The Dinky Drum Company School of Music, “Summer Arts Programs,” is an extension of the annual music educational offerings. The programs are done in 8 week blocks of time and they include Private and Group lessons. The Private lesson classes are:
Acoustic & Bass Guitars Drums & Percussion Piano & Voice Saxophone, Flute & Clarinet Trumpet & Trombone Students will receive hands-on training with quality music instructors who specialize in one or more of these instruments. The lessons include, but are not limited to, learning how to read music; learning how to play scales and rudiments; instrument proficiency; and musicianship.
The Group lesson classes are available for each listed instrument in our private lesson program. These classes have a three (3) student minimum and a five (5) student maximum.
During the Summer Program we also offer our group rhythm section class, “Playing with the Pro’s.” This class is designed for intermediate and advanced rhythm instrumentalist (Drums, Bass Guitar, Piano, Guitar and Percussion); a Vocalist or Woodwind/Brass Soloist can be added (Advance Ensembles only). The students are grouped together as ensembles consisting of one of each instrument.
The Goal of the DDC Summer Arts Program is to offer music lessons to Children, Youth and Adults who may not have the time or resources to study music year round. Additionally, our aim is to introduce all people, who have never studied music, to the “Joy of Music;” thru private and group music lessons.
