You won't only be learning to play an instrument, you'll be meeting and making new friends to play with, in and out of the band room. Making music is important, but that's not all you'll do! (learn more)
The Long & McQuade Bloor New Horizons Band is a band program for mature adults who want to play a musical instrument in a friendly group environment. There are classes at three levels: classes for absolute beginners and those who want to re-connect with musical skills they haven't used in years, classes for people who have been playing for a year or two, and classes for those more experienced players who want to learn more about playing in a band while making new friends. Each class meets once a week and will begin again in September, 2014. (learn more)
Free Instrument Exploration Workshop! Come out to an evening of fun and try out any or all of the instruments we offer in the New Horizons Band program. No Experience Necessary! We have almost anything you can blow or hit. See what kinds of sounds come out. Learn what it feels like to blow a saxophone or play a marimba. No Obligation! It's a time to explore, to have some fun on a cold January night, to meet the teacher and maybe some of your future classmates. If you have questions, call Dan at 647-201-8780. Details: Friday January 23, at 7:00 pm Long & McQuade Clinic Hall 925 Bloor Street West Toronto
