Teacher of the Month 

Our teacher of the month for September is Miss Joyce Everson Turnpenny, or Miss T for short! Miss T teaches Voice for children & adults.Background: 
My music background is very extensive, starting at 6 years old and onward, Recordings (signed to the Warner Brothers’ label), TV (featured artist on Saturday Night Live & The Mew Griffin Show), writing songs, doing commercials, playing guitar, and singing singing singing!

Favourite food:
My favourite food is blueberries.

Favourite thing to do in the fall:
Painting on large canvas’ with Acrylic paints, writing poetry and children’s stories.
Playing with my 4 year old Grandchild is one of my dearest activities :)

Fun fact about me: 
A fun fact about me is I am very silly and love to ride my bicycle, skate, climb trees etc. I enjoy life and the element of Joy that comes with living an authentic life.

Teaching style/philosophy: 
My philosophy of music is to find Joy and Healing through movement, singing, and sharing your gift with others. Hence the program I have written called The Joy of Music where children will learn proper breathing exercises, vocal and performance skills, create their own compositions, pursue their musical passions and more.

Miss Turnpenny has only a handful of spots left on Monday. We advise contacting us now for this great teacher!
