Our dream has always been to create a community space for the enjoyment of music. One of the things that excites us is that each time a new student walks through the door there are wonderful possibilities to be explored and achieved.
Michael Burnyeat one of our fiddle teachers came to us when he was ten years old for lessons and is now the current BC Fiddle champion. Jocelyn Pettit came to my fiddle jams when she was nine years old and is now a successful touring musician and studying music in Scotland. This is one side of the dream possibilities.
The other side is a woman Murial Harris who came to us at sixty seven with no prior musical background started on the harp and ten years later at seventy seven is an integral part of our Thursday night music jam sessions.
The dream is to provide a warm and supportive space that will enable any one coming through the door to fully enjoy those wonderful moments of joy that suffuse our souls through playing music.
