JOSHUA TREE, CA – The Strings Conservatory will again offer the popular summer camp program with exciting new course types and additions. This 3-week intensive summer session will offer different courses for adults and children, including a new “Mommy/Daddy & Me” program for children ages 4-7, beginner class for all ages 8 through adult, and a Philharmonic Prep class for those who already have passed at least the beginner level curriculum. Regardless of level, the camp will give all students a tremendous opportunity to “experiment” with a violin or other orchestral string instrument (i.e. viola, cello) while also learning music theory in a fun and challenging environment. Individuals interested in participating need to register early to ensure a seat in their class and, if desired, to obtain a loaner instrument if there is one available. Loaner instruments from the Cultural Center also require a security deposit. This summer camp will be taught by Phyllis Moss, a 25-year L.A. public schools music educator, and will feature materials from her popular string method book “Right from the Start”. Instruction is correlated to the Visual and Performing Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools.

All classes begin Monday, July 14th, 2014 and run through Thursday, July 31, 2014. Classes are held each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for three-consecutive weeks, with a public open house the nights of the final class. The three classes, their costs, and their times are the following:

MOMMY/DADDY & ME: $75 fee that includes instructional materials (instrument not provided). This introductory class is designed for very young students, ages 4-7, who actively participate in the class with an adult by their side. The class will meet every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 5:30-6:00 pm for three consecutive weeks running July 14-31 with the final class being a public open house. The adult who participates with the child is not charged for the class and is not required to have a violin since they will be assisting the child and learning technique with the child. An instructional binder is included in class price. The Cultural Center does not have loaner violins for students this age so students are required to provide their own violin. For the Participation Agreement, what size instrument one needs, rental and other information go to www.hidesertculturalcenter.com/violin

BEGINNER STRINGS CLASS: $95 fee that includes instructional materials (instrument not included). This class is designed for beginning strings students, ages 8 through adult! The class meets every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6:00-7:15 pm for three consecutive weeks running July 14-31 with the final class being a public open house. The first 45 minutes of class covers instrument technique and the last 30 minutes covers music theory jointly with the intermediate class. Books/materials included in class price. Students must have a violin, viola, or cello by the start of the first class. Some loaner violins are available and must be reserved prior to class.
