I teach two sisters together in a group session and this week they brought me a surprise gift! They HANDMADE this beautiful sewn owl which we named Lavendar! (Because she smells like lavender due to some natural essential oil the girls added as a sweet relaxing touch!).

I was so touched by this surprise gift I had to share with everyone. This is one of the joys of teaching and so encouraging when students show how much they enjoy their lessons and my presence as their teacher!

Lavender is currently sitting in my music studio if you'd like to come see her. She smells amazing! 

Music Art

I received this beautiful piece of art as a surprise gift this week! It has my favourite colour (mint green)!! I am especially impressed with the multi coloured blonde hair she gave me  (just like the real thing!). I am proudly displaying this piece of art in my music studio.

Meet My Friend Duane

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 by Ris Rumble | Songwriter

This week I got to see an old good friend of mine Duane Forrest! We went on tour together summers ago, singing and writing songs. I am proud to say I taught him his first guitar chord!! 

He is performing all of his original songs (on guitar) and singing for ClimbTheMusical in Kensington Market! His music was amazing and I enjoyed the actors and dancers as well! I recommend going to see this and please tell him hi from me :) 

You can check out more about him on his website here! To buy tickets or see more information about his show click "CLIMB".

Duane is an inspiration having recently founded a non-profit organization that sends music teachers across the globe. The profit he makes from his own recordings and performances like Climb go to fund these experiences for children who would not be able to afford music lessons otherwise.
