Group violin lessons are in full swing at the Carriage House on Mondays. These musicians are learning to play with each other, and practice what they have learned throughout the week. Sweet sounds come out of the windows of the Carriage House, they will wrap around you like a warm fall sweater when you walk down the sidewalk.
Emily has been a student of guitar and voice at VCMS for several years now. What wonderful talents she has developed, and she always gives fine performances whether on vocals or guitar! This past summer Emily was the show opener for a couple of nights at the BXPress Cidery here in Vernon, and has also performed at the Eclectic Med, downtown. Ken feels privileged to have her studying guitar with him for her 5th year, as she expands her repertoire so that many others can enjoy her great musicianship! Bravo Emily!
Yesterday was a busy day, here at the Music School! We were so fortunate to have a Masterclass/Presentation on Intonation, featuring Dr. Minna Rose Chung from CelloMind. Dr. Chung is Associate Professor of Cello and Coordinator of Orchestral Studies at the Desautels Faculty of Music at the Univeristy of Manitoba, and she has written a book, CelloMind, which is “a two-part, pedagogical method book that has been written to help musicians understand HOW intonation works and, more importantly, WHY it works the way it does.” CelloMind was written to enhance and elevate your cello playing. Hopefully you were able to come out and listen to her presentation last night, what a fantastic opportunity for us at the Vernon Community Music School!
