June 2021

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy” – and so the song goes! Though the group courses are now finished for the summer, it doesn’t mean you have to stop music! How about joining a ‘ukulele jam’? Or a guitar class? Or mandolin? Voice lessons? Maybe a drum circle! Don’t worry if you don’t have the instrument you would like to try, we can get you one to use for the summer. For drum circle groups, just come and enjoy learning various rhythms while you are in the circle!

For group students, a reminder to have all your book fees in by
Friday, June 25!

The government seems to be leaning to level 2 by July 2nd and we are anticipating in person classes at that time!

In the meantime, hope to see you in the halls of Niagara School of Music – enjoy summer in every way possible!

Drum Circle
We are excited to announce Drum Circle, an eight-week course with sessions for children ages 8 and over, and adults.

What is drum circle? Glad you asked! Basically, under a facilitator, whole groups of people come together and play percussion instruments in a drum circle! It’s fun, its relaxing, it’s therapeutic. No experience necessary. It’s not about perfection but about participation!

Drum Circle begins Thursday, July 8 and runs until Thursday, August 26 from 6:00 PM for children and 6:45 PM for adults. The cost is $96 for eight weeks. Bring your own djembe, hand drum or we will provide you with one! Drumming together is relaxing and fun and there’s no experience necessary so be sure to register for Drum Circle today!
