Hello from a distance, musicians!
The studio is closed to support the recommended social distancing to level the curve of COVID-19. But we can still make music together! I hope you will keep up the practicing - we need the emotional & creative outlet, distraction from stress, and educational benefits that music provides even more these days.
Let's stay connected! Send me your art, theory homework, a photo of you practicing, or a quick note. And don't forget to follow our Social Media accounts for updates: Facebook Twitter Instagram. You can also watch the concert videos from StringsFest on our YouTube channel.
1. Livestream Video Private Lessons
Live video lessons are now being offered via Zoom. Visit zoom.us to download the free app and create a free account. It's very simple! You will be sent a link via email to "join" your lesson meeting with your teacher at your scheduled lesson time. Regular lesson fees apply. All private students are encouraged to keep up their learning in this way! Please contact Jennifer via email or text to arrange your new weekly lesson time ASAP.
2. Free Online Practice Videos and Sheet Music
Your teachers have prepared new sheet music and practice videos for all of our Orchestra and Guitar Band students. YouTube links and Sheet Music downloads can be found below. New videos will be posted weekly on YouTube as long as we are all apart. You will be able to access these for free at your convenience. Enjoy!

3. Personal Video & Music Requests
Is there a special song you'd like to learn to play? From your favourite movie or tv show or a pop artist you love? Or would you like a recorded lesson instead of a live lesson?
- $25/new sheet music, by request, edited with bowings/fingering just for you + a practice video to listen to at home and play along with for guidance.
- You can also schedule a private lesson to learn the song live with your teacher via Zoom.
