We are very excited to be expanding our Lotus Centre staff! Welcome to Krista Dam and Dan Trolley, our two newest teachers! Krista's primary instrument is viola but also teaches violin, piano, and general music. Dan teaches piano and general music. Both come to us with a wealth of experience both in music education and working with individuals with special needs, and we're very excited to have them onboard! Also, we are happy to welcome our new studio manager, Becky Ingersoll! Becky has been a member of the Lotus Centre board of directors since it's inception in 2012, and brings a wide range of administrative experience. Welcome Krista, Dan and Becky!
This year's year-end recital will be held on Saturday, June 20th at Kanata United Church, 33 Leacock Drive, with the reception at 2:30 and recital starting at 3:00. This is a big day for our students as they get to show off their hard work! It is also our major fundraising event of the year and we sincerely thank all the wonderful donors who have provided great prizes for our silent auction! This year the event will also include recognition of our grant from Ontario Trillium Foundation, which has generously awarded us $114,000 over three years to support our operations and grow our programs. Admission is by donation. Please come out and support our students!
Our educational philosophy is reflected by the symbol of the lotus flower. Our goal is to help all students blossom into their full potential. We believe that every child has the right to appropriate education in any endeavour they choose to pursue.
