  • Year-End: Group classes will conclude the term on Thurs, June 3. and resume in September. Deposits are due June 7 for Fall 2021. (see below)
  • Private Lessons: Many students are preparing for RCM exams next month! Private instruction will continue over the summer, but of course you can plan a holiday from lessons - just let me know. Group class students can also sign up for weekly lessons or occasional private lessons if you want to learn new songs and stay inspired. Lessons will be offered in-person as soon as provincial guidelines allow. 
  • Summer Music Day Camps are being planned for July and August. At this time, we are expecting to be able to program for a max of 10 campers each week. Please contact me if you are interested in reserving a space. Further information will be released when available.

Virtual Concert Production
I will be recording the Zoom screen for use in our newest video collaborations May 11-13, during regular classes. If you have your camera on, you'll be a part of the video part of the recording just by participating in class. However, this will not allow me to record a group sound. My hope is that each Junior, Senior, Chamber, and & Adult musician will choose to submit their own videos with audio for the project. 

Juniors: Can't Stop the Feeling, Tortoises, Kye Kye Kule
Seniors: Can't Stop the Feeling, Straight Song, Swan, Elephant
Adults: Brown Eyed Girl, Straight Song, Swan, Elephant
Chamber: Always With Me, Straight Song, Aquarium

Step 1:  Choose from the list of songs above and practice playing along with the appropriate YouTube video(s)
Step 2: Record yourself playing along with the YouTube videos. Yes, you will need 2 devices: one to play the YouTube video, and one to record you playing along with it. Headphones are optional.
Step 3: Submit the video(s) to me via Google Drive, Dropbox or WeTransfer.com (easy, free, no app or registration required!)
Musicians are asked to submit Video Homework by Friday, May 21st.
