Music Theory Class starting this Fall

This fall, the Sherwood VPA is offering an after-school Music Theory and Improv class specifically geared towards band students. The instructor will be Dr. Michael Kissinger, a conductor and jazz clarinet player with a doctoral degree from the Eastman School of Music (one of the top music schools in the country). He will be teaching both music theory and jazz improvisation.
So why a class in music theory? Would you like to:
● understand the “whys” of how music works?
● analyze the chords in a song?
● learn how to write music?
● prepare for exams such as AP Music Theory or college entrance exams for music majors?
● become a better instrumentalist by understanding music from the inside out?
Classes start October 17th and meet once a week on Thursdays from 5:15 to 6:10 at the Marjorie Stewart Senior Center in Sherwood (across from Hopkins Elementary School). Tuition for the class is $365 for October-May. Need-based financial aid is available. Go to https://vpafoundation.org/choirs/ for more info (scroll down to “Music Theory classes”). Click here to register.
