Sounds like Summer Music School will have different look

Music is a very personal experience.

This year’s Warren County Summer Music School is going to feature some new experiences.

They’ll be personal, but not in person.

“Warren County Summer Music School is pleased to announce programming for its 31st season, June 8 through 26,” Director Denise Pearson said. “Due to the current pandemic and social distancing, all instruction will be online.”

“The support of our benefactors and the generous Warren community allows us to offer classes this year with no tuition fee,” Pearson said. “Students entering fifth grade and older — even adults — are welcome to enroll at www.wcsms.org.”

“Students will be able to participate in two classes daily for three weeks, one music and another of choice – visual arts, dance, or music,” she said. “Although we won’t experience our usual synergy when we met all together at Beaty, nor can all of our traditional classes be offered, we are excited about what we can do to support arts education.”

“New classes this year include GarageBand, bass guitar lessons, music appreciation class, World Music Adventures, and classes involving multiple disciplines — DaVinci’s Corner which combines exploration of our natural world with visual art and Exploring Western/European Music through Visual Arts.”

Classes are limited in size and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those interested may find course descriptions and details and may register by visiting www.wcsms.org.
