SSS news / July 1st week 2017
1) ANNOUNCING OUR New Neighbors – sharing the space with us in our scool – the NOVA SCOTIA YOUTH ORCHESTRA. It is with immense pleasure I make this announcement. It was a vision that I had for our school to work more with the NSYO and now that we are sharing our space this will be so much easier to do! They will rehearse 13 friday/saturday night weekends a year, in the Lebanese cultural hall at our School. We will share stands and chairs. The NSYA will perform the entire A minor Vivaldi concerto with them in their final NSYO concert on April 28th/29th. (Save the date for that on your calendars now.)
2) SCOTIA SUZUKI SCHOOL GUITAR, FLUTE and PIANO group days / times will be TBA
3) LUKE FRASER – NEW SUZUKI GUITAR TEACHER – Id like to introduce you to the new Suzuki Guitar Teacher LUKE FRASER. He has a batch of new young students coming in and starting some summer lessons already! Luke will be joining me with his performance expertise as the new assistant with the NSYA and Junior Performance groups. Luke will also be teaching in addition to Suzuki Guitar – adult guitar and Mandolin!
We need your help to fill Luke’s schedule up. Please think of perspective friends and family that you know that would be a perfect fit for Suzuki guitar and our Suzuki community.
