Motor skills and self-control get a workout with plenty of stop-and-go motion, energy gets tapped with plenty of up-and-down, and sense of humor gets a tickle with silly sounds, silly movements, finger plays, and fun.

We'll enjoy favourite songs and dances, do an Octopus Hula, jump on a banana boat, and then snuggle up and happily relax to gentle beach sounds and songs. Beach Days is as fun and restorative as, well, a trip to the beach!

NCM WELCOMES NEW GRAND PIANO

The NCM welcomed a new grand piano recently.  It became part of the NCM family through the generosity of Mr. Randle Jones, in memory of Fran Jones.

The NCM is thrilled to have this new instrument and it is now happily living in one of our studios.  It is a Heintzman grand, in wonderful condition, and it will enrich the learning of many current and future young musicians!

Thank you, Mr. Jones!

Here is a photo of the first NCM student to have a lesson on the new piano.  This is Zealand Priboj, with his teacher Mary Jackson.
