MYA Summer Rock Experience
An intensive weekend of fun, rocking out, and musical creation.
"Rock and Roll", "Rhythm and Blues", "Hip-hop"...whatever you call it, we're going to play it, and ALL instrumentalists (let me repeat that, ALL instruments!) and singers are encouraged to join the band.
Yeah, there will be microphones, riffs, blue notes, rebellion, and jammin', but the focus is on making music as an ensemble…music with a strong back beat and even stronger attitude.
This workshop is held at the MYA Center in Fort Sheridan.
Rock Experience Schedule
7:00 to 9:00 pm, Thursdays, June 21 through July 19, 2012

He has been actively involved with young people and music since he received certification from the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ. Mark works with well over a hundred children each week, between instrument lessons and the Music Together classes he leads all over Lake County. He performs, with his guitar and his songs, at family events for area park districts. Mark is a composer of stage musicals at the nationally famous Theatre Building Chicago Writers Workshop and also can also be caught gigging around the Chicago area playing jazz and rock.
