ULethbridge musicians partner with middle school on virtual mentorship

November 13, 2020
University of Lethbridge musicians have partnered with Gilbert Paterson Middle School’s band program to offer virtual mentorship to beginner wind students. Middle school students join musicians enrolled in ULethbridge’s Wind Orchestra and pair off into breakout rooms, where they receive one-on-one instruction under the mentorship of the ULethbridge musician. “In the long run, it’s only going to help them because they’re getting focused sessions with other musicians, and it’s a good experience for the university students because learning to teach is completely different than learning to play music,” said recent graduate of the ULethbridge’s BMus program and current Wind Orchestra member Gerald Rogers.
