Dear students and parents,
I hope the autumn has been cruising along nicely for you. Here are a few dates and workshops coming in the near future.
Nov 11 and 13: We are open for lessons on Remembrance Days (Sat and Mon).
Sat, Nov 25 - Blues Guitar Study Group and Jam w/ Paul Mowbray - 10:00 - 12 Noon Email to enroll in this fun 2 hr session on blues guitar.
Sun Nov 26 - Imagine Cafe Student Showcase! A showcase of students getting up to play a song or two with their teacher or solo. Imagine Cafe in James Bay, 31 Erie St. It's a great place to see what other students are up too, have a yummy treat with your coffee or tea, and relax for an hour of great music. This is the last open mic for 2017, in January we'll resume with these showcases on the last Sunday of each month.
Here's some film of the Oct showcase: https://youtu.be/aHyVbhCKw4E
Sun Dec 3 - Winter Concert - 2:00 PM This is an opportunity for students to share a piece on a bit grander scale. Our casual and friendly presentation emphasizes a positive experience for students and a lovely time for parents, grandparents, and friends to hear what their people are up to in music lessons. All students are offered the opportunity, but only those who tell us they're ready and feel comfortable to share are up on stage. For those who are curious about what it looks like, we love to see you take in the concert as a guest, thereby getting a feel for the format and for what other students are singing and playing. It's open for all students to attend, so chat with your teacher about what you're working on and if you'd like to share it with us, or just watch this time, either is fine. In addition, there are two concerts in the Spring, on June 10 and 17, so lots of time to get ready for it if you do want to share some music this year. Concert Location: St Matthias Chuch HALL www.southislandstudio.com/locations
