Our six-week summer program is a wonderful way to keep the momentum going. Recent studies published in the Washington Post ( read the article here) show that many children who take three months off from learning experience some form of "brain drain".
Also, the summer is an excellent time to try out something 'new' without making a huge investment. Perhaps you always wanted to learn the guitar, or work on vocal technique? Our summer session has both affordable private and group classes available.
For Preschool students, we offer the Music For Little Mozarts program. Every class session includes singing, dancing, listening to music, playing instruments, storytime, coloring, and other activities. We will introduce your child to basic musical notation symbols and give an introduction to the piano. We will also introduce your child to many of the most famous composers of classical music.
For children ages 5-7 we offer Little Voices - Young singers come together and experience their first group singing class in Little Voices. This class introduces music notation and beginning singing techniques through vocal play and music games. The students will put on a small presentation for family and friends the last day of class.
For students ages 7-11, we offer Beginning Piano Sampler. Perfect for the student with an interest in the piano and the parent with reservations about their child's lasting commitment to the study. The motivating peer setting will give parents an idea of how dedicated their child will be and serves as a good trial period before investing in an instrument. No experience needed-we start with the basics!! Students must have access to a piano at home to practice and complete class assignments.
For students ages 9-12, we offer Beginning Pop Guitar. This beginning guitar class is perfect for the student with an interest in the guitar and no prior music lesson experience. Playing the real guitar is much more fun than Guitar Hero! Students must have their own guitar for use during the class and practice at home. Price includes materials.
Also for students ages 8-12, we offer U R A STAR!. Classes will focus on basic techniques of singing, breathing, projection, confidence, correct vocal function, group and solo singing. No pressure! Just getting to know your voice and opening up a little. For beginners and advanced vocalists alike.
For the more mature set, we offer Piano for the Busy Adult which meets once weekly for six weeks. Our adult piano program teaches facility in reading and playing music of varying styles, basic chord progressions, harmonization, ear training and theory. A piano at home is necessary in order to complete class assignments.
Private piano lessons are also available for students ages 7-adult.
