Just two weeks until Seattle Public Schools‘ spring-break week – and if you have a West Seattle-area 4th through 8th grader interested in music, this might be the perfect way for her/him to spend that week:
Denny Sealth Performing Arts is once again sponsoring a Spring Break music camp this year, for 4th through 8th graders. Here’s the invitation from the Denny and Sealth music director Marcus Pimpleton:
The camp is a fun and laid-back way for students to spend the break exploring music with other youth from the West Seattle area. The camp will operate April 14th-18th from 9 am – 2 pm and be held in the music rooms at Chief Sealth International High School, 2600 SW Thistle.
Students spend two hours of each day specializing on their primary instrument in an ensemble (band, orchestra or choir) plus 45 minutes of sectionals with their primary instrument. They have another 45 minutes each day to explore a secondary interest (steel drums, guitar, drumline, color guard, choir or jazz band). The rest of the time consists of games and lunch. A suggested donation of $120 is requested, but families are welcome to give as much or as little as they can afford. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The registration form is available here.
