Snow is finally falling, so naturally that means it’s time to think about summer! Registration for this year’s edition of Summer Music Festival at South Shore Conservatory starts on January 30th. There are a bunch of wonderful programs to choose from for musicians in grades 4 through college. I have the privilege of working with Band Explorers, and both the Summer and Festival Wind Ensembles. Visit this link and check out the flyers below for more information. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
This summer’s shaping up to be a busy one – I’m also looking forward to teaching at NEMC’s Chamber Music Intensive from July 25th to August 8th! We’re lucky to have so much wonderful chamber literature for our instrument, and it will be a joy to explore it in such a beautiful setting. Please see below for program details, deadlines, etc.
The New England Music Camp Chamber Music Intensive (CMI) is a 2-week program for gifted high school musicians between the ages of 14-18 yrs old (strings, winds, and piano) on the beautiful shores of Snow Pond.
Applications are open through March 15th (this is a soft deadline).
Applicants will be required to submit an audition video of 1 or 2 selections from the standard and/or contemporary repertoire; the required excerpts*, and one teacher recommendation.
*Upon submitting your application, excerpts for your instrument will be sent out by CMI Registrar Bethany Neidbala. firstname.lastname@example.org
There is financial aid available.
I’m thrilled to be teaching at South Shore Conservatory’s Summer Music Festival again this year! Programs are available for students in grade 4 through college. Some of last summer’s highlights included a faculty-student Mozart octet performance, a world premiere for wind ensemble, and many wonderful hours of learning and music-making. For more information, please visit: summer.sscmusic.org/smf – registration is due by June 15th, so don’t miss out!
Join me at South Shore Conservatory for an outdoor, socially-distanced Summer Music Festival experience! There’s nothing better than the joy of making music together in person, especially after how isolated we’ve all been during the past year. Musical opportunities are available for students in grade 4 through college, and tuition assistance is available. I hope to see you there!
In light of the ongoing pandemic, South Shore Conservatory is now offering a virtual summer festival, SMFConnect. Designed for students in grades 5 through college, the structure and schedule of the program is flexible, allowing students to pursue different interests and levels of time commitment. I will be offering group lessons (grades 5-6), private lessons (grades 7 and up), horn masterclasses, and audition workshop. Hope to see you there!
I’m excited to join the faculty of the Summer Music Festival at the South Shore Conservatory this year. I will be working with horn students in the Summer and Festival Wind Ensembles. Looking forward to a great two weeks of music-making!
Come take a tour of All Newton Music School, and check out our instrument sampler! The best way to find an instrument that’s right for you or your child is through hands-on experience. I’ll be offering playing demos and mini lessons, and who knows – you might fall in love! Click HERE for more details, and to RSVP.
Registration for AQBW 2019 is now open! Ryan, Greg and I had blast with our students last year, and we’re looking forward to round 2, only this time bigger and brassier with Katie and Matthew. Learn more and register at: andromedaquintet.com
Now that summer weather is here, I’m pleased to announce Andromeda Quintet Brass Week – a brass chamber music program my colleagues and I are running in Wellesley from July 23rd through 27th.
It’s hard to believe with a chill still in the air, but summer is right around the corner… This June, WCMS is offering a week-long afternoon camp for students who want to join the band next fall! Designed for those entering grades 4 through 7, students will learn the basics about each instrument family, and find the woodwind or brass instrument that’s right for them. Instruments are provided, and financial aid is available. You can register here, or contact me if you have any questions.
