There is no month of the yearfor compiling and publishing a print guide to summer music educationthat does not contain either application deadlines that havealready passed, or else have not yet been set!So over the coming months and years we will continue to developthis resource online, to serve as an ongoing, ever-ready guide for youin your search for meaningful musical exploration during those headymonths of the year when, for many people, daily grind can takes aback seat to personal growth and exploration.The following 29 profiles are a fascinating cross-section of what’sout there. (Four of them, newly received, appear first, in their entirety.The other 25, previously printed in the March issue, and excerptedhere, are already safely lodged online.) Taken collectively, they offer anextraordinary insight into the range of opportunity that awaits: fromacquiring some real-world playing experience to sitting in the masterclass of your dream clarinet teacher; from getting the chance to take adeep breath and get some practising done on your chosen instrument,to setting your specialty aside and connecting with other instrumentsor aspects of music-making. Each of the summer music programs outthere has a particular mandate and methodology, and selecting theflavour that suits your needs—though sometimes daunting—can leadto a summer break that is not just enjoyable but rewarding.For some of these programs it’s still not too late to apply for thecoming summer ahead. For others, you’ll need to add them to abucket list for the years ahead. All roads lead to summer, as the titleof this article suggests; if not the summer right ahead, then to someparticular life-changing summer in the years ahead.TO ACCESS THIS WHOLENOTE SUMMER MUSIC EDUCATION GUIDEONLINE VISIT THEWHOLENOTE.COM/RESOURCESTO JOIN THEWHOLENOTESUMMER MUSIC DIRECTORYAddress inquiries by email to summer@thewholenote.comor call 416-323-2232 x26TheWholeNote Directory TeamProject Editor: Karen Ages:Directory sales and services: Adrienne SurteesLayout and design: Bryson WinchesterProofreading: Paul Ennis and Kevin April 1 - May 7, 2015 | 57CAMMAC MUSIC CENTRE
