Congratulations to Aidan vandenBosch, Aidan Parkes, and Tanya Elgie on wonderful piano and violin performances at the National Library for International Day for Persons with Disabilities! We were honoured to be invited to participate in this great event. Our students were personally congratulated by Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities Carla Qualtrough! Here is a photo of Executive Director Dr. Erin Parkes and Sandra Markovic from University of Ottawa with Minister Qualtrough.
Our popular and acclaimed Music Circle program is back! Presented in collaboration with the National Arts Centre, the Music Circle provides an opportunity for children age 5-12 with developmental disorders to learn about the instruments of the woodwind family in a series of three hands-on, interactive workshops, followed by a final concert at the National Arts Centre. The workshops and concert have been adapted to meet the sensory, cognitive and behavioural needs of the participants. Thanks to support from the NAC's National Youth and Education Trust, this program is being offered completely free of charge!
Here's a video filmed at Lotus Centre and during our collaborative Music Circle program with the NAC. Enjoy!
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.
