“Summer, Time To Play With Others”
A woman told me that singing was the way she made new friends. Her husband’s job relocated them every two years, and she promptly sought out the local community singing groups in each new town. The love of raising voices together was all it took to open doors and get over that hump of meeting new people..
Summertime at The Shedd encourages young musicians to do the same. Come learn something new along with new – after the first day -- friends.
If you play violin, horn or guitar, for example, try something a little different from what you learn in school. Join a Jazz Camp, the Mariachi Camp, or the Chamber Ensemble. You’ll stretch out your skills, learn different music, and play with students from other schools and communities.
Singers: mariachi needs you too! Or you can join the cast for musical theatre samplers, or for the younger set, explore traditional world and American songs while trying out ukulele, rhythm instruments, vaudeville skills, and more.
Haven’t played before? Neither have some of the others in the Guitar Camp – a great lifelong instrument. We’ll get you going and show you where you can take it. Or create your own personal “Music Box” series and try out several different instruments before you choose what you want to play in next fall’s school orchestra or band programs.
We emphasize “playing” your instrument at The Shedd!! Come have some summer fun making music with new friends!
