BEGINNER’S MUSIC THEORY CAMP
(Youth Ages 10-17)

July 20 – 24
Monday-Friday, 9:30 – 11:30 am
Instructor: Eric Regal, MYT
Cost: $60
Registration Deadline: July 13, ongoing if
space allows

Develop basic music reading skills and learn
how to sight-sing!  Students will learn how to
read key signatures, basic rhythms, and
simple notation.  By the end of the week,
they will understand chord structure and
basic harmonies, and be able to sing a song
just by looking at a piece of music!  Students
who participate in this class are highly
encouraged to enroll in the
Songwriting/Composition camp offered by
MYT.


INTRO TO IMPROVISATION
(Youth 11-17 yrs)

July 27
Monday, 2:00 -5:00 pm
Instructor: Brittany Curran
Cost: $15.00
Registration Deadline: July 20

Learn how to think on your feet and create a
story on the spot just like the actors of
Second City or Whose Line is it Anyway!  
Improvisation is the art of creating without
previous preparation—that means it is totally
unscripted and totally unique every time.  
Students will be introduced to the basic rules
of successful improv and learn several
entertaining improv games.


SONGWRITING/COMPOSITION
(Youth 10 – 17 yrs.)

August 3 – 7
Monday – Friday, 9:30 – 11:30 am
Instructor: Eric Regal, MYT
Cost: $60
Registration Deadline: July 27, ongoing if
space allows

Create your own song!  Students will learn
basic chord structure and how to create a
melody.  They will also learn the basics of
songwriting and use their creativity in order
to tell a story through music.  At the final
class meeting, students will present their
own original compositions to friends and
family members.  This camp is a
continuation of MYT’s Beginner’s Music
Theory, but new students are welcome to
enroll without having taken the Music Theory
camp.
