On March 7, 2020 our branch will be celebrating its 5th collaborative concert with Maestro Clyde Mitchell and the Lions Gate Sinfonia.
In the week leading up to Saxophones Glorious and Pianos Galore concert the North Shore Branch of the BCRMTA, Maestro Mitchell, Libby Yu (piano) and Julia Nolan (saxophone) will be holding masterclasses and recitals for participating students; all to provide professional mentorship to the many young music students involved with these events.
It will be a special treat for the young soloists to perform on stage with Sinfonia, as well as to observe two brilliant soloists at work!
We are professional musicians committed to excellence in music education.
North Shore Branch of BC Registered Music Teachers Association is a non-profit organization of qualified and experienced independent music teachers with appropriate diplomas, undergraduate and graduate degrees in music education and performance.
Through partnership with the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers, Lions Gate Sinfonia and North Shore Music Festival we have provided superior music education, students' performance opportunities and teachers' mentorship for more than 40 years. We are constantly looking for creative new ways to engage students, teachers and community.
Music education is an important tool to allow creativity to develop and to teach discipline, focus and concentration.
"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the secret places of the soul:" - Plato
