Pasadena, CA LA Music Academy (http://www.lamusicacademy.edu/) announced details for its upcoming annual Summer Program, kicking off June 22nd. The school's popular summer experience is open to interested drummers, guitarists, bassists and singers ages 10 and up who have received at least one year of private instruction. Besides meeting new friends and expanding their professional networks, students can expect to learn from and play with some of Southern California's best professional musicians; write and record original music; and will have full access to music clinics and ensemble workshops. Session One, from June 22-26, focuses on Rock, Funk and Blues. Session Two, from June 29-July 3, focuses on Jazz, Fusion and Latin. Each session concludes with a student concert.

“The summer program gives students a great opportunity to see and be involved in a microcosm of what an entire school year would be like," says LA Music Academy President Tom Aylesbury. He adds, “Our year-round program is outstanding because it challenges and prepares students with an overview of the skills necessary to perform with professional musicians while helping them to see what it takes to develop a successful career in the music business." Aylesbury added that this is as close as a student can be to the real thing when it comes to a music career.

The Summer Program provides a snapshot of daily life at LA Music Academy, including band workshops with fellow students; ensemble workshops with professional musicians and instructors; playing technique courses; a private half hour lesson with one of the faculty members; clinics and concerts with faculty and special guests; and a visit to a recording studio to record an original tune. Either session is $850 or students can enroll in both for $1450.
