Discover the thrills, skills, and camaraderie of historical music on period and modern instruments

The Early Music Youth Academy, devoted to the joys of Renaissance consort music, meets for autumn and winter/spring semesters, with new performance projects each term. We also present short-term introductory or intermediate music workshops for instrumental music students once or twice each year.

Weekly autumn program [this class is FULL]: In autumn 2018, EMYA explores a particularly tuneful and fun repertoire in a collaborative project. We team up with Seattle Early Dance to present a program of ornate Italian Renaissance choreographies, brought to life by dancers in full costume. For our instrumental-only set, we explore the musical output of Italy's Jewish composers and dance teachers in the same era. The Renaissance has never been so bright and satisfying! 


*Regular Saturday Rehearsals: Continuo Group attend 3pm-4:15 (end time sometimes adjusted); Polyphony Group attend 4-6pm. Location is director's teaching studio in Olympic Hills/Lake City unless otherwise specified; location given upon enrollment.
