Give the Gift of Music

Flute lesson gift cards:  treat one of your loved ones or yourself.

Scientific studies have shown that 14 months of musical training bring about significant structural and functional brain changes in children.

And science has proven that music reaches parts of the brain that other things can’t – if you want brain training, learning an instrument is your best bet!

Concerts in Fredericton and Sackville

Super concert last week in Fredericton at UNB with Nadia Francavilla, violin and viola, and Paul Pulford, cello. And another great new program for the Argento Collective concert October 25th at Mount Allison University in Sackville.

Schubert and more

Todd and Sibylle had some wonderful experiences playing for Concerts in Care this past week. It is such a pleasure to bring music to care facilities and retirement homes, where the residents can’t go out to concert halls anymore. What a great organization! (photo by D.Mazierski)


Concerts in Care July 26th

Sibylle & Todd will embark on a new round of Concerts in Care in Toronto on July 26th.

There will be some Scriabin and Rachmaninoff fresh off a solo recital by brilliant Todd and some beautiful flute gems of Schubert and Godard , as well as the fantastic Hindemith 8 pieces for solo flute!
