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.”
