    • For this summer, drama week will move to an online format and focus on the fundamentals of acting and movement.  We will concentrate on building characters through online improv and movement games, and work on scenes and monologues that will be performed in a showcase at the end of the week. We will build a space that is inclusive and safe to allow students from all backgrounds to learn and grow no matter if they are acting for the first time or have many shows under their belt. Instruction will be given in a master-class style where we will be able to perform for, watch, and learn from each other.  This week will not only focus on creating and performing characters but also give tips in auditioning.  Though we cannot be together students will be taught tools to help them succeed in auditioning for shows and schools and what the work of an actor is, once they have been cast.  This week is designed for all interested in acting for the theatre both for fun and professionally.

    • CALLING ALL MUSICAL EXPLORERS!!!
      Join me, Professor Khaki, on a daring musical adventure through the totally safe, but extremely exciting land of Compositia! Compositia is a wild, unpredictable jungle of rhythm, pitch, timbre, instrumentation, songwriting, harmony, computer programs, wild beasts! (which look an awful lot like my pets, Simone and Mister), and a kazoo. All you need for this marvelous adventure is an open mind, a computer (with a web cam & microphone), pencils, music staff paper, an instrument (if you play one; it helps in taming wild beasts), and time to write music and/or lyrics! Our expeditions through Compositia will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10am and noon, so that you will be home in time for lunch. In the afternoons and on the off days, you can meet individually with Professor Khaki to work on your own explorations. On the last day of our expedition to Compositia, we will share our discoveries and creations in a virtual Zoom concert.
