BGC Dawson offers extensive music programming throughout the year for a wide range of age groups, musical abilities and technical skills. The music lessons and material offered are flexible to both the needs and interests of the student. Each program emphasizes the importance and utility of technique, rhythm, music theory, ear training, and most importantly, creativity.


The overall goal is to impart a greater understanding and appreciation of music and playing a musical instruments, both alone and in a group. Ideally students will reach a level of competence and confidence which will allow them continue their pursuit of music, be it through formal lessons or auto didactic study.

Future Program Goals

Future Virtual Programming

Future iterations of virtual programming will ideally work with slightly smaller groups of students (between 2 and 4) and cover more specific musical aspects which are potential students are interested in. For example, offering classes on instruments other than guitar (like bass or percussion), or running a program specifically designs to reach musical composition, ear training, or theory. By providing different lessons to cater to specific interests of the students.
