The Music of ArtSpirit Summerland
ArtSpirit Summerland fosters self-expression and musical mastery in students of all ages. We believe that learning music builds character, self-esteem, team-work and lifelong joy. And while the courage, the perseverance and the discipline that grow out of music lessons are serious things, we approach it all with humour, games and creativity.
