Crescendo Summer Session is a shortened version of the Crescendo for Piano and String program which runs through the academic year. It provides enrichment for your individual lessons, gives you motivation and goals to work towards, and guides you through the Crescendo piano curriculum level by level.
This summer, we are giving our current Crescendo students — as well as students new to Crescendo — an opportunity to continue their journey of musical growth by adding a play-a-thon, a final jury, and six music labs.
Music lab students will be split into Zoom groups depending on their level and age. They will have fun, interactive educational sessions on music history and theory, practice strategies, solving technical problems and meetings with professional musicians. These classes will be led by teachers of MacPhail faculty.
5 Music Labs on June 16, 23, 30; July 14, 21
Levels 1-3: 10:00am
Levels 4-7: 11:00am
Levels 8-Artist: 10:00am
Play-a-thons are casual performance opportunities for Crescendo students to try their pieces and get feedback from other instructors. Performances are interspersed with short musical quizzes and stories facilitated by the host of the event.
The final event of the Summer Crescendo Session is a jury. By participating in the Summer Crescendo Session, students who are actively practicing and studying new pieces will be able to demonstrate their progress at this jury and will not have to wait for the following one in January.
Jury dates: August 4 or August 18
