Ottawa New Horizons Band

Sheila is delighted to be involved with Ottawa New Horizons. Since 2013 she has directed a number of different bands and flute clinics, and has led chamber music workshops for ONHB intercity gatherings.

With over 35 years experience as a performer, educator, and coach, Sheila has played flute in various ensembles, including the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra, Ottawa Flute & Harp duo, HMCS Stadacona Band — and the duo of sheila&lucile, with whom she co-produced several albums and videos. She has also played Irish flute in different celtic bands including the Ottawa Ceili Band and Paddies on the Tundra.

Having taught music programs for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB), Sheila maintains an active teaching studio, where she enjoys teaching musicians of all ages. Her students include pre-schoolers through to university students and lifelong learners.

A strong advocate for equal access to musical engagement in our schools and communities, she served as Chair of the OCDSB’s Advisory Committee on the Arts.

Sheila loves sharing the joys of music-making with New Horizons band members in an environment that is supportive, respectful, and fun!
