Teen Digital Music Social Group: ages 13-17
This program meets VIRTUALLY for our Spring semester beginning January 2022 and running through June. The goal of this program is for the participants to develop and build friendships while having fun doing what they love learning, sharing, and talking about digital music! Participants will create their own music and collaborate on group projects using digital music applications such as Sound Slice, Incredibox and Soundtrap/Garageband. Music based experiences will include but not be limited to songwriting, improvisation and song sharing. This group will be facilitated by Tony Varga, who holds a doctorate in music education and is also a board certified music therapist. Group meets on zoom 2x a month on Thursdays from 6:15pm -7:00pm. All abilities are welcome!
