PVYO Summer Music Institute 2020
PVYO is proud to offer on-line summer classes this year to supplement the ensemble instruction students are receiving at PVYO, school, or other youth orchestras and bands.
PVYO Music Director, Mr. William Hollin, is a veteran music teacher with 42 years in the classroom and on the podium. Twenty-three of those years, he has been at the helm of our organization as Music Director and Philharmonia Conductor.
For Music Theory, we will be using Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory Books 1, 2 and 3, correlating with each level of theory. Students will need to acquire their own copy of the book through their preferred music dealer or Amazon. There is no text for Music History.
Students may enroll in multiple sessions. Each Session is $100.00.
