Growing the Next Generation of Music Educators
We are pleased to introduce Reilley Barrish, our new college intern for summer 2024. Reilley is a sophomore at Penn State, majoring in music education. She graduated from South Fayette High School in 2023. Reilley will be working each week as part of our summer camp team teaching piano classes and art classes.

This summer marks our 10th year hiring college students as summer interns. We are committed to  providing training and practical experience as they work toward a career in music education, music therapy, or music performance.

Music and Art in Summer Camps
Kathy's Music started incorporating a unique art curricula into our summer camps in 2020. Our Artist in Resident and Curricula developer is Hannah Goforth, owner of Go Explore Create. In each camp, our educators work to nurture self-expression and build confidence through music and art. With the addition of maker space projects and collaborative art, summer campers are exposed to a large variety of mediums, tools, and new skills. You will see our collaborative art projects hanging in the studio from past summer.

Summer Camps provide an opportunity for children and students to explore arts as a whole with music, movement, and art. They are so many connection points because Music is a form of Art. Rob J Kennedy said it so well in his Interlude Article, Music as Art, in this quote:  "Music as art is a lovely circular process. One takes from and feeds the other. Someone once said that music is the art of life, so in these sister mediums, we can see that art is the music of life."

Your children are learning many of the same life skills in our art classes that they learn in Kindermusik and Group Lessons: collaboration, perspective taking, inhibitory control, fine motor development, language development, empathy, and more. Those benefits are all valuable, but they are the bi-products of the creative learning experience.

We combine music and art because of how well they complement each other as we seek to stir your student's artistic soul.
