Summer programs with South Shore Conservatory

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

In response to requests from parents for summer enrichment programs for
their children, South Shore Conservatory announces its plan to offer both
virtual private lessons and virtual programs this summer.

For children birth to four with caregiver, SSC offers Music Together®
Online, a gentle introduction to music. The new Zoom music-making platform
allows friends and grandparents to participate in the classes as well, from

Flute players at all levels are invited to join the ONLY online flute
symphony! SSC’s Flute Symphony, which runs Monday and Wednesday evenings
from July 6-29, gathers online to play and learn together, culminating in a
virtual ensemble of flute symphony selections on Wednesday, July 29.

SMFCONNECT, a virtual program of Summer Music Festival, offers for winds,
percussion and string students currently in grades 5 – college, an
opportunity to develop their core musicianship in a supportive, fun, and
interactive environment. The program, structured to be flexible, runs from
Monday through Thursday, July 13 through July 30, gives students and
families the opportunity to choose from a wide range of experiences and
time commitments.

For singers, Summer Vocal Institute Online, which runs from July 27 through
August 7, offers a safe way to continue building their vocal skills.
Features include daily movement, vocal technique, ensemble and solo
repertoire, ear-training, dynamic group instruction, individual instruction
in masterclass format, technical support for Zoom and the Acapella app, and
virtual ensemble keepsake recordings. It also provides a social connection
with singing friends, materials for easy, at-home practice between sessions
and plenty of time away from the screen to enjoy summer.

For children interested in drama, SSC’s Curtain Going Up, a one or
two-week program running from August 3 through August 14, introduces
students, ages four to six, to the world of theatre through dramatic play,
movement, music, and art activities. Each week focuses on a different
theme, concluding with a Friday presentation for family and friends.
Let’s Put on a Show, for ages six to 12, runs July 20 through July 31 and
explores drama skills online. Students explore character development,
monologue and dialogue, writing short skits, improvisation and more through
drama games and guided activities. Students prepare and share a
presentation for family and friends on the last day. Both classes are
conducted via Zoom.

South Shore Conservatory (SSC) also announced that, in addition to offering
a 12 percent discount on all private lessons, they are also offering a five
percent multi-student family discount, and a ten percent frontline worker
discount when students lock in their lesson time for the 2020/2021 school
year. Enrollment for the fall is open now. By registering by Saturday,
July 11, students can lock in the new online tuition rates for the entire
school year, even if it is safe to return to traditional in-person format.
