Summer at the Music Center - 2012

The Music Center's summer classes run from June 11 through August 1, 2012. Some August individual lessons may be available, as they are scheduled at the student's and instructor's mutually available times. Flexibility in scheduling allows families and students to have lessons fit in around camps and trips. We offer vocal and instrumental instruction in a variety of styles, and some exciting group classes to challenge all ages of musicians.

Financial Aid requests for summer lessons and classes must be submitted to the UVMC by May 25 for consideration.

Learning how to improvise can help classically trained musicians understand how music is composed, and even enable them to interpret classical pieces better!
