South Island Studio
Welcome to the 2019-2020 music lesson year!
Lessons Start: Tuesday, September 3, 2019
We are thrilled to be underway with a great roster of teachers welcoming many new and returning students.
In addition to our private lessons on guitar, piano (group and private lessons), voice (group and private lessons), drums, bass, and flute, we also have a number of playing and practicing Workshops, Performances, Camps, and Classes on offer this year.
In order of start date, here is what's coming up in the very near future.
WEDNESDAY September 18, 2019 - Rockshop Band Camps: After school at 3:30 and 4:30 (1 hour rehearsals) A perfect start for youth bands learning fun pop and rock repertoire, current and classic songs. 3:30 Band, ages 11-13, 4:30 Band, ages 14-17. Performance at Winter Concert on December 8. There's nothing better than playing with others to bring practice into focus and to improve musicianship. This weekly 1 hr rehearsal pacts a lot into it and gives students an opportunity to learn new music together, improve listening, work in a group, learn how to choose music that's suitable and challenging, and have a great time in the process. Please contact Lonny or Renn at firstname.lastname@example.org to register!
SUNDAY September 22, 2019 from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM - The Goddess Sings Vocal Workshop: A delightfully harmonic singing opportunity for experienced and non-experienced singers alike. Led by Kim Denness-Thomas, come make carefree music and vocalise together in a safe and supportive space. Join this lovely group to get reacquainted with your voice-body connection, shake out the cobwebs, and boost your power and energy from deep within your soul. This workshop is $30 for 2 hours of instruction, and includes a light snack. Please contact Lonny or Renn at email@example.com to register!
SATURDAY September 28, 2019 - Blues Guitar Study Group and Jam with Paul Mowbray from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM: Come learn new repertoire and play together with a great group of players. We learn the new material slowly, and always cover some interesting music and music history. A great morning of music making, both acoustic and electric guitars are welcome! Please contact Lonny or Renn at firstname.lastname@example.org to register!
SUNDAY September 29, 2019 - Imagine Cafe Student Showcase at 2:00 PM: Our Student Showcases (always the last Sunday of the month) offer an opportunity for students to play in a beautiful little cafe, in a warm, inclusive, and safe environment while their family and friends sit back, listen, and indulge in some lovely treats and coffee. It is always beneficial to play for others, and these Showcases are a wonderful way for students to practice performing and gain experience in that realm. It's quite a delight for all involved! Please ask your teacher for more information to help you decide on which piece or two to play. You can also check the website, southislandstudio.com. Times and info are on the Homepage.
Please let us know if you have any questions and are interested in any of the upcoming opportunities.
From all teachers and staff here at South Island Studio, see you soon, and once again, welcome to this new season.
Lonny, Renn, and the South Island Studio Family
