Dreaming of Summer: Enroll in Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Summer Arts Program!
Early-bird discounts available through March 30
Jazz, Rock, Musical Theater, and Music Technology Classes among offerings
As winter continues its icy grip, what better time of year to start making plans for summer?
Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Summer Arts Program (SAP) provides budding musicians in the 2nd through 10th grades multiple opportunities for artistic exploration and friendship. Taught by top-flight faculty, offerings include instrumental classes, chamber music, chorus, large ensembles, visual arts, rock, jazz, musical theatre, and frequent performance opportunities. Students at all levels receive instruction in a program individually tailored to their needs and interests.
“Unfettered by schoolwork and the scheduling challenges often faced during the school year, SAP students have the latitude to try additional instruments, experiment musically, take lessons every day, and perform each week,” says Joe Piscitelli, the program’s dynamic director. “Consequently, they’re able to make tremendous progress and develop lasting friendships over the program’s five weeks (June 25 – July 27, 2018).”
Registration is currently underway; Early-bird discounts are in effect through March 30, 2018.
Mary Margulis-Ohnuma, mother of three SAP participants shares “For many years now, our family has planned our summers around the kids attending Hoff-Barthelson’s Summer Arts Program. The program offers opportunities to work with a world-class faculty in a fluid format that catalyzes learning. SAP provides a warm and welcoming environment that is at once familiar from summer to summer and yet also manages to provide new challenges from year to year.”
