Lots of stuff!

Boy do we have lots to tell you. No fancy intro: head past the break for info on the upcoming Jazz Improv 101 Workshop, the date of the Spring Recital and other cool news.

Jazz Improv 101

First things first: This Friday, May 4 at 6:00 we're having our second Pizza & Workshop all about Jazz Improv 101! Pianists, bass players, violinists... everyone is invited! $20 gets you three hours of learning, playing, fun, and pizza. The first workshop we held was a great time. Response has already been big, so it's looking like this one will be another evening to remember. Let us know you're coming in person, by email, or on our Facebook page!

Spring Recital

Our Spring Recital will take place on Sunday, June 10 at 11:00. It will be held at the Women's Art Association Gallery, located at 23 Prince Arthur Avenue, near Bloor and Avenue Road. 

The cost is $10 per student.

The Women's Art Association Gallery is close to the St. George subway station, with lots of street parking and a large Green P lot within a block or two of the building. Coffee and tea will be served.

The last recital was standing room only, so we promise to bring more chairs this time. (Boy, what a problem to have: too many supporters at a recital!)

Online Registration

Finally, why we weren't updating for so long: We've implemented online registration! While current students of Toronto Music Alliance don't really need to take advantage of it, new students will be able to enrol with us much more easily than ever before. It was a big job with a lot of back-end changes that prevented us from easily updating for a while. A growing pain, but a very important one.

Thank you all for the support. Stay tuned for some other amazing announcements - and the upcoming Birthday Contest results when David Stone's son arrives! (Hey, if you haven't entered the Guess The Birthday Contest, what are you waiting for? Get in on a chance to win a $25 iTunes gift card!)

Why Online-Only Lessons?

We've heard from many of you asking both when we will be able to return to in-person lessons, as well as why we are working only online with our students. The first answer is, we don't know. But the second answer is simple: safety. And we have the science to back it up.
