Singers belting high notes and low ones, a musician strumming from a guitar, another tooting a trumpet and the plinking of piano keys are some of the noises that can be heard coming from room 3400 in the Music Building Friday mornings.
A weekly three-hour Music Performance Workshop class taught by Instructor of Music Garineh Avakian fills the Art Hill, beginning at 9 a.m.
Students enrolled in this class are currently in the Applied Music Program.
Singers, songwriters and musicians are given the opportunity to take the stage and perform in front of their peers. During these meetings, students rehearse pieces for potential audition opportunities and upcoming recitals.
Avakian gives verbal and written feedback to those that perform and even sings with them to demonstrate the proper delivery.
There are two upcoming AMP recitals—Nov. 1 and 15—held on the Performing Arts Building Mainstage, which are open to the public.
