NJWA Music Studio Registers for Winter Session

NJWA Music Studio Registers for Winter Session

On Tuesday, January 2, 2018, the New Jersey Workshop for the Arts Music Studio will begin its winter session of instrumental and vocal instruction. Lessons are available for pre-school children through adults in a 30, 45 or 60 minute format.

The staff of the NJWA consists of highly skilled music educators and professional artists, with degrees from prestigious universities and music programs. They accurately evaluate each student’s ability and design the lessons to fit the student’s needs.

In addition to instruction on strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, guitar and piano, the Music Studio offers opportunities to play in bands, orchestras and ensembles. Among these are the Wednesday Morning Strings, the Rock Performance Workshop, the Saturday Orchestras, the Alphorn Society Ensemble, the NJWA Summer Symphony and Jazz Bands. The NJWA is also home to the Majestic Winds

The Music Studio also offers the Music Connection, a program for special needs students, which includes Music Therapy. The studio has added the Alexander Technique, an educational body-mind method that addresses how one uses one’s body in movement while performing in daily life and activities.

A recent program to the Music Studio is Music FunTime, for pre-school children. In Music FunTime students will use musical crafts, worksheets, games and instruments to read music notation and play musical instruments, while fostering their ability to grasp math and science.

The Westfield Fencing Club, for both children and adults, and the newly launched satellite club in Chatham, called the Cougars 6-7-8 Fencing Team, which is open to students in grades 6, 7 and 8 from all communities, are also programs of the NJWA.

This coming July, the 2018 Summer Arts Workshop will include music, visual arts, dance and drama for those in pre-school to grade 12.
