At North Shore Music, we like to think of our instructors as coaches. They will work with you to have you playing or singing the songs that you really want to do quickly. We also have a band program, so if your dream is to play in a band that is also an option. You do not have to take private lessons with us to join the band program.
The Shore Things entertained family and friends, for the first time, on Canada Day 2018. On a day that was 33 degrees with a humidex of 40, it was so hot and humid that both The Things and the audience cooked in more ways than one. That didn’t stop everyone from enjoying the performance however.
Debbie Dart sang most of the tunes and played guitar and tambourine. She put on an amazing performance as the Shore Things’ front woman. Debbie’s hubby, Charlie Dart, played left-handed drums and came forward to play congas. Also switching it up was Dave Perry the Shore Things’ keyboard player. He came forward to play congas and sing. He also went to the back to play the other set of drums and sang harmonies to several songs. Not to be outdone, Dave Curran, lead guitar, pulled out a harmonica for a tune or two. For the next event, the Shore Things are expecting to have a bass player!
North Shore Music would like to thank all the family and friends that cooked along with the band both inside and outside. If any of you have photos you’d like to include with the ones above, please let one of the Daves know.
After the show, people cooled down by dragging their chairs off the beach and into the waters of Hay Bay, while the children enjoyed playing and swimming.
At dusk, there were sparklers followed by a grand fireworks display and a campfire with roasted marshmallows. Yummy! What a way to end an awesome day!
