Take The Stage!
teens and adults get the chance to step up in front
of an audience and practice building skills in their chosen medium. We've had
musicians, actors, poets and even board members from various organizations use
our methods to gain confidence, enhance their personal power and increase their
enjoyment in public expression.
Preschoolers, toddler and even babies can explore rhythm, harmony and movement
with us through a variety of music and performance play. Optional add-on: At the
end of each session, individual tots take turns getting a “private lesson” with one of
our teachers to help them and their caregivers learn ways to greater foster their
unique interests and motivations at home.
Creative arts, self-empowerment and leadership all rolled into one fun project! Any
kind of vocal performance from fronting a rock band to musical theater to
singing could be covered. In the end the program becomes whatever the
group makes it, because its focus is co-created by teens and teachers alike, and
each member has an influence on its development.
We also bring in guest artists through our non-profit house concert series. A free show is usually included with each workshop, plus chances for participants to join our featured guests onstage. More info at Facebook.com/SummerStreetMusicSeries (seasonal... check back for updates).
