With the support of a MyPG grant we gave free recorder classes ( and instruments) for seniors on Monday afternoon from 3:30 pm. to 4:30 pm. The classes will began on September 12, we gave three concerts at seniors care homes; Simon Fraser, Jubilee Lodge & Laurier Manor
Feedback from participants:
"We have been fortunate to participate in a Senior's recorder group with Erica as our instructor and mentor.
Erica is an excellent teacher --- kind, gentle, pleasant, positive and encouraging, really smart, knows her students and their audience. She is skilled at encouraging, all the while cheerfully challenging one to move forward.
Erica is very community -minded, even arranging opportunities for the group to entertain others. She is very skilled at setting up the program and encouraging the participation of her own students and of everyone.
And that is a GOOD thing!"
I just want to say I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to play and hopefully
you will be able to offer class again.
"Thank you so much for doing this, Erica, as you can
tell by the attendance, it is much loved by us seniors
as well as by those in homes."
