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!
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
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.
Though it’s hard to believe, summer is right around the corner! June through August is the perfect time for students to expand their musical horizons. It can be challenging to practice by yourself for three months – participating in a summer program helps to keep students motivated, while enjoying all the good things summer has to offer! Listed below are a variety of opportunities across MA and New England for students in middle school and high school. There are many more programs located across the country, and abroad – more resources are listed below the table.
