Music Performance Ensemble

Instructors: Akina Adderley, Julia Ward, Kyle Clayton
DescriptionThis workshop is designed for students interested in performing music in a band setting. Our teachers will organize, develop, and facilitate students who have some ability in instrumental and/or vocal performance into several groups according to musical needs and skill level. Students will rehearse weekly and perform in ensemble groups at the Fall Music & Fashion Show (Dec. 9). All students are encouraged to join! Note: This workshop is for students already possessing some experience singing or playing their instrument and is not appropriate for a beginning musician. New members are required to audition. Auditions will be held on Monday, August 14th, between 2:00 and 4:00pm. Please contact Akina Adderley (akina@griffinschool.org) to schedule your time. For audition material, any musical style is fine. Vocalists can sing a capella, accompany themselves, or use a karaoke track. Please be prepared to play through an entire song. If you are unable to make our scheduled audition block, please submit a video audition to Akina by uploading it to WeTransfer or Dropbox and emailing it from there. For interested students who are not quite at this level, we will be offering private lessons after school with music teachers who can support individuals in developing basic skills to prepare for this class.
