Introducing 6-Week Mini Camps!

Maestro Music Institute is adding new classes! Starting in June, we will be offering 4 new ensemble mini camps in a variety of styles and vocations. Each of these groups will meet for a total of 6 weeks to learn & perform specific music and styles of playing. Students participating will be paired up with other music students around their same age and ability. These classes are intended to give the students a better understanding of a specific instrument or style of music within an ensemble setting. During the course of a 6-week period, students will work together to create a tight knit group of musicians that culminate in a performance at the end of the course. Groups will meet on Saturday mornings for 50-minute classes beginning in June for 5 weeks and performing on the 6th week at Historic Grant Ave in Denver. During this first session of classes, we’re excited to be offering 4 brand new classes to choose from! Students can choose one or more classes during the same 6-week session. Discounts are available for students attending more than 1 class.

This class teaches children between the ages of 7 years old – 15 years old acting/performance skills that not only will give them a strong basis for acting and theater, if they should choose to pursue it; they also teach improvisational skills as they pertain to communication and flexible thinking so individuals are more adept in school and life situations. Emphasis will be placed on Presence and Presentation, Script Reading/Interpretation, Dialogue/Monologue Techniques, and Stage Presence and Movement.  These skills are taught through games and exercises that encourage participants to interact with each other on intellectual and emotional levels, as well as through physical activity.

Are you interested in drumset or want to go more in-depth into what it takes to be a drummer? This six-week course will teach you all the fundamentals necessary to becoming a drummer. You will learn everything from the basics of how to hold a drum stick to the ins and outs of the basic rock and jazz beats that are used every day by drummers. This course will contain five weeks of instruction with a final concert in week six for you to show off your newly learned drumset skills! Whether you are new to music or if you’re an intermediate drummer yourself, this course will help solidify your musical foundation as a drummer and give you that extra edge over other players.

Rock Band: 11:00 – 11:50am

Beginner level students will learn 1-2 beginner level rock/pop/country songs and perform them in a recital setting. The goal of this rock band ensemble will be to develop teamwork and accountability as essential tools in learning/rehearsing/performing music in a group. Students will also learn all parts of the song to help further their education in music as a whole, and not just how it pertains to their discipline. We will use instrument swapping to help achieve this goal. The Six weeks will break into three educational Modules. In Module one students learn the basic moving parts of a song i.e. it’s verse/bridge/chorus/its strum patterns/root accent notes, as well as the song’s basic information(E major/common time/full time). Students will participate in all aspects of this musical diagnosis regardless of how many aspects of music itself their instrument incorporates. I.E. Drum students will go over chord progressions and guitar students will learn what a full time drum beat is. Module two will be learning the songs’ individual parts as a group, putting them together, and then putting it all in order. Module three will rehearse the whole song as a band repeatedly. This will conclude in a recital style performance. Solo Practice outside of class is integral in a group performance setting and accountability to each other is a good motivator. The joy of learning a piece of music and playing it in a group is a truly amazing experience; especially when the work to get it there has been put in. I think it’s important to give the Students that feeling of accomplishment and joy early on in their musical lives and believe it will propel them forward musically in a unique and profound way.
