Music as stress relief: meet Lydia Mainville

It has been far too long since I have shared anything.
I hope you are doing well and enjoying a relaxing day.

Life has been a whirlwind since I returned from Peru just over a year ago:
I enjoyed working with and teaching Mexicans and Colombians close to home last spring, while doing four online pre-requisite courses for a Bachelor of Education program. I have been in front of my computer a lot since then; 11.5 months is a very short a period in which to cram 60 university credits, school visits and teaching practicums.
My extended practicum ends on Friday; it will be bitter-sweet to say “à bientôt” to my wonderful students.

I now introduce you to Lydia Mainville. I came to know this amazing individual during my time in the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra; she was then in Grade 10 at school and already playing cello in her province’s symphony orchestra. She was already “going places”. Her energy, and passion for life and the arts were evident. And on top of being an incredible cellist, she sings and takes captivating photos. She was also very good at Spanish and enjoyed practising it when possible.

Lydia finished her Bachelor of Music at Wilfred Laurier University in 2015 and soon released a single, “Saltwater Daughter“, that she wrote, arranged and performed (cello and voice). It is a very relaxing song that transports you to another place…
