Please read below for information about the Music School’s summer programs. This summer, we will offer Music & Movement, Summer Jam Camp, and two weeks of Creative Arts Camp. Most summer programs assume no prior musical experience, except where noted.

 

 

Music & Movement

Come and play with songs, stories, movement games, rhythm instruments, improvisation, art, dance, and fun!
 
Open to all children 5 months-6 years old and their parents/caregivers. Summer M&M classes will meet on Tuesdays, from June 7 – July 12. 
Spotlight Studio Ensemble

For students entering grades 5-12 in the fall of 2022

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for Spotlight Studio Ensemble at the Music School with Dorothy Braker, on Thursdays from 2-3 pm beginning July 7! Click here for info or to register.

Do you love to perform or really want to get comfortable with being in the spotlight? This 6-week session, led by cellist Dorothy Braker, will allow young musicians to perform their chosen (4 minutes or less) solo selection with an accompaniment of their peers. The 6-week journey leads the group in learning orchestral techniques to accompany solos along with techniques for the soloist to lead their orchestra, to allow each student to achieve at their best possible level of success. It culminates in a group performance.

Note: Students should have the ability to perform an intermediate piece (for string players, Suzuki book 3 or above) with confidence. They must be able to read music well, be comfortable with key signatures going to 2 sharps/flats, and adapt to group situations. Suitable for orchestral instruments and piano (limited to one pianist).

Summer Jam Camp 

For students entering grades 5-12 in the fall of 2022

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for Summer Jam Camp at the Music School, the week of July 18! Click here for info or to register.

Open to students in grades 5-12 (including students that would like to bring their existing band), this camp invites instrumentalists and singers to come together for a week of jamming in many styles, including jazz, rock, and blues. There will be jam bands for both beginning and advanced students. Participants will develop ensemble skills, increase proficiency and technique on their instrument/voice, work in the recording studio, and create an album of their projects at the end of the week together.

Creative Arts Camp
Private Lessons

Summer 2022:

We will again offer a mix of virtual and in-person lessons this year, upon mutual agreement of student and instructor and following safety guidelines from the State of NH and the CDC. Please contact the Music School if you are interested in individual instruction.  

Summer is a wonderful time to try a new instrument or voice lessons, or to sharpen your skills. We offer a flexible semester where students can sign up for as many lessons as they would like!
