New Piano Summer Camp Invites Youth to Learn Piano Basics

UPDATE: The 2013 Piano Summer Camp has been cancelled. Keep checking the Youth Piano Program webpage for information about fall lessons.

This July, the CU Youth Piano Program is offering a new summer camp that will introduce children to the basics of rhythm and music reading. In addition, students will learn to play a simple solo and ensemble pieces, and they will learn about classical music, instruments, and composers with a special focus on Prokofiev and the piece, “Peter and the Wolf.”

Designed for beginners ages 5-7, youth will learn from Elizabeth Leger, an experienced instructor from the College of Music. The camp will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, from July 1 to July 17, 9-10:30 a.m. in the IMIG music building. Participants may also have the opportunity to attend the Colorado Music Festival on July 18 when they perform Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.”

The registration fee is $200, and space is limited. To learn more, visit the CU Youth Piano Program web page or contact Amy Yen-Shi Li at 303-492-5950 or
