Following up from previous ideas tossed about – we are now forming the structure of our Young Musicians Group.
With so many schools struggling to maintain music programs, we see a need to provide a safe, relaxed, and student led haven for collaboration and learning.
We will be hosting virtual weekly sessions (which is quickly starting to look more like it will be in person as often as possible) culminating in a “virtual modern youth orchestra”, where the language of music is shared and learned in an organic, natural manner together.
~ Kids and teens (and adults are also welcome and encouraged)
~ 45 minute sessions, where we play/practice for 30 minutes, and then open the floor for whatever you want to talk about for the last 15 minutes.
~ All forms of music and whatever instrument you already have, or want to learn.
~ Depending on responses, we’ll address support for levels of knowledge and skill as necessary. This idea is to be inclusive of all, regardless of prior experience with the instrument(s) and/or the language of music.
Our default and/or initial gatherings will be offered over Zoom, but as the interest presents, we can plan periodic in-person gatherings (after the group gets into groove with one another). Presently, we are located in the San Luis Valley, in southern Colorado, and will focus our efforts within this region for the time being.
Commencing in August, 2021.
