Summer Music intensive 2018: Mozart
We are so excited to announce a new project for Summer 2018: the Summer Music Intensive. This seminar is intended for students who have at least 2 years of music experience and will meet 4 Saturday morning through the month of June. This Summer, we will be focusing on an in-depth study of the life and works of one of the most famous and influential composers of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Over the month of June, classes will be held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM. Class time will focus on learning about Mozart's life: his prodigious talent as a young child, his career composing and performing at some of Europe's most lavish courts, and finally his later years. We will also be doing a survey of Mozart's works as well as learning about some of the most important musical forms of the Classical Era.
The goal of the seminar is to give students an extensive understanding of the life and work of Mozart. By the end of the seminar they will be familiar with Mozart's most famous works and will be able to identify and analyze different classical forms. Students will be assigned a few projects over the course of the month which include: playing a work by Mozart, writing program notes on that piece, analyzing and listening to a few of Mozart's pieces.
As part of the final class, students will have a chance to perform the pieces they've learned and share their research and performance notes with their families and classmates.
We are looking forward to a exciting month of Mozart classes and hope to see you there!
Note: While we intend for this class to be fun, we also want students to learn as much as they can! There will be a few take home projects for students to complete. Students will also be expected to learn one piece by Mozart over the duration of the month. Pieces can be worked on in private lessons as well. Pieces and projects will be assigned based on the students age and level. If students are interested in participating but are not able to attend all 4 classes, please contact us for special permission.
