Online Offerings

Term 3 Courses are here!

There are some new ones as well as some favourites. These are open to everyone far and wide, so spread the word to your music-loving friends around the globe!

A few important notes before you register:

 

**Course costs have increased slightly for our Winter Semester. Here’s why:

 

In September, our artistic staff volunteered to take a 20% reduction in pay to help us traverse the challenges presented by Covid-19. They proceeded to forge a robust, varied on-line program that was both educational and interesting, and which seemed to elicit your approval and your enthusiastic participation. As always, our directors and accompanists met the challenge with talent and creativity.

 

After two terms of on-line courses, we have learned a lot, including the fact our on-line offerings require as much or more preparation than in-person rehearsals. With that in mind, Westwinds’ Board of Directors voted to reinstate our directors’ full pay rate effective in January, 2021 to more fairly compensate them for the workload required to prepare and deliver a robust on-line program. While we wait for the opportunity to rehearse in person once again, we look forward to more interesting and educational on-line learning from our talented Artistic Staff.

 

  • If you have already paid the $20 (non-refundable) Membership fee, you do not have to pay it again.  However, it is required for any new registrants. You can access it HERE

  • All courses are NON-REFUNDABLE (unless cancelled due to lack of registrants)

  • If you register for Bronze Concert Band and would like to participate in the virtual recording, there is an additional $10 fee for this.  Please select the separate Eventzilla listing for this.  The virtual recording is optional.  You can still participate in Bronze Concert Band without being involved in the virtual recording.

  • Please note there are TWO levels of both Music Theory and A Comprehensive Approach to Timekeeping & Rhythm.  Make sure you choose the correct one (either level 1 or 3)
