Summer STEAM - Kurt Stein’s School of Music

Kurt Stein’s School of Music, from the Community Music & Arts Collaborative, will be presenting an interactive seminar on the science and art of music and sound. There will be a live band performance, a taste of history and music theory, as well as some call and response games built around the foundations every musician and listener should know. It is going to be a lot of fun, and an incredible interactive learning experience!
