Dr. Corey Hamm - Piano

Piano Program Director

PIANO INTENSIVE

RCM Levels 6 - ARCT (or equivalent). Admission by audition. All ages welcome.

July 1 – 14, 2018

Registration is limited to six applicants so make sure to apply early.  The opportunity to perform in a string ensemble makes this program unique among music camps.

As with all CYMC programs this is an immersive experience. Students who stay on campus eat, sleep, talk and play music. Peer to peer interaction where pianists listen to one another and play together is a vital component of this learning experience.

APPLIED THEORY

This class approaches theory from a refreshingly different perspective. Students will be challenged to use their theory knowledge to:

SING!

CREATE chord/rhythm charts from recordings

LEARN to read and perform from chord charts

IMPROVE their internal rhythm through the use of eurythmics (body rhythm)

The result is a clearer understanding of the purpose/application of music theory in our everyday music-making.

There will be at least 2 class-levels, divided by experience. Classes will be determined on the first day of camp, following a short assessment.


CREATIVE WORKSHOP
Put away all scores, notebooks, and sheet music! In these fun workshops, students will create music through improvisation, games, storytelling, and a few other fun techniques. No improvisation experience? We’ll walk you through! Are you an experienced improviser? You will be challenged to expand your toolbox!


PRIVATE LESSONS/MASTERCLASS

Students will have a chance to receive personal instruction directly from Dr. Hamm, in both private lessons and masterclasses. Students should bring at least three pieces to work on, including something ready for performance.


PERFORMANCES
Students will participate in outreach performances at senior care centers around the Comox Valley, in addition to presenting a final recital (featuring solo & chamber music).
