Welcome to Hyde Park Allegro Music Camp 2017!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting our Website! We are delighted to be entering our eighth summer of Hyde Park Allegro Music Camp. Our focus is to teach children who are enthusiastic about exploring and expanding their musical interests and endeavors. We will focus again on instrument mini lesson workshops where students will receive more in-depth instruction on two chosen instruments. We will continue our tradition of presenting one-hour hands-on introductory instrument sessions. This summer we will re-introduce the French horn, introduce the trombone and its historial precursors for the first time and add the recorder to mini lessons options. Kids will move with the traditional Indian folk dancing class taught by our wonderful senior camp counselor and instructor, Gauri Goswami, and learn Morris Folk Dancing taught by our multi-talented resident instructor, Lorraine Brochu. More classes/activities include music theory/sight reading, building a hose trumpet, and taking an ice cream walk. Students will also enjoy musical games which will reinforce music theory, learning about different composers and musical periods and styles. We will conclude camp with a mini-concert on Friday August 18 when students will perform for fellow students, families and friends.

Camp duration will be the recommended two-weeks format to maintain continuity of lessons. However, a one-week option is available for students who cannot attend both weeks. Camp hours will be from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm with drop-off beginning at 9:00am. This year HPAMC will return to Church of St. Paul and the Redeemer in east Hyde Park.

All sessions will be taught by our fabulous Chicago area musicians and teachers who are dedicated and experienced professionals. Please don’t hesitate to e-mail [dlfpiano@me.com] or call me [773 315 8268]if you have any questions.

Many thanks and hope to see you this summer!
