Piano Partners – Let’s Duet!
For any instrument, age & experience level.
Have you discovered the joys (& challenges!) of playing music alongside another person? Break out of lonesome practice sessions, and bring some excitement to your musical journey! Students will be appropriately matched to a partner, with consideration to experience & age. After some guidance on the general concept of playing as a duet and other fundamentals, students will work together, with the help of an instructor, to prepare a duet of their choosing. An informal performance will occur at the end of each session.

 

Jam Time Sessions – Let’s Rock!
For vocalists, guitarists, bassists, keyboardist/pianists and drummers
Ages 8 & up, must have some basic skills on an instrument or voice
Are you ready to rock? If playing a duet is just a little too tame for your taste, then we encourage you to try out our most rockin’ Summer Session, Jam Time! Students will be placed into bands of 3-6 members, depending on instrumentation. Each group will rehearse several democratically chosen songs per session, learning & applying a variety of both musical & interpersonal concepts. An informal performance will occur at the end of each session.

 

Pop Choir – Let’s Sing!
Ages 8 & up
This ain’t your school or church choir – get ready to have some serious fun singing popular songs in beautiful harmony! Singing in a choir offers many benefits to vocalists of all levels. Pop choir is for anyone that loves to sing, whether or not you have any prior musical experience. Course goals include: becoming a better listener, learning to trust your own voice, developing muscle and breathing techniques, and improving teamwork skills.

 

Songwriting – Let’s Create!
Ages 10 & up
Have you ever wanted to write your own music but not had any clue where to start? Our songwriting class for beginners will help you harness your creative energy into a real musical piece. Students will learn the basics of song form, chord families, lyrics, melody and other important elements involved with writing music. A great course for those with some background in singing, guitar, or piano, although no experience is required.

 

Ukulele – Let’s Strum!
Ages 8 & up
Find out for yourself why so many people across the nation & world are joining the fun of the ukulele craze! An easy-to-learn & portable instrument, ukuleles have been rising in popularity over recent years – and with excellent reason! Have a blast with us this summer by playing a wide variety of music. Tunes include a mix of: classic rock & folk, modern pop & rock, traditional Hawaiian, seasonal, children’s music and much more (requests welcome).

 

Classical Guitar – Let’s Flamenco!
For experienced guitarists, informal interview/audition required
Ages 12 & up
It’s not always all about rock & roll all night and party every day. If you prefer to make more serene, beautiful music on the guitar, then this is the workshop for you! Classical guitar is a specialized style that involves techniques different than other genres. This workshop is a chance to learn some of the fundamentals and repertoire involved in Classical guitar music.

 

Guitar Improv – Let’s Solo!
For experienced guitarists, informal interview/audition required
Ages 12 & up
Sick of strumming? Ready to melt some faces with a wailing guitar solo? Once you’ve learned the basics on either an acoustic or electric guitar, you’ll have a blast stepping into the spotlight as a lead guitarist. In this workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of guitar improvisation (playing tasteful solos & lead lines) and have an opportunity to try out their first solos in a safe & supportive environment.

 

Jazz Combos – Let’s Swing!
For winds (saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, flute), keyboardist/pianists, guitarists, bassists, and drummers
Ages 10 & up, must have some experience on an instrument
Calling all music students! Are you ready to play some exciting and challenging music? Our small groups will work under the guidance of a professional jazz musician, exploring the fundamentals of playing in the jazz idiom and developing improvisational skills. Students will be divided into small ensembles of 3 to 6 members based on age, experience and instrumentation.

 

Bass Guitar – Let’s Get Low!
Recommended for guitarists, pianists, drummers, or those with some prior musical experience
Ages 10 & up
Everyone needs a bassist! It’s true! Poor old bass is constantly overshadowed by the guitar, so the good folks at Music Time Academy are here to do our part to prevent the extinction of bass players. Join the ranks of Paul McCartney, Flea & John Paul Jones by laying down a fat groove on the low-sounding, four stringed cousin of the guitar. It’s fun, and it’s funky! There’s no groove quite like a good bass groove.

 

Instrument Discovery – Let’s Explore!
For complete beginners, or those with some musical experience that are looking to try new instruments
Ages 8-12
In this unique, exploratory workshop, children will have the opportunity to try new instruments each week, in the hopes to discover one that best fits their personality. We will explore the basics of both popular and obscure musical instruments heard in many styles of music, including classical, jazz, rock, blues and pop.

 

Instrument Discovery meets 12pm-1pm on 7/9, 7/16, 7/23 & 7/30, cost is $70
