Programs Available in Fall 2013
Music Basics for Kids : Preschoolers learn the basics of pitch, rhythm and notation through games and exercises involving singing and physical movement.
Dalcroze Eurhythmics: Using kinesthetic movement as the primary mode of learning, the Dalcroze pedagogy enables children to transfer their physical experiences to a conceptual understanding of music theory.
Summer String Quartet Camp : Join the Bryant Park Quartet, Stony Brook Community Music Program’s ensemble-in-residence, for a week-long summer music camp that will focus on developing important chamber music skills. Audition required.
Pre-College Division : The Pre-College Division offers coaching and performance opportunities in chamber music and a rich curriculum that includes composition, music theory and aural skills. Students enrolled in the program are already accomplished musicians in their schools who are looking for new, challenging and exciting experiences that are not offered anyplace else. Audition required.
Community Chamber Music Workshops : Designed for adult music enthusiasts, the chamber music program offers a supportive, non-threatening environment for instrumentalists and singers to enrich their musical experience. Participants are placed in well-matched ensembles and meet with a coach for five 90-minute sessions in preparation for an informal concert in the Staller Recital Hall. Two eight-week sessions per academic year; ability to read music is required.
