Brooklyn Youth Music Project - BYMP
Re: Brooklyn Youth Music ProjectAnother enthusiastic plug for BYMP. Both my children have been / is being a member of either their intermediate or advanced orchestras. The camp is really low-key: a day-camp that meets at a school in Windsor Terrace for 2 weeks. Last summer my younger son just went for 1 week (sleepaway camp beckoned after that) and I was surprised at hoe much he loved it, considering how hard it is to get him to practice during the normal week. The thing about the orchestras is that they are forgiving. Children have to play at a certain level to audition in, but the director, Kelly Howard seems to take the approach "let's strive for excellence but after all, they are kids of varying abilities". Not to say she doesn't push them.
Re: Brooklyn Youth Music ProjectLast summer my son, age 7, attended BYMP camp and had an amazing musical and social experience. Not only did he grow in leaps and bounds with his musical studies, he also had chorus, dance, music theory and history and a whole bunch of fun! I have been a huge fan of this organization ever since and want to spread the word about an upcoming event on Saturday, November 14. If your child studies or is asking to study a musical instrument, come enjoy a relaxed adult night out and have some wine and cheese, while you learn more about BYMP year-round and summer programs. This is a great chance to mix and mingle in the neighborhood, meet some new families, and also get to hear a couple of the ensembles. There will be a silent and live auction, a wine pull, raffles and a lot of fun. For more information, visit the Brooklyn Youth Music Project website http://www.bymp.org.
