Open House And Enrollment For Summer Underway At Hoff-Barthelson Music School
Enrollment for Hoff-Barthelson Music School's Summer Arts Program (SAP) is now underway! Attend an Open House on Thursday, January 31, from 7-9 pm (snow date, February 7) at the School, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale. At the Open House you will meet Program Director Joe Piscitelli and SAP faculty; learn about the many facets of the program; enjoy students in performance; participate in a demonstration class to experience the fun first hand; and meet and mingle with SAP students and parents. Attendees can also take advantage of a special Open House registration discount.
The Summer Arts Program (SAP) provides a joyous, transformative opportunity for artistic exploration for students in grades 1-10 where students form lasting friendships that help catalyze and reinforce learning. Each participant's program is individually tailored to his or her needs and interests.
Taught by top-flight faculty, offerings include instrumental classes, orchestra, chamber music, visual arts, world drumming, music technology, chorus, piano for non-pianists, jazz, rock, musical theater, and frequent performance opportunities.
Unfettered by schoolwork and the scheduling challenges faced during the school year, SAP students have the latitude to try additional instruments, experiment musically, take lessons every day, and perform each week. Consequently, they're able to make tremendous progress over the program's five weeks (July 1 through August 2, 2019). Morning only, extended day and afternoon only options available. Early bird discounts are available through March 29!
Carolyn Zhu, mother of two participants shares, "at the Summer Arts Program my kids grew as young musicians and as people." Mary Margulis-Ohnuma, mother of three participants shares, "the program offers opportunities to work with a world-class faculty in a fluid format that catalyzes learning, and provides a warm, welcoming environment."
