At Corner Music, your child’s musical growth means everything to us! This summer give them the chance to Rock and Learn at our one-of-a-kind School of Rock camps featuring a different musical theme each week! Our day camps offer young musicians and singers a unique chance to ROCK OUT in a fun, supportive, and educational environment. We gather in our dedicated rehearsal space and play music as a band; and at the end of the week, we perform for you! To make the week even more special, we use professional sound and light equipment; get visits from professional musicians to share constructive criticism; and we record ourselves with professional digital technology! All students will get a CD of themselves playing in the group!

During the 1600s, there were two very popular musical instruments that were taking Europe by storm. Back then, if you wanted to be a “rock star”, you either played the clavichord or the harpsichord.

People who played the clavichord had excellent control over the tones and notes they could get out of it, but it just couldn’t play very loudly. If you wanted to play to a crowded house, you’d have a lot of trouble being heard. People who played the harpsichord found themselves facing the exact opposite problem. They could play loud, but the sound was a little sloppy and they couldn’t control the sound of the notes they played very well. An Italian musician named Bartolomeo Cristofori decided that he would build a new kind of musical instrument that would give musicians the best of both worlds – clear and controlled tone along with the ability to play loudly enough for anyone to hear. In 16983, he accomplished this goal and that is when the modern piano was born. Ever since then, the piano has become more and more popular throughout the world and is now the most widely played instrument on Earth. Continue reading
