It’s that time of year again. The kids get to share their wonderful music with their peers. I always get such great feedback from this opportunity and have decided to go ahead and do it again.
When: Saturday Nov. 17th, 2012.
Where: Bridge Street Church, behind Canadian Tire http://goo.gl/maps/0qVWu

Time: TBA- it will depend on the number of registrants from across Ottawa. Younger students will be first in the day (9am) while older students will follow (up until 4pm). You will only need to give an hour of your time, so it is as long as a class.
Cost: This is considered a class. There is no additional cost to you. Audience members may choose to make a donation to the Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects.
Why: The Rhythm Festival provides child friendly adjudication and interaction with peers who also take music lessons. Students will get to practice in class for the performance, so they usually don’t get nervous. Music is meant to be shared, and this is a positive place for that first performance to happen.
Saturday classes will not be held in the studio on Nov. 17th as we will be at the festival that day.
This year, adjudicator Leo Brooks of Treefrog Percussion returns to give insight into playing various percussion instruments, and how to enhance your performance. His positive comments and zest for performance was loved by the audience last year.
Please let me know if you have any further questions about the event.
P.S. As mentioned in class, please switch the Rhythm Festival dates from November 24th to November 17th on your calendars; or download the revised calendar (updated Oct. 24th).
