Here are the 2014 Spring semester Performing Arts Academy course offerings:
Tri-C Rock Band – Ages: Teen to Adult
Have you ever dreamed of being in a rock band? Well this is your opportunity! Develop your musical and performance talents through interaction with peers while discovering the creativity of performing in a band. Our instructors are award-winning professional musicians who lead popular rock and blues bands. They provide instruction in all components involved in being a member of a rock band including the ins and outs of the music business. Band members will perform a concert at the end of the semester.
All participants will have the opportunity to learn how to record slammin’ tracks in a world-class studio, tips on how to market their product, and instruction on how to develop their skills in creating music.

The Orchestra Program (T.O.P.) – Ages: 8-18
T.O.P. includes multifaceted classes presented in a dynamic, vibrant, intense and fun way that will incorporate instruction in all of the elements necessary to deeply learn how to play in a string orchestra. The program consists of coordinated classes in Orchestra Rehearsal and Theory and Group Instrumental Lessons. After the first day of evaluation, students will be placed in an appropriate level to their experience.
In the Orchestra Rehearsal class, students will learn to be responsible for their individual parts and will learn to work collaboratively with their fellow students and the conductor. In the Theory and Group Instrumental Lessons, students are introduced to the basic performance techniques for their instruments. These techniques include correct instrument and bow position, note reading, development of aural skills, rhythm and pitch. Qualifying students in T.O.P. will also be given a discount for private instrumental lessons, and every effort will be made to schedule those lessons at the most convenient times for each individual student.
* Tuition discount made possible through the generous support of the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
