Coming Up!

There are a number of exciting things happening in the Whistling Duck World this winter.  For information or to register for the new Guitar Mama group, contact us.  Course fees are due at the first session by cash, cheque, or e-transfer.  Retreat registration and payment are through the link.

New Guitar Mama Showcase Group – Mondays once a month in Canmore

Guitar Mama Showcase is an opportunity to gather with like-minded women on the music making journey.  Every month every woman shares with the group whatever she has been working on, whether it’s a new chord or a song or a new strum or finally mastering singing and playing together.  Two Canmore groups are going strong – a new group starts everyone together on the same page.  All ranges of experience are welcome – the only necessity is a willingness to share at your own pace.  First two gatherings – no charge.  After that, membership through this website ($15) is required.  Location TBD.


Women’s Guitar Beginner Retreat – February 2-4, 2018

A chance to get together with other women on the early side of the guitar playing journey – to learn chords, strumming and fingerpicking together.  A perfect kick-start to that New Year’s Resolution about looking after yourself and having more music in your life!  Laughter, good food, quiet time and beautiful noise.
