SUMMER Music EoucATION While it may seem that winter is still in full swing, summer will be upon us in no time, and with it a host of music education opportunities. Now is the time to start planning summer activities, and we hope the listings that following will assist you in choosing the appropriate program for yourself or your children. There are programs to suit all ages, levels and interests, from toddler-oriented to advanced professional training. In the latter category for example, the Banff Centre, Domaine Forget, the National Academy Orchestra, Orford, Silver Creek Summer Music, Summer Opera Lyric Theatre, Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute, the Violin and Chamber Music Master Course and Westben Arts Festival offer private instruction, master classes or orchestral/chamber training geared toward the emerging professional musician. Amateurs of all ages can enjoy a range of music-making opportunities and instruction at two CAM MAC locations: Lake MacDonald in Quebec, and Lakefield College in Lakefield Ontario. Kids and teenagers can explore their musical interests and develop their skills at the Addison Music Learning Centre (you can record a demo CD here!), Down Town Summer Strings, Huckleberry Music Camp, the lnterprovincial Music Camp (which in addition to classical also offers programs in Jazz and Rock), Music at Port Milford (for more advanced teens), Showtime Music Theatre Daycamp, the Royal Conservatory of Music (which also offers classes for adults and teachers), and Yamaha Superstars. There are several Suzuki camps, which offer teacher training as well. And new this year, for those seeking adventure and refinement, French Farmhouse Holidays presents choral workshops led by two of Canada's foremost choral conductors (Diane Loomer and Tafelmusik's lvars Taurins) in the heart of the French countryside! Please see the listings below for more summer music. camps, and be sure to visit their websites for details.
