Eartha Lamkin says the B Sharp Summer Enrichment Academy got started after church watching children play after church. “After church services on Sunday, we would have kids either trying to bang on the piano or play the drums.”
The summer camp is for kids between the ages of six and 18 years of age. The focus will be on sight singing, voice, chorus, ear training, theory, brass, piano, percussion, and more. The classrooms are filled with certified music teachers who have gone through background checks so your child will be in a safe environment.
“The beauty of the summer camp is that we have local musicians who also volunteer their time to and also have their kids in the program,” added Lamkin. The classes begin July 7, 2014 and run through August 9, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday with free breakfast and lunch.
“This is a way to give those children who interested in music a chance to learn in a professional but fun environment. At the same time giving them something constructive to do,” said Monik Rolling, assistant to the director.
The “B Sharp” Summer Music Enrichment Academy will be held at Timothy Baptist Church located at 1214 Saratoga Street in Baltimore. For more information, please call Eartha Lamkin at 410-728-1447 or 410-484-6519.
