Summer 17 Newsletter - Opus 9

We have so much to celebrate as we begin our 8th year at Motif Music Studios.  This past year we witnessed some of our very first Motif students graduate from high school and make plans to head off to university this Fall.  What a privilege to see each of them grow from children to young adults. It is certainly a joy to be a part of their musical journey.


It is an important reminder of how fleeting these years are and what an honour it is to play a part in shaping character, encouraging growth and nurturing students of all ages as they take on musical challenges and navigate the many highs and lows that life brings their way.

We look forward to encouraging each of our individual students in the year to come.  

See you in September!

This September we are happy to welcome back our current instructors, as well as introduce the following new additions to our Motif teaching team.

Taeryn Novak (Piano)
We are honoured to welcome Taeryn Novak to our team of Motif teachers this year.  She has shown diligence as a student at Motif Music Studios over the years, is musical, detailed and has so much to offer students looking to begin piano.  We look forward to mentoring Taeryn as she learns and grows as a teacher and furthers her music training.  We know that students will love Taeryn's kind, calm approach and enjoy getting to know her sense of humour.

Sophie Simard (Voice)
We are excited to welcome Sophie Simard to our teaching team at Motif Music Studios. Sophie brings a contagious enthusiasm and passion for sharing her love of singing and will be working with junior level voice students of all ages at Motif.  Sophie has been singing in choirs since the age of 6 and continues to challenge herself by continuing her own private lessons in both voice and theory. She also recently completed the BC Choral Federation Choral Directive Intensives and sings locally in both choral ensembles and as a soloist.

Dagmar Kilian (Piano - All Levels)
Well loved accompanist, accomplished performer and compassionate teacher, it is truly an privledge to welcome Dagmar Kilian to our teaching staff at Motif Music Studios this Fall.  Dagmar will be also continuing at her home studio, but will enjoy teaching in our collaborative teaching environment and mentoring students from beginners to concert repertoire.
