Registration open for Summer Music Institute
Musicians, teachers and composers are invited to hone their skills when Fitchburg State University’s Center for Professional Studies holds the Teaching and Learning Music Institute July 9 through 13.
This intensive, one-week residential graduate institute - now in its third year – centers on skill development through quality music literature study, discussion, and presentation. Singing, performing, composing, analyzing, conducting, and relating music to history and other arts are explored.
Classes, workshops, projects and seminars focus on choral, chamber, instrumental, jazz, and band works. Technology, special workshops on singing, Alexander technique, and percussion complete the week-long experience. Three graduate credits are awarded for successful completion of the institute requirements.
“I highly recommend this program to all students and teachers of music,” said Steven Bergman, from the Littleton Public Schools, a past attendee.
“This was a rare course for teachers that was truly intellectually stimulating,” added Alix Pollack, Belmont Public Schools, another past attendee. “Because the material contributed to my knowledge and excitement as a musician, it will contribute to my teaching.”
Seating is limited and registrations are due by June 22. Earn three graduate credits (or 67.5 PDPs) in one week. The cost is $1,450, includes tuition, fees, room and board. A commuter discount is also available. Visit www.fitchburgstate.edu/music to learn more and to register.
