|Summer Music Workshops and Concerts at Biblioteca Los Mangos|
Cecile Scriban - PVNN
July 07, 2010
From July 12 to August 6, 2010 Biblioteca Los Mangos will offer music workshops to all those willing to develop a closer understanding of music – for children (minimum age 6), teens and adults!
These will be held Monday to Friday from 2 to 7 pm, with three weekly group sessions (for a total of 12) and two individual weekly sessions (for a total of eight). Violin, cello, piano, drums, percussion, canto and acoustic bass will be taught as specialty subjects, and harmony, music theory, choir and music appreciation as common subjects.
Concerts will also be performed by the teachers and there will be master classes, Mexican music concerts and music appreciation classes aimed at adults.
Materials: Ideally the students should bring their own instruments, otherwise they are encouraged to try the teachers' instruments as an incentive to acquire a taste for playing them. Students should bring a ruled paper book, a notebook, pen and pencil and a musical instrument, except for the piano and drums. Students without an instrument should point this out in their registration forms. Musical teaching material is provided for the course.
Teaching Staff: Alejandro Villarreal - piano, music appreciation, music theory and history of music; Porrua Lenia Arocha - violin for children; José María García Navarro - violin for young adults; Nancy Uzi Garcia - cello; Daniel Lopez - drums and percussion; Fabiola Aguirre - canto, bell canto, opera, vocalization, choral ensembles; and Carlos Ramos - bass.
