Unique to the festival will be a one-day teaching seminar geared towards teachers by focusing on intermediate through advanced pedagogy.  The Sunday, July 7 program has a schedule filled with lectures, teaching demonstrations, master classes, a question/answer session, and performances. This year's seminar will be dedicated to our friend and faculty member Edward Francis who sadly passed away last year.  We all unite and will honour his memory and his dedication to music education.  This outstanding opportunity is available to all teachers, students, parents and beyond who desire to deepen their art of pedagogy.
