Fiddle Fun at the New Leaf Learning Centre

Fiddle Fun for youngsters at the New Leaf Learning Centre

Music builds brains; a wonderful way to share a voice and learn a skill which no one can ever take away. Children build positive self-esteem by overcoming challenge, learn teamwork, develop better language skills by enhanced listening with music. Music is good therapy!

The Bella Coola Valley Learning Society at the New Leaf Learning Centre is offering free beginner youth group lessons once a week starting in September. The choices are Mondays, 3:30-4:30pm or Tuesdays, 4-5pm. starting September 9. Currently we have 12 violins partially donated by Larsen Music in Victoria. Donations of violins are welcome. There is a ground swell of interest from adults so please let the New Leaf Learning Centre know if you would like to join in!

If we don’t have enough fiddles, the program will sponsor the first two months of rental ($20/month) so that you can get started! The benefit of renting is that students may take their violin home to practice right away.

Future developments hopefully will include joining “Strings Across the Chilcotin- Caribou,” a program in Redstone and Anaham funded by Caribou Mental Health that pays for visiting instructors several times per year. Fundraising will enable those instructors to come to Bella Coola to teach, call a family square dance and perform concerts.

 

Please call 250 799-5822 to learn more and to register!
