Beats, Books & Hooks 2018
The broad-based Beats, Books & Hooks (BBH) program gives students a bird’s-eye view of educational and career opportunities in the music industry through an inspirational mix of interactive master classes, guest speakers, and field trip plus an intensive opportunity to take their musicianship to the next level.

As students are introduced to each aspect of the music business, they engage in a real-world exercise to create, build and promote a virtual record label and artist.

Each afternoon, the students’ focus turns to developing and refining their skills and technical proficiency as performing instrumentalists through expert instruction, rehearsals, and critiques. The week-long session culminates in individual and group live performances open to the public.

NEW! Vocal Workshop 2018
The newly implemented Vocal Workshop program will allow students the opportunity to learn many techniques, strengthen and build their vocal capacity, perform sight-reading/sight-singing exercises, collaborate with program participants and/or work independently to create an archival recording of an original composition or cover an existing work(s). Students will learn how to be intentional in their interpretation of lyrics and musical phrasing, creating a polished/refined performance product in the process Improve their execution of performance repertoire in the areas of classical arias/Italian art songs, jazz standards, pop, and theatre. The workshop culminates in live a performance open to the public.

Summer Music Technology 2018
In the technology-rich, creativity-based learning environment of the week-long program students are immersed in music technology as they learn from professional musicians how to compose, mix and master music using industry-standard software and hardware.  Over the course of the week, the students compose popular, classical and jazz music using professional-grade digital audio workstations and notation software, learn how to market music products, and develop finished MP3 files of their own compositions for presentation and future use in college and audition portfolios, as well as on social media and self-publishing websites.  The session culminates in a presentation open to parents and the community.
