Summer Camp Staff
Bilal is a performer, composer, and teacher. His energetic and approachable personality draws his students to learn through their own creativity and unique voices. Bilal studied classical guitar in university, but rather than performing the traditional repertoire, explored all things unordinary. He is interested in the use of technology, unconventional techniques, and bridging classical music with other mediums.
Sarah Gill has been involved with music for most of her life. She began to play the clarinet at the age of nine and quickly developed a passion towards the arts, participating in concerts and recitals. Sarah has a wealth of experience working with kids as a childcare provider, as well as an older sister. Her main goal is to help young kids unleash their creative side! In her spare time she enjoys singing and listening to 60’s music.
Michael Gordon is a music educator and multi-instrumentalist who has expertise in alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, as well as piano and voice. Michael has been immersed in music education from a young age, and as such seeks to share this passion with children. His energetic, lively, and engaging teaching style helps his students explore the connection between music, creativity, and emotion.
