Are you seeing a theme with the website, studio events and YouTube Pages? Yes we're focusing on music from the 50's and 60's. Please consider checking out the one week camp July 11th-15th. We will learn songs from Rock, Roll and Remember arranged by Roger Emerson. Those who attend will learn to sing harmonies, decade dances and costuming options. This will be a fun camp worth checking out. Here's the flier and FB Link. Thanks for your support. Blessings. https://www.facebook.
While preparing for the upcoming 50's and 60's Summer Project, had a chance to write out an arrangement of Twist and Shout performed by the Beatles and Jailhouse Rock.

You will have to show and explain the ledger line note A in the Treble Clef and perhaps have the student listen to the song performed by Elvis Presley. Help
This summer I'm going to try to work for the Parks and Rec in Wichita, KS. I've been blessed many years ago to do this and now getting another chance. I'm super excited to serve our community with theater. The camps are Snow White Lite and Pirate Comedy Skits. Check out page 31 for the description of the two camps that are about 3 plus hour long. Totally worth checking out. If you're in the Wichita area, please consider these short camps. What are you doing different this sum
The past few weeks I had a chance to start working on some of the 50's and 60's Rock and Roll songs for a Summer Project. I'm really energized about this camp, which will provide opportunities for students to play songs that will be fun for everyone to play and listen too. Here are some of the songs so far. All of these songs are from Faber's Rock 'n Roll series. Sufrin' Safari is from Level 1 by The Beach Boys, created with a simple melody that is a 5 finger melody concept.
