We are happy to announce etc. Music School’s Summer Term ’15 Offerings!
Registration is now open; e-mail etcmusicschool@gmail.com to register!

Class offerings, Summer Term 2015:


1. TinyShows Summer Camp:
Open to students entering K – 3rd grade in Fall ’15

TinyShows Summer Camp will offer more of the fun music, theatre, dance, and art activities that make our school-year program such a hit with our ‘Tinies’! In summer, we’ll be able to expand our theatrical horizons by also doing outdoor theatre games (weather permitting) and using our imaginations to create a short musical of our own creation. Students will work on drawing scenes, creating dance moves, learning songs, decorating costumes – and having a ton of fun!

Meeting times: Monday-Friday, 10 A.M. – 1 P.M. from June 15 – July 10th (excluding July 3rd and 4th) at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St. in Evanston

TinyShows Summer show date: July 10th
Price: $400.00 for the term



2. KidShows Summer Camp:
Open to students entering 4th – 7th grade in Fall ’15

Our KidShows Summer Camp builds off of the workshops and activities that make up our popular school-year program, in which the students themselves get to create and craft their own one-act musical! The longer class periods during summer allows us to take this model even further, with workshops on costume design, set painting, lyric and music writing, choreography and more. The KidShows class will also get to interact with our older Mentor students, and we’ll take a class field trip to see some live theater!

Meeting times: Monday-Friday, 10 A.M. – 3 P.M. from June 15 – July 12th (excluding July 3rd and 4th) at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St. in Evanston

KidShows Summer show dates: July 10th-12th
Price: $725.00 for the term

*for later-working parents, we will also offer a Summer Extended Day with supervised art/theatre/music activities from 3-5 P.M.!*

Extended care will be available at the rate of $50.00 per week.



3. Presents Summer Program:
Open to students entering 8th – 12th grade in Fall ’15

As our students and families in the Presents program have learned, amazing things can happen when teens themselves are given ownership over the creation and stewardship of original works of musical theatre.

In our Presents Summer Program, specially-timed to NOT interfere with local high school summer school classes, we’ll take the Presents program farther than ever before, dabbling in different staging, writing and composing techniques and culminating in a fully-original two-act piece of musical theatre. Classes will be given in composition, lyric and book-writing, staging, choreography and dramaturgy, and we will take class field trips to be inspired by local theater companies!

Meeting times: Monday-Friday, 2 P.M. – 6 P.M. from June 15 – July 18th (excluding July 3rd and 4th) at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St. in Evanston

Presents Summer show: July 16-18th
Price: $725.00 for the term
