Strings Club for Grades 4-7

You may be aware that the VSB cut the Elementary Band and Strings Program last year and it will no longer be offered at Queen Mary. As a result we are starting a user pay Strings Club before school in the music room. Details on the program and the registration form are attached. Form Deadline is September 23rd. Thank you Lisa Meyer for making this happen! Some information about our instructor is listed below.

Debra Dawes, Music Instructor

I have been a music teacher for 33 years and a preschool teacher for 21 years. I graduated from the University of Toronto with a General Arts Degree, but also studied Music Therapy at Capilano College, and Early Childhood Education at Vancouver Community College. I play the piano, violin, flute, alto saxophone, guitar and I enjoy singing. My daughter recently graduated from the Byng Arts program and is off to the University of Toronto and my son will be going into grade 11 at Prince of Wales high school. I thoroughly enjoy being involved with music and children and would welcome the opportunity to organize a strings program for Queen Mary students.
