Advanced music intensives offered this summer

The Patel Conservatory is offering advanced music intensives this summer that are sure to give vocal and instrumental students an edge.

“This year, we’ve expanded the scope and depth of our music offerings to include more intensive training for advanced music students,” said Dr. Daniel Powell, the Conservatory’s Music Department Chair.

New intensives added this year include our jazz and drumline intensives, and our vocal and chamber intensives have broadened in curriculum. All intensives include master classes with seasoned professionals in their respective genre.

“Students will benefit from working with a variety of experienced instructors in both large and small ensembles, and in doing so, will gain invaluable experience and new learning opportunities,” said Powell.

For students in school ensembles, these summer opportunities can sharpen their techniques and performance skills so they’ll be ready for the new school year with renewed vigor.

The vocal and chamber intensives will also include an Honors Recital, which will showcase exceptional students who demonstrate the necessary skills and passion.

Come train with the best in our advanced music intensives:
