« All Events

February 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Saturday, February 29th, at the Studio from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.  In our continuing study of women in music, our students will explore in this workshop some ideas of how to start writing their own compositions by writing their own variation using the melody of Happy Birthday written by Patricia and Mildred Hill!  Professor Aversa is a young, vibrant, exceptional teacher of composition at Boston Conservatory at Berklee.  Everyone will leave this session beginning their own composition that will then be featured in our last recital of the year in June 2020.  Both your teacher, Penny Lazarus and Dr. Aversa will also create a variation, because what is fun is fun for all!  Because this workshop is taking place on Leap Year Day, February 29th, 2020, we will end the workshop with a Birthday Cake for all those born on Leap Year but who only get a real birthday every 4 years!
