Like many people of his generation, Tynan Groves fell in love with music after hearing the grungy sounds of Nirvana.
“They blew my mind,” says Groves. “It was that rush of emotion that got me. When I was 12 and I heard their songs, I can remember that moment as vividly as we’re sitting here.”
Now he and his wife Shelly, sole proprietors of Groves Music; a music school they operate out of their home in Coleman, are trying share their passion with the community.
On June 1, Groves Music will be holding a rock and roll benefit concert at the Polish Hall in Coleman to raise funds for its students to attend summer music workshops.
“We live in this community, we work here. It’s our life’s blood. So we wanted to give back to the students that are helping us out,” says Groves.
The highlight of the show will feature all of the Groves’ 40 students putting on a rendition of Led Zepplin’s “Kashmir.”
Spectators will also be treated to Paul Pichurski, Principal of Isabelle Sellon School, playing drums, grade four teacher Jonina Millis on viola and Deb Goldstein, one half of the musical team Wendell and the Deb, playing cello.
Tynan says they’re putting together a string orchestra complete with violins, cellos, guitars, banjos and mandolins, while he himself will be performing vocals.

“This arrangement of the classic hit song is sure to thrill the audience,” he says.
Groves’ students range in age from 6 to 60. Few of his younger students are listening to Nirvana these days; his female students are listening to Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
“The boys might also be listening to Taylor Swift, but they try to hide it,” he says.
Groves says there are many music camps in the area including one at the Hills are Alive Music and Dance Culture Festival in June, The Great Canadian Barn Dance in July, and the NimbleFingers Blue Grass and Old Time Music Festival in August.
All these camps have entry fees that Groves hopes to help cover with the funds that are raised.
Groves hopes the benefit concert will become an annual event and he also hopes to begin a summer music camp here in the Crowsnest Pass in the near future.
