This performance-based program provides a “stepping stone” to a professional career in music for advanced and aspiring young musicians. Students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals lead by professional musicians and will gain experience in performing in a variety of musical styles. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.


The program offers students the opportunity to perform in front of live audiences to develop their musical skills at local events including Supercrawl, The Matapa World Music Festival and performances at the Hamilton Music Collective’s performance space at the Gasworks.
