Registration is now open for Montana State University’s School of Music piano summer camp for students entering grades 6 to 12. The camp, “Popular Music for Piano,” runs Aug. 11 to 15, and students may register for either the morning or afternoon session.
Piano students will learn current pop and rock hits, write and record their own song, and study popular music theory and techniques under the direction of Billie Howard, camp director.
Enrollment is limited to the first 10 students to register per session. The morning session runs from 9 a.m.-noon. The afternoon session is from 1-4 p.m. Early registration, before July 28, costs $250. Those who register after July 28 will pay $275.
Howard has a master’s degree in piano performance and pedagogy from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s in piano and violin performance from MSU. Howard performs across Chicago in both classical and rock styles, regularly appearing with the Chicago Composer’s Orchestra, Aperiodic, and the 20-piece all-female Girl Group Chicago.
