2015 September Newsletter

Hello everyone!

Please read below for information about the fall term.

Studio Masterclass

The masterclass date has been changed to the afternoon or evening of Friday, November 27. Please let me know if you can’t make that time.

FMMTA Scholarships for RCM exams

If you completed a Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) exam in the last school year, you can submit your mark to Fort McMurray Music Teacher’s Association (FMMTA) for their annual scholarships. Deadline is Sept 30. For submission instructions, see this document.

Woodwind Ensemble

I’d like to start a chamber music group for woodwinds (flute, clarinet, saxophone, oboe/bassoon). If you or someone you know plays a woodwind instrument and is interested in joining, please let me know!


Listenings is a series about the music I enjoy. If you missed the last article, it was Percy Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy.

Some of you also know that I got married this summer! I wrote original music for the wedding – if you are curious about my activities as a composer, you can listen to my music here: Music for A Ceremony of Union.
