Vancouver Stick Weekend has 2 main objectives: performance and sharing, and our schedule each day is driven by these two objectives.
A Musical Conversation – Share Your Ideas
Time is set aside each day for our Musical Conversation – an ongoing discussion on this year’s topics. Everyone attending is encouraged to share their musical ideas, experiences, and techniques. And we don’t have to be in a classroom, either!
Musical Conversation Topics for Vancouver Stick Weekend:
– Getting Started with the Stick

Need a little time to yourself?
Vancouver Stick Weekend is about spending time with other Stick players! Open hours are scheduled for reflecting, relaxing and rehearsing. But Vancouver is a lovely city and you may want to explore. We’ll have suggestions and make sure free time is available.
