Laura Teasdale says this project has proven to be life changing. “I had to adapt and re-think techniques and exercises that I have been doing so long, they had become second nature. It took a lot of brain power to learn to instruct without being there to literally take a child’s hand and put their fingers on the strings in the frets. To inspire someone to want to play a game without just modeling the behavior was a special challenge… So grateful for this strange and beautiful experience.”

New Richmond and New Carlisle Schools’ ACE experience was made possible by an ELAN Quebec/LEARN partnership for students from Quebec’s English-speaking communities to participate in arts and culture experiences, thanks in part to funding from the Government of Canada.
