CAP Creative Strings motivates students by giving them the opportunity to discover, for example, the functional use of harmony and idiomatic creative string techniques (rhythmic, harmonic, etc.). With these and other skills, we create “eureka moments” that inspire students to enjoy and develop their understanding of music beyond just the written page. For sure, it’s a fun and unique adventure full of new discoveries!
The Community Arts Program (CAP) Jazz PREP Band and ALL-STAR Jazz Ensemble are designed to set the standard for a professionally-minded group of young jazz musicians. Those involved not only desire greater understanding of jazz musicianship, they also commit to the professional skills of on-time attendance to all activities (i.e., rehearsals, performances, workshops) and planning other outside extra-curricular activities around this.
