¥10 ·rSrec&~l :Fe~hn·e by Bernard Martin Camps, Retreats and Vacations - Learning Music this Summer There are two kinds of people: those who sit down in the month of March with maps and travel brochures and make their summer vacation plans far in advance; and those who don't. For you in the first group, we present our third annual roundup of summer music learning: summer camps, family programs, conservatory-level summer academies, adult education programs and music tours. Now is the time to select your children's music camp, fit the family vacation time around music lessons, or choose a retreat where you can polish your technique. Programs are grouped by age level. Some programs are only for children, some are geared at seniors. The "All Ages" category means a program offers courses for students of many ages, but not that each course is open to everyone. "Children and Youth" programs are mainly for those 18 and under. "Young Musicians" are musicians young in experience, but not necessarily age. The World Wide Web is rapidly becoming the fastest way to get complete and up-to-date program information for these programs. When available, web sites are given first, followed by postal address, phone, and e-mail. We have done what we can to ensure information is correct and current at time of publication. Please confirm all details including program contents, entrance requirements, deadlines, and prices with the individual organizations. A program's presence on the list does not imply an endorsement by WholeNote. All Ages The Royal Conservatory of Music bas perhaps the most comprehensive and varied selection of music courses in Ontario, for students of all ages at bt:ginm:r, iut~::nm:tliale, and advanced levels. The RCM runs its Summer Never Sounded So Good program between July 4 and August 11 on its downtown Toronto and Mississauga campuses. RCM offers private lessons for all ages and levels, and a six-week condensed Theory Class (July through early August) in preparation for the RCM exam. Call RCM to confirm this year's schedule. Courses designed especially for children in past years have included Music with Your Baby (6 months to 3 years), Preparatory Music for 3 year olds accompanied by a caregiver, Eurythmics (3 to 5), Summer Suzuki Plus (3+ ), and Keyboards and Computers for 6 to 10 year olds with up to 2 years of piano. Recent adult programs have included introductory courses like An Introduction to Singing and Guitar from Scratch, as well as Recorder Ensembles, Baroque Ensembles, and Composition. Music teachers have enhanced their professional skills ·with courses like Piano Pedagogy, 0&-ff Schulwerk, Kodaly Level II, Technology for Music Teachers, and Early Childhood Music Education.
