Errington music camp to change instructor

New instructor Jordan Hanson has studied music in 22 different countries

The Errington World Music Youth Camp announces a change of instructors in week three with Jordan Hanson replacing Navaro Franco as the Brazilian samba teacher.

Hanson is an experienced musician and teacher whose musical adventures have taken him around the globe.

He has studied music in 22 different countries and plays some of the most unique instruments you’ve ever seen. Jordan’s quest for rhythmic knowledge brought him to remote corners of the Amazon, the samba schools of Rio de Janeiro, traditional African village festivals, and Garifuna communities along the coast of Belize.

Most recently he had the experience of a lifetime performing on stage with all three drummers from the band Santana.

Jordan is on staff at the University of Victoria’s School of Music, and has taught world music there for the past ten years. Across Canada and the U.S. he has now taught in over 500 schools, reaching more than 250,000 students since 1995.

Also offered in week three, from August 24 to 28, is Introduction to World Guitar with Doug Cox.

To get registration information for this affordable and unique music camp, go to www.erringtonhall.bc.ca or email coordinator Val Dare at         vgdare@gmail.com.
