and I can't wait to see what we can do!
Fall Registration for our String Orchestra & Guitar Band programs is now open. Registration is due by June 15th in order to keep your instrument over the summer. You can choose to provide the $55 deposit only at this time with the balance paid in the fall, or you can provide the full fee now (same amount as last year). Just click the blue button below, and select your registration choice. If you would prefer etransfer over a credit card payment, please direct it to email@example.com. Cheques can be sent via postal mail to Bel Canto Strings, 608 Upper James St, Hamilton, On L9C 2Y8.
Fall 2020 classes will begin Sept 14, in accordance to health recommendations at the time. When we are allowed to meet in person, class sizes will be restricted to small numbers with health precautions in place, and larger orchestra classes will not resume until a vaccine is widely available.
Private lessons will still be offered over the summer. You can choose weekly lessons or occasional lessons if you just want to learn a new song or two to stay inspired at home.
Summer Camp is on hold at this time, but may be offered in reduced #s depending on provincial guidelines and health precautions for all.
NOTE: This week's YouTube Orchestra tutorials include the instructions for your video homework! Please submit all video homework by Saturday at 5pm.
