We hope everyone had a great, music-filled summer!
As you know, RCC has taken a bit of a break to regroup and reassess our organization, and we’ve decided to to simplify how we run things, and work more collaboratively with our teachers and volunteers.
Now we’re looking forward to offering a variety of new fall classes, in Irish Fiddle (all levels), Celtic Mandolin (Melody and Accompaniment), Irish Gaelic Language, Irish and Scottish Song, Celtic Guitar Accompaniment, and Irish Bodhran (all levels)!
We’re going to try something different this term, and offer the classes at different locations (and different evenings) in the KW/Guelph area, with everyone coming together at the end of the term in early December for a final celebratory Wrap Up Ceili/Session at the Albion in Guelph on Sunday, December 7th.
If you are interested in taking any of these classes listed below (or would like more information) please contact the teacher by email directly and let them know you are interested.
He/she can answer any of your questions and give you details re: course description, instructor bio, location, time of your class etc. and enroll you. (You will paying the instructor directly as well. Tuition for the 9 week term is $240.00) Classes are 1 ½ hours long. Classes start the week after Thanskgiving.
Put out the word and tell your friends….looking forward to sharing some tunes and songs with you again this fall!
