South Windsor School of Music is looking for individuals/groups to facilitate 1 hr workshops for our NEW online social group program for kids, Thru the Roof! Summer Music Club, hosted on Zoom.

We are accepting proposals for 1 hr drop-in sessions for children aged 6-16 that respond to our school’s mission statement and are in line with the project’s description (below). Proposed workshops should be drop-in format, not requiring additional materials for the participants from their homes, should focus on interactivity and socialization, get our students learning, moving, and thinking about music and art, and engaging in a creative process together with the Instructor.

Thru The Roof! Summer Music Club Project Description

July & August 2020
Mondays – Thursdays
1 hr / day

40+ hrs / month of LIVE unique & interactive virtual group programs for children, led by a rotation of our qualified Music Instructors and international Guest Artists.

Music Mondays: Focused on showcasing, performing, watching & making music together. We’ll move beyond the Zoomiverse onto other online and social media platforms. Featuring student performances, Instructor & Guest Artist performances with Q&A, musical challenges that get the whole family involved, karaoke fun, music-themed trivia & family talent shows.

Activities will be related to moving and being active, world music, music & art history, space and place, with a focus on interactivity, culture and community connections.

Workshop Wednesdays: Specialized workshops covering a wide range of skill sets in the performing arts through Zoom. We’re providing introductory workshops on music and marketing, DJing, instrument masterclasses, string changing, instrument tuning, creating a home studio, etc.

Crafty Thursdays: Open Craft. A laidback hangout space for thinking outside the box, chatting and making things. Watch as the Instructor creates, show the group what you’re working on & work together on your separate crafty projects through Zoom. Students will be encouraged to use found materials from home. There will be some singing and at least one gift exchange!
