summer fun!

It's cool to walk through the Academy during summer months and hear the music students are exploring. Lately, it's The Beatles, Alicia Keys, movie themes, Broadway selections and more! Students are playing piano trios and some are already getting a head-start on their NCMTA audition pieces.

Glee Campcamps!

We *heart* summer camps! Our first of the summer was GLEE Camp where students learned pop songs, complete with 4 part harmony and choreography. These kids also rehearsed and polished solos and duets for the end-of-camp performance. See a Video Clip! GLEE Camp was directed by Megan Magden Postle.


Mo'zArt Music and Art Camps

Last week our Mo'zArt campers enjoyed learning about the piano and art. In piano, they learned the music alphabet, names of the white keys and how to count quarter, half, dotted half and whole notes! Yes, all in just 5 short days! In art, the campers learned about some of the great artists as well as various painting and drawing techniques. Mo'zArt Camp was directed by Lori Williams and Karissa Cook. See photos from Mo'zArt Camp on our facebook page!
