The School of Community Music at Southeastern Louisiana University held its annual summer camp in early summer.
The camp was led by Robert Schwartz, director of Southeast Bands, with the help of some students from the Southeast College of Music and bassoon faculty member Adrian Fonseca-Tellez.
Daily camp activities included wind bands, chamber bands, master classes, jazz ensemble, jazz combos, improvisation, theory classes, and private lessons.
“This year we had a group of very enthusiastic and capable young musicians at our music camp. They were eager to learn and gave a wonderful final concert at the end of the camp,” said Community Music School Principal Jivka Duke. “We hope to see them all come back next summer. The camp is a great educational and recreational opportunity for band students to take their skills to the next level, while having fun and making friends.
Registration is open for the fall semester of Community Music School at Southeastern Louisiana University. The 13-week fall semester will begin August 29 and will offer one-to-one lessons in a variety of musical instruments and voices to students of all ages at Southeastern’s main campus in Hammond and the Livingston Literacy Center in Walker.
Opportunities for music theory lessons and ensemble training are available upon request. Students will still be able to choose between in-person and online instruction.
The school will offer reduced tuition to students who received reduced or free lunch at their school during the 2016-2017 school year.
Registration for the fall session will remain open throughout the semester; however, all registrations received after August 22 will have a $20 late fee added to the tuition fee.
