The Summer Music Academy at St. Gregory's Episcopal Church in Boca Raton is a dynamic and comprehensive music day camp for elementary to high school age students. Our mission is to encourage and educate our attendees in their musical talents, help them grow as young musicians, and feed their love of music. With its nationally-recognized instructors, private and group lessons, and welcoming environment, the Academy helps young musicians take their talents to the next level in just one week.
The 2016 Summer Music Academy proudly offers instruction in piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, choral singing, icon writing, and contemporary music for teens - something for every student of every age! In each discipline, we welcome intermediate to advanced students.
At our Academy, we take a "learn by doing" approach, with students spending the majority of the day playing their instruments and honing their voices with guidance from instructors. To round out the day camp experience, students also receive lessons in music theory and music history.
Students also get performance experience: on Sunday, August 7, Academy attendees are encouraged to participate in a group performance during the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service at St. Gregory's.
To maximize your child’s learning, we structure our Summer Music Academy to include individual lessons and group sessions. One-on-one lessons provide the personalized instruction your young musician needs, while group sessions provide a chance for “jam sessions” and help your child get comfortable performing in a group setting.
Students are typically separated by age and ability into small groups that rotate between lessons in piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, and choral singing. Teenage attendees may also participate in contemporary music sessions, including jazz and rock. Individual lessons are worked in throughout, while group class sessions are held each day.
A unique part of the Academy is our optional Icon Writing Workshop for ages 12 and over. Students will write the image of St. Cecilia, the patroness of musicians. This is an additional offering directed by Brooks Wilson, director of St. Gregory's Icon Guild. Space is limited to 12 students and the cost is $35 (students must also be registered for the Academy). For more information about icon writing, contact Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-409-2245.
