Mountainside music programs

The opportunity is here to partake in a beginner group cello class taught by the inspiring and professional cellist, Jeff Faragher.

More and more people are being drawn to playing the cello. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play one? It is such a beautiful instrument which creates such an exquisite and rich sound.

The opportunity is here to partake in a beginner group cello class taught by the inspiring and professional cellist, Jeff Faragher. Jeff will be teaching on alternating Wednesdays in the North Slocan Valley as part of his Mountainside chamber music programs.  Prices are reasonable and include cello rental. Come and check out the first class on Thursday, September 25 for free to see, hear and feel what it would be like to play the cello. Location and time TBA,  Ages 12 + adults.

Are there any closet string players out there?  We invite you to dig out your violin, viola, cello or bass — dust if off, tune it up and check us out at our Mountainside chamber music programs.  Director Jeff Faraghe will be coaching a large string ensemble and cello choir (ensemble) on Tuesdays in Nelson (beginning September 23) and on  alternating Wednesdays beginning on September 25 in the North Slocan Valley. Please join us if you have at least two years of private instruction and previous experience with ensemble playing.  Ages 12+ adults.

To register or gather information for cello lessons and ensembles, please contact Sue at (250)358-2177 (opt 2) or Visit and
