Summer Music Classes at The bART
Spend your summer exploring new musical horizons at The bART Center for Music.
Summer Session 2023 will begin Monday, June 5, and end on Friday, July 28. Registration will open on Friday, April 14. To pre-register, please visit our website at www.thebart.org.
This summer, we will offer multiple opportunities for all ages, such as:
1. Busy Bear Explores String Instruments:
This is a class for young beginners between the ages of 7 and 10 years old to explore the string family (violin, viola, cello bass). This class is designed to introduce your child to each instrument. It might pique their interest in private lessons for Fall Semester 2023! This class will be offered July 17 through July 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
2. Getting Started with Music Production:
This class is intended for students ages 8 and up. In this class, students will learn the basics of music production by creating their own track. Intermediate and advanced students are also welcome and are welcome to bring existing projects in to refine throughout the class. All students will need to have a laptop they can bring. The class will be offered June 12-23, 2023, 3 times a week for two weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
3. Group Piano for Beginners:
This is a fun class for children between the ages of 4 and 9 years old to develop basic music skills while exploring the keyboard. This class is intended for children with little to no piano instruction and is a perfect way to prepare them for private lessons. This class will take place on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. starting June 20 through August 1.
4. Listen, Talk, Play:
In Listen, Talk, Play, students will be able to explore alternative methods of improvisation. Using our new state-of-the-art recording studio at The bART, students will listen to music by modern composers, talk about their creative methods, and then create (play) personal improvisations which will then be recorded. The class will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in June, starting June 6 through June 29 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
5. Private Lessons:
We will be offering private lessons for students aged 4 through senior adults for violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, guitar, ukulele, flute, and voice.
6. (NEW!) Private Jazz Piano:
We will be opening a private studio for jazz piano and improvisation for those interested in exploring this area in music. To pre-register, please visit our website at www.thebart.org.
