FREE MUSIC LESSONS FOR NEW IMMIGRANTS
Is your family a new immigrant to Canada? Do you have children who speak limited English? Julianne de Siqueira, a St. Michael’s parishioner and researcher from UofC, is looking for children ages 6-10 who have recently arrived in Canada and speak a first language other than English. This research will provide free weekly music/piano lessons for two months at a music studio in NW Calgary, taught by a music instructor with a PhD in Education. Participation will be anonymous and a maximum of eight students will qualify. For more info or to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
