Group Lessons

Music for Me is a play based introduction to music for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Classes are held Saturdays from 10am to 10:45am for 8 weeks, three times a year. Preschoolers love repetition and build knowledge through repeated exposure to concepts. Through guided listening, singing, games, moving to music and using rhythm instruments, the children will discover that music has pitch, tempo, dynamics, beat and rhythm. Experience with these basic musical concepts will help prepare the students for lessons when they reach the appropriate age. The main goal is to have fun and foster a life-long love for music! The next Music for Me runs September 28th to November 16th, 2019 and is $144.00 for the full 8 weeks.

Jonathan Kipping - Drums and Percussion music lessons in Saint John

Jonathan Kipping (Drums and Percussion)

Jonathan performs and gives lessons mainly in Rock, Jazz, & Musical Theatre styles. He also gives clinics, educational drum circles and workshops (e.g. Long & McQuade, KVHS, SJB-King Edward School, The ONE Change, & The Boys and Girls Club), and accompanies dancers in Ballet, Modern, African and Scottish styles. Jonathan hopes to instill in drummers of all ages the many joys of drumming, on the drum set—and beyond! Jonathan developed his unique but tried-and-true approach through Orchestral experience (mainly on Timpani), African drumming (on djembe & dunun) and completion of an Interdisciplinary Studies degree at Montreal’s Concordia University (in Jazz Drumming and Electro-Acoustic Music Composition). After further university study, performing and giving lessons in Nova Scotia and British Columbia, Jonathan returned to Saint John in 2002, newly dedicated to educating, performing, and ongoing learning… eventually through ABDA_Drumming – an initiative to help expand drum and percussion activities, awareness, education and performances in the Saint John area. If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated educator for you or your child, and a locally-orientated performer who can organize a drumming or full-band event tailored to your needs, please consider Jonathan Kipping. His rate is $21 per half hour.
