A creative approach to composing through playful engagement with rhythm, melody, harmony, form, and notation. Students are required to come with the beginning of a composition (does not need to be notated) which they will develop and share on the final day of class along with the group-created compositions. Enrollment will be limited to allow for individual attention, small-group work, and whole-group activities. Appropriate for all levels and instruments. Advanced students will be challenged, beginning students will be boosted in their composition efforts. Tuition includes tickets to daily Chamber Music Festival concerts from 12:15-12:45 p.m. in the St. Mark's Sanctuary. Parents are encouraged to purchase a Parent's Pass and attend concerts with their young musicians.
