  • Description


    This arrangement is an inner city music residency. I am looking for piano players who want to practice and/or record classical or jazz piano on the home keyboard here.

    Other tasks include hand writing transcriptions onto computer, help with community garden, some meals preparation.

    Welcome to the West Coast! People come here from all over the world to visit the scenic waterfront downtown, parks, and islands. The apartment is located on a bicycle path only 2.5 km from downtown Vancouver. The beautiful Britannia Recreation Centre (swimming pool, skating rink, library) is located across the street, and leads to the Commercial Drive area (coffee shops, parks) of Vancouver.
    We would like to promote cycling and live music (jazz, Celtic, folk).
