Innovative Music and Art School, Nelson Studio 88, Hosts a Three Day Open House September 6th, 7th, 8th, 2022

Nelson Studio 88 music and art school, the brainchild of Ellie Hedges, a Nelson-born piano teacher of 20 years provides space and inspiration for children, parents, friends and family to connect, explore and fulfill their creative potential.

On September 6th, 7th, and 8th from 4-6 PM, Nelson Studio 88 hosts a three day open house. Meet the instructors and participate in free musical and artistic activities. Classes begin on September 12th in piano, guitar, theatre, voice, ukulele, songwriting, yoga and art.

During the school year through collaboration and cross discipline inspiration students will prepare for a year end showcase in June.

The beautifully renovated Legion building that has served Nelson’s community since 1910 houses the new school. When Greg Malpass sold his business in 2022, he approached his sister Ellie to discuss how the building could continue to benefit Nelson’s community.

“Turning away piano students when I didn’t have room over the years and being aware that there is a demand for other arts instruction,” Ellie, the school’s founder and director says, “I knew there was a need for a multi-discipline space where our community can pursue their musical, artistic and performance dreams. Our inspired team is truly connected to all facets of this little mountain town and looks forward to welcoming you into Nelson Studio 88.”

Contact the school about bursaries if you have the desire but not the means to attend.

Call Nelson Studio 88 at 250-352-7028 or email info@nelsonstudio88.com to find out more or sign up. The website goes live September 9th. We can’t wait to see you!
