Julia Nicholson playing guitaralt

17 year old Julia Nicholson is no stranger to contests. In October of this year, she won the Amplify Festival Battle of the Bands. This past April she won four categories in an international competition in Nashville.  She has been a finalist in everything from Big Valley Jamboree, K-Days Talent Search, and winner of the St. Albert Idol Junior Competition. 

Her stage experience already reads like a seasoned professional, having performed at the Edmonton Folk Fest, the Canmore Folk Fest, and numerous corporate events and fundraisers. 

Julia is always giving back to the community that supports her and has recently written a song "Give A Little Love" to raise awareness to the issues of poverty that exist in our province. She has entered this song in the "My United Way Voice" competition that is being held across Alberta and she is now in the top 10!

Last year, Julia was runner up in the same competition, and this year the Visionary College family is joining forces to support Julia in "My United Way Voice". Julia is committed to using her voice to help the United Way in it's efforts to end poverty in Alberta. 

You can vote every day!

Dynamics: Loud and Quiet

Dynamics: Loud and Quiet

At some point, most parents frantically seek to turn down the volume of their child—in the library, at a restaurant, waiting in line at the grocery store, in a public bathroom. Unfortunately, a toddler’s version of an “inside voice” can tend to sound like everyone else’s version of an “outside voice” (as in yodeling-at-the-top-of-a-mountain loud). Yodel-ay-hee-shhhhh!

While your child’s sense of hearing began developing in the womb, the basic concept of dynamics—loud and quiet—must be learned. In Kindermusik class, we lead you and your child through a variety of activities to help your little yodeler learn to recognize the difference between loud and quiet sounds. When we play our clip clap instruments loud or soft, “go ‘round the mountain” with loud running feet or quiet tiptoeing feet, imitate the loud or quiet sounds of mama and baby sheep, or even move our scarves quietly or loudly through the corn, your child learns how to listen to and differentiate between loud and quiet sounds. So, the next time your toddler uses an “outside voice” in an inside situation, you can ask in your quiet voice: “How would baby sheep say that”? It just might turn down the volume!

Everyday Connection: Keep it Bottled Up. Make toddler-friendly shakers from plastic drink containers and soft (quiet) and hard (loud) items. Then, put on your favourite music from class and play loudly and quietly together!
