Kiwanis Festival of Guelph 2019-new Online registration kiw


Online Registration for the  2019 Kiwanis Music Festival of Guelph   is finally up and running on our website at  Hooray!!!

The Registration Deadline has been extended to January 31, 2019.
As in the past, we encourage our students to participate in the festival as it is a great way to get an extra performance opportunity, get feedback from a different teacher and participate in the cultural life of our wonderful community of Guelph.
Students who register for the festival will not get a lesson the week of the festival. Instead, their teacher will attend their rehearsal with piano and attend their performance at the festival. 
Parents can register their children online and choose to pay through Paypal with a credit card or print the form and send payment to the Festival by cheque if preferred. The paper handling fee is $3.

Some important things to note for hassle-free Online Registration:
- Every field is required and must be completed before you can proceed to the next page
- If a student is studying with different teachers in different disciplines, they should do separate registrations for each teacher
- If a teacher's name is not listed, select Other and provide all of the required contact information
- Duets, Trios, Quartets, etc. must be entered in a separate Group Registration online and cannot be added in the Individual Registration.  Only one member of the ensemble needs to register and pay the entry fee.  They will need to know the full name, age, and complete contact information for each performer in order to register online.
N.B. Since Group Registration is somewhat cumbersome online, we will waive the $3 handling fee for Paper Application Forms for all Groups.

Let's Talk Workshop and Pop-up Poster Festival talk

 Let's Talk Workshop and Pop-up Poster Festival
On Saturday, January 26 our group classes will be a little different. We will be holding our first "Let's Talk Workshop". Your teachers will be leading discussions and answering parent and student questions as submitted ahead of time. In the weeks leading up we invite you to bring in your questions in writing to group class or email them to your group class teacher so we can plan the discussion ahead of time. 
Please note: There will be no rhythmic reading classes or Tanglewood Orchestra rehearsal on that day. GYMC orchestras and Concorde will be running as usual. So will the Spain tour group classes and the Mutter violin group class.
