EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH PROGRAM

February 16-20, 2015 – Sacramento, CA
Description

Vox Musica’s Educational Outreach Program serves as a means of discovery for students new to music (or to formal music instruction in general) and as a valuable source of expert training, historical education, and inspiration for young students, singers and or musicians. It integrates Vox Musica community arts resources—professional artists (musicians, composers, conductors, and educators)—into a comprehensive, needs-based program that underscores the critical role that the arts play in shaping a student’s overall well-being and academic achievement. Vox Musica ensemble members and/or special guest artists/composers will work with participating schools to provide students with a variety of educational activities (e.g. coaching, mentoring, master classes, workshops, and compositional competitions, lecture-concerts, choral festivals, and skills-targeted lessons). Topics may include but will not be limited to, vocal technique, music theory, sight singing, solfege, music terminology, music history and ensemble-building exercises. Vox Musica program staff will conduct evaluations of all completed activities including and assessment of the student learning outcomes.
