Founder and artistic Director for Lila Music Centre.  Cari enjoys building community through music and is excited to host this creative summer camp.
Cari will lead us in songs, movement and games.
Classes will include:
Vocal Improvisation – Bring your curiosity and playfulness to this course, as we journey and create instant songs, sounds and tapestries with the voice.
Sense Play –  Joyful games with silks, sticks, balls and movement. We develop our balance, intuition, confidence, trust, listening and more all through games.
Camp Choir – Let’s sing in harmony with songs from around the world, and we will create our own song for the week as well!

Corbin Keep is a musical renegade, for whom genre and musical convention are much less important than visceral energy and the artistic expression of each unique individual.
He is an accomplished cellist, guitarist, singer-songwriter and all around big hearted, high energy, music guy. Says Corbin, “Connection between people is something that I value above pretty much everything else, and music – especially that which we’ve created ourselves – is a perfect vehicle for that.”
Choices of classes will include:
Creative Cello Class – If you love the cello and have a desire to make music with it, this is the workshop for you. The class is open to cellists of all levels, experienced or just starting out. There will be extra instruments on hand for those who do not have their own yet.
The bow is a paintbrush and the cello a pallet of many, many colours, hues and textures. We will avail ourselves of many of them!
Be in a Band and Rock out! In this course you will compose your own rock songs with a band. Bring your instruments and voices.
Did you know that you already know how to play fast guitar? Even if you only just started? Doing this is a matter of tapping into the right muscles and utilizing proper picking technique. So many of the “amazing things” you hear guitarists pull off are actually quite easy to do!
We’ll quickly get a few different skills and concepts under our belts, including picking, strumming, muting and “horizontal” scales, which are incredibly easy to learn and understand. Armed with that creative arsenal, we’ll co-write, record and perform a rock song together.
Percussion Party In the class we will create our own percussion instruments and rock out in rhythms.

Trish’s Classes:
Musicians’ Theatre – 
If you want to discover something of what goes into putting on a musical theatre production and have a role in growing a special community out of creative collaboration, then join us with your instrument, whatever that is, especially your voice!
Free Your Inner Fiddle – Explore an eclectic ethnic mix of fiddle tunes and have fun adding your own harmony. You’ll get some encouragement in playing with freedom,  helping you express your inner fiddler more dynamically.
