North Shore Music Celebrates Canada Day With Family And Friends

The Shore Things entertained family and friends, for the first time, on Canada Day 2018.  On a day that was 33 degrees with a humidex of 40, it was so hot and humid that both The Things and the audience cooked in more ways than one.  That didn’t stop everyone from enjoying the performance however.

Debbie Dart sang most of the tunes and played guitar and tambourine.  She put on an amazing performance as the Shore Things’ front woman.  Debbie’s hubby, Charlie Dart, played left-handed drums and came forward to play congas.  Also switching it up was Dave Perry the Shore Things’ keyboard player.  He came forward to play congas and sing.  He also went to the back to play the other set of drums and sang harmonies to several songs.  Not to be outdone, Dave Curran, lead guitar, pulled out a harmonica for a tune or two.  For the next event, the Shore Things are expecting to have a bass player!

North Shore Music would like to thank all the family and friends that cooked along with the band both inside and outside.  If any of you have photos you’d like to include with the ones above, please let one of the Daves know.

After the show, people cooled down by dragging their chairs off the beach and into the waters of Hay Bay, while the children enjoyed playing and swimming.

At dusk, there were sparklers followed by a grand fireworks display and a campfire with roasted marshmallows.  Yummy!  What a way to end an awesome day!

Building Your Instrument – Your Voice

Your voice is the most personal instrument you can ever play.  Just like a guitar has to be made and have strings attached before it can be played or a drum set has to be manufactured and setup before the drummer is ready to play, there are some things that you need to do to build this instrument called your voice.

At the North Shore Music you will be taught everything you need to know to make your voice the best it can be.  Along with building your voice, you will also be taught the techniques to be able to “play” your voice.

 

Lesson Tasks Include (but are not limited to) The Following:
  • Support and Placement (breath control and articulation)
  • Microphone Technique
  • Ear Training
  • Rhythm
  • Theory
  • Harmonies
  • Stripping Songs

Dave will assist you with selecting songs that are right for your voice and capabilities.  If you are in a band, bring in the music your band is playing that you want to sing.  He can even assist you with putting the harmonies together!  Better yet, bring in your band to work with both Daves!
