MUSIC INFORMATION & REGISTRATION

MUSIC

THE MUSIC PROGRAM is open to children and adults. Our students receive a foundation in classical or jazz which can later be applied to any musical interest. All of our instructors are professionals chosen both for their artistry and teaching skills. We offer instruction in piano, voice, guitar, violin, ute, cello and percussion. Through one-on-one instruction, our students discover their full potential by strengthening their technique, artistry, self-awareness and individuality.

This is a five day intensive composition workshop. Projects will be individually tailored to meet the level of the student. The Young Composer’s Camp aims to ll a gap in students’ music education that is too often overlooked: the ability to write, notate, record, and perform one’s own music. Within a friendly and supportive atmosphere, students will learn a variety of compositional techniques including writing short pieces using harmonic progressions, form, melody and voice leading, as well as orchestration. Students will have their pieces critiqued and the workshop will culminate in a composition project that will be performed for friends and family on the last day of camp. Prerequisites include some level of proficiency with an instrument and reading notated music. Electronic key- boards are used along with a student’s choices of instrument.
