SUMMER ARTS PROGRAM

Hoff-Barthelson Music School is the ideal setting for a stimulating, challenging, and fun-filled summer arts program. An exceptional faculty made up of some of the top performers and music educators in the country provide a high-quality experience for students in grades 1–10.

Summertime is perfect for students of all levels to try new instruments, experiment musically, take daily group lessons, and perform every week. For young children, the Summer Arts Program is a superb way to try out instrumental and vocal music making – possibly for the first time – and to discover their particular passion. Students make great progress and form lasting friendships over the program’s five weeks.

Students at all levels choose programs tailored to their individual needs and interests. Classes, workshops, and performance opportunities include group instrumental and voice lessons, orchestra, chamber music, chorus, visual artist, composing with technology, world drumming, chimes, jazz, rock, piano for non-pianists, musical theater, and movement.

An exciting Music Technology Lab program for grades 4–10 gives students a chance to try their hands at the creative process of composition using state-of-the-art software and hardware technology.

Morning, afternoon, and extended day options are available. Registration for the Summer Arts Program opens in January. Please check back then for program details.

SUMMER LESSONS

For students who want to continue their studies during the summer months, we offer private lessons from late May through the end of August. For prospective students, summer is an ideal time to try private lessons. Students are not required to enroll for the full session and may take as many or as few lessons as desired. Accompaniment services and performance opportunities are included.
