Students from the Lincoln College contemporary jazz program are again teaming up with the Lincoln Park District to offer individual music lessons.
Individual instruction in tenor saxophone, trombone, beginning piano, guitar, drums, and electric bass will be offered to students age 6 to 13 beginning September 10 and running through November 5. Sessions last 30 minutes and are available between 4:30-7:30 p.m. each Tuesday evening.
Student instructors from Lincoln College are under the supervision of contemporary jazz lead faculty member, Denise La Grassa. The students will customize lessons for everyone from first-time beginners learning to read music to the more intermediate player interested in beginning improvisation skills.
Beginning September 13 and running through November 8, contemporary jazz students will also be offering lessons on the music production software, Logic Pro, to students age 12 to 18. Students will engage with the Logic Pro music production software, learning how to build mini compositions recording, editing, and arranging music. These sessions will also be 30 minutes and are available between 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Fridays.
For advanced students, compositions developed in the fall eight-week session will be featured as pre-show music at the Lincoln College fall-winter showcase.
All lessons are $120 for the 8-week sessions. Interested persons should register by calling the Park District at (217) 732-8770 by September 3.
