Improvising Music

Ages 10 – 18

June 25 – 29, 10:00am – noon

This one-week “Music Improvising for Beginners” camp is the perfect way for students who are involved with school band, orchestra and vocal programs to have fun and stay musically engaged over the summer by learning to be creative with their musical skills! The camp will teach the basics of musical improvisation, all culminating in a Friday concert. Students will get to improvise using backing tracks that include Blues, Pop, Jazz, Rock, Folk and Classical styles! The class is designed to help students become music musically expressive and creative.

Instrumental students must provide their own instruments. (Piano players should contact the instructor to see if an electronic keyboard will be available.) Students should have previous musical experience. It is helpful if a student can play or sing a major scale. Generally, any student who has had a year of previous music experience will benefit from the class.
