You’re just weeks away from the best performances of your life.

A combination of class work, private study and practice time, our intensive programs are designed for the determined student who wants a short but intense period of quality instruction.

The programs are unique for a music institution, and offer an overview of styles and concepts relevant to today’s music, and require intermediate level skills and rudimentary reading ability.

 

*INSTRUMENTAL INTENSIVES (Drums, Bass, Guitar and Keyboard)*

Each intensive program includes the following:

  • a weekly reading class
  • a weekly instrumental technique class
  • six style-specific classes in every week including Jazz, Funk, Rock/R&B, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and Caribbean
  • a weekly rhythm section with professional musicians.
  • a weekly private lesson
  • a daily individual practice time

 

*VOCAL INTENSIVES*

Each intensive program includes the following:

  • Two weekly vocal technique classes
  • six style-specific classes in every week, including Traditional Rock, Contemporary Rock, Jazz/Standards 1 & 2, Traditional R&B, Contemporary R&B.
  • a weekly rhythm section with professional musicians.
  • a weekly private lesson
  • a daily individual practice time

 

Class sizes are limited to 5 students per two-hour classes, which is quite personal for a music institution. The time for larger or smaller classes is pro-rated according to enrollment. Drummers need only bring sticks, and bass and guitarists only their instruments. It is recommended that all students bring a personal metronome, headphones, and a recording device.

Intensive programs range from one to four weeks. A deposit is required to hold your space at our music institution, and the tuition balance is due on the first day of class.
