The Recess Guitar Club


Recess Guitar Club is made up of over 100 students from Grades 1-6 at W. Erskine Johnston Public School. Students learn the guitar, experiment with different percussion instruments including drums and boomwackers, and decide on the arrangements of songs they perform. Students meet as often as they want, as it’s offered every school day during recess time.

They have performed at City Hall, at the CFUW/Kanata ”Enchanted evening with the Arts” Benefit Concert and other community events, and even during intermission at an Ottawa 67s game. The Recess Guitar Club nurtures creativity and confidence; it strengthens critical problem solving and collaboration; it provides leadership opportunities; and it is all about inclusiveness - their motto is 'Everyone is welcome'.
