There are a limited number of slots available for a half-hour piano lesson. This option is available to pianists at any level. There are several ways to use the time:
- Get feedback on specific repertoire to take it to the next level musically
- Review fundamental techniques
- For absolute beginners, get an introduction to the piano
Lessons will be held during camp hours. Recorded audition may be required. If you select the Piano Lesson option for your child during registration, you will receive the details for this.
There are a limited number of slots available for a one-hour organ lesson. This option is available to pianists who play at least at an intermediate level, or organists of any level.
Pianists will learn some of the basics of playing the pipe organ and begin to understand how organ technique differs from piano technique. The lesson will help to “demystify” the organ with the hope that the student will be open to organ lessons in the future. Students who already have some experience on the organ will get an assessment of their technique and suggestions on how to improve their skill and musicality.
Lessons will be held during camp hours. Recorded audition may be required. If you select the Organ Lesson option for your child during registration, you will receive the details for this.
On Day 4 of the camp, we will hold a master class. In the master class, students sing a prepared piece in front of professional instructors and an audience. Then they are given feedback on their performance and the instructors work with them for up to 10 minutes to delve into the finer and subtler aspects of vocal technique and musicality.
Participants walk away from master classes with a fresh view of their music and with a renewed appreciation and awe of the expressive possibilities in their own voices. They also gain self-confidence and the respect of their peers by their willingness to be critiqued in front of an audience.
There is no fee for the master class. However, as there are only three slots available, aspiring participants must submit a recorded audition. If you select the Master Class option for your child during registration, you will receive the details for this.
