Beginner Guitar Lessons

The Best Memory Care Activities | A Place for Mom

Facilitated by Mike Bravener

Thursday afternoons.  Classes run from October to May

You will learn all the basic chords and strumming patterns so that you can play 3 or more chord songs.  I help you learn to play the songs you love to play.  In the Intermediate class I build on that and teach Barre Chords and the little “riffs” that make your playing more interesting.  I also teach basic scales at this level, so you can learn to solo. Fees are $90 for 6 weeks.  Contact Mike at 472-4186 or by email at mikebravener@gmail.com for more information.

Thursday afternoons at 1:00 pm to 3:30pm

Join this lively, social group of ladies for a fun afternoon of crafts.

You are welcome to quilt, knit, crochet, cross stitch, draw etc. Bring your favourite craft to work on.  If you have a craft that you would like to do or would like to try, there are lots of helpers here to give you a hand. You don’t have to be a pro-crafter, just come out and have fun, stitch away, and have a chat with the gang.

We always have a light snack with tea and coffee.  There are no fees with this program. Contact Pat at jpabrideau@outlook.com

Ukulele Lessons 

Ukulele | Gibsons Seniors Society

Monday from 11:30 to 12:30.

The mission of the Club is to be able to come to a safe place where we can enjoy playing ukuleles, singing, and making new friends. This is a club, not a teaching class. We learn from each other. It is an open invitation to any member who has a ukulele and wants to come along. All levels of playing and singing are welcomed. Reading chords from sheet music will be required. However, if you don’t know the chords, you will soon learn from the group. Members are welcome to bring music to share with the others.

Cost is $2 per session to help with cost of photocopying.

Ukulele vs. Guitar: Differences and Similarities Between Them - 2022 -  MasterClass

Art Lessons

Over the years, the Centre has offered this program when there were people available to give Art Lessons in several different mediums. If the interest is there, the Centre will attempt to find a Facilitator. 

Theatre

Theatre has been offered at different times of the year, with a focus in recent years, on Readers’ Theatre. Many of the productions have been written by members. The format of Zoom presentations was used and recorded for viewers to watch at their leisure during Covid-19. We are open to starting up a Theatre group at any time.
