Rock Bands, just like you know and love them! We’ve had so much interest in playing in bands, we’ve expanded how many we’re offering from previous years. Students are grouped by age and playing level. Always a blast, this class covers musical teamwork, stage presence, some basic arranging, and of course helps students refine their individual skills. Lifelong friends are made in our summer bands every year! Taught by James Lippert and Sal Santana.

Led Zeppelin Band

As one can expect from any good tribute band, this Led Zeppelin band is all about recreating an experience. We’d like to take our audience back in time, to the 70s, to experience a glimpse of the magic of being at a Zeppelin show. Comprising a setlist of favorites of all the participants, the goal for the program is to give the students a chance to play this iconic music while also engaging in deep, nuanced study of the material to give even die-hard fans a satisfying and exciting concert. Taught by Sal Santana.

This is a crash course on the process of exploring your opportunities in the creative industry. All artists, and most people in the creative industries, are essentially small business owners. In this class we learn some of the leading factors of business success, and how we can apply them to creating our own career plan.

 

This class isn’t just for people already committed to pursuing music performance as a profession! We encourage all students ages 13 and up to consider attending this class to foster personal growth as a professional! Taught by Rosie Rion Porco.

Anatomy for Singers

Vocal health is a key component to getting your message across, be it through song or in speech. In this one day course you will learn some of the lesser known but vital parts of the anatomy specific to better singing. We will practice some advanced, though surprisingly simple, neurological techniques that will help to maximize and personalize a treatment plan custom designed for your body. The class is broken into very simple processes that will allow you to efficiently and effectively begin to understand the why behind the goofy exercises singers do! This helps with compliance and leads to better overall vocal results. Taught by Amy Cutter.

In this hands-on musical experience, you will learn about rhythmic basics and their importance in all genres of music. Students will rotate between various percussion instruments such as djembes and shakers, and will be introduced to techniques used especially in Latin American music. We will play together as an ensemble along to classic songs and each student will have the opportunity to perform a solo on any instrument of their choice! If you have your own instrument you are welcome to bring that as well. Taught by Brendan White.
