Band Class Basics with Isaac Mazer

How do I join my local band program? What instruments can I choose from? Do I have to know how to play an instrument? Can I try an instrument before I choose one? What will band class be like? If you or your child is thinking about joining band then we can help them answer all of these questions they might be asking! Come join our local band enthusiasts for an evening of Band Basics, instrument demonstrations, and question/answer period.

Guitar Maintenance 101 with Andrew Smith

So your guitar is new and shiny and all you want to do is get home and play it. We never want that feeling to go away! But, if you’re stumped on how to keep your instrument looking good and in good playing condition, or you don’t quite understand all your instrument’s features, or what all those accessories are actually for, then join us in the Lesson Centre to find out how! Topics include tuning and restringing, cleaning and care, how to monitor the affects of humidity and how to avoid typical pitfalls all while enhancing the experience of guitar ownership. Although this is a clinic primarily targeted for beginners, seasoned players are encouraged to attend as well. Feel free to bring your instrument along if you have particular questions.

Friday, March 29 | 7:00pm
Drum Clinic with Alan Dowling

Join Alan as he talks all about playing drums, and percussion instruments such as the cajon. Topics discussed include ergonomics, independence, playing with brushes, and using 5- and 7-note patterns. He performed as the onstage drummer with the Charlottetown Festival for five years and earned four ECMA awards and several Music PEI awards for recordings. He has performed at jazz festivals in Quebec, Nova Scotia and PEI and has made guest appearances with Symphony Nova Scotia and the PEI Symphony Orchestra.
