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.

Students at all levels participate in programs tailored to their individual needs and interests. Classes, workshops, and performance opportunities include instrumental classes; orchestra, wind ensemble, and chorus; musical theater, jazz, rock, world drumming, music technology instruction, chamber music, and more. Morning, afternoon, and extended day options are available. See the program brochure for a complete description.

We take great care to assess each child’s particular interests and needs before designing their program, so the first step for interested families is to request a placement interview—not an audition, but a welcoming introduction to Hoff-Barthelson’s individualized approach to music education with Joseph Piscitelli, Director of the Summer Arts Program. To schedule an interview contact: Lucy Rosenberg, summerarts@hbms.org.

Summer Lessons
For students who want to continue their studies during the summer months, we offer private lessons on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from late May through the end of July. 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.
