Contemporary music with a blend of jazz and blues, Wood ‘n’ Strings was grown right here in Gananoque, Ontario.
Having previously taught music in Gan for seven years, Stephen (Stefen) Beardwood presently teaches guitar lessons and plays in Gananoque alongside Ken Wilson, a former student under the title of Wood ‘n’ Strings. Their students, several of whom attend (or will attend) Gananoque Secondary School, have grown musically, and have had the opportunity to play instruments in public performances with professional and semi-professional musicians.
As well as restructuring individual lessons into a group setting under the title “Wood ‘n’ Strings,” Ken and Stefen teach many special-needs students. Wood ‘n’ Strings encourages amateur musicians to expand their skills and enjoy music to their fullest.
