TUESDAYS

“MUSIC LAB!”

“MUSIC LAB”

Music FUNdamentals, World Music, Composition & Style. Taught by the incredible Joshua Breslauer! Students will have the opportunity to dive deep into the bedrock of how music is made. They will use a variety of percussion instruments; drums, shakers, glockenspiels and more! to experience music making from every angle. We will use all of these tools to focus, in a fun and interactive way, on the “math of music:” note reading, rhythm, harmony, creating our own compositions and especially ensemble work! We hope that by creating this special space, devoted to the specific goals of cementing solid musicianship, teamwork and the laying of a foundation for a love of creating and being a part of musical expression; will give our students both the music “chops” and confidence to excel in any future musical endeavors.
