Music students from Tom Lee Music Academy recently joined the 2016 Yamaha Junior Original Concert (JOC) Music Camp at Mount St. Anne in Quebec City. Our students had the pleasure of attending workshops on drums, music composition, vocal training, ensemble sessions and melody writing. Our music instructors Elaine Lee and Rebecca Cheng attended an exceptional teachers' training session during this time. At the end of the three day camp, the students performed in three public concerts.  Firstly, each group of students and their teachers sang their brand new repetoire together, then they proceeded to perform in smalle ensembles. The concert finale included two sessions of students performing their own unique compositions.
