Springing Into Summer Sweetness
What good is the warmth of summer, without the joy of music to give it sweetness? And sweet as listening to music can be when the restraints of our regular schedules have been lifted, how much more so to engage in summer music-making! To remind ourselves of why we pour passion into musical activity in a context that leaves us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, because it is out of the ordinary.
If you are thinking about music programs for yourself, your children or your whole family, our annual Summer Music Education directory is a great place to start (whether you are raring to go this summer, or already kicking yourself for leaving things too late again!
There are many options to choose from here, whether you are an amateur musician or an emerging professional. The 35 profiles below, written by the organizations themselves, offer a singular insight into the range of musical opportunity that awaits.
There are programs for musicians young and old, geared toward classical music, vocals, songwriting, jazz, rock, music theatre, guitar and much more. Residential programs will get you out of the city, province, or even country, while day camps are available for those who are looking for something closer to home. Though some of these programs have application deadlines that may have passed or are fast approaching, it is not too late to apply to most of them. We are confident that you’ll find something that suits your interests, whether for this summer or for many summers to come!
This directory will be maintained and updated online on an ongoing basis, year round, so check back at thewholenote.com/resources for updates.
