#1 Choice in Springfield Township for Instrument and Voice Lessons

There are many reasons why the Cappella School of Music is the #1 choice in Springfield Township for music lessons on all instruments and voice.  In addition to the finest staff of caring, dedicated, professional teachers in the area, Cappella goes the extra mile as we present six concerts per year for our students and feature an active Ensemble schedule ranging from Vocal Acapella groups to Rock and Roll bands, all offered at the most affordable pricing in the region and open to regularly scheduled private students and young musicians otherwise not attending Cappella.  Music and teaching are our life blood and we look forward to welcoming your family to our own.

 

Here is our School Year schedule of Concerts and the current offerings of ensembles.

Band Schedule

Throughout the year, Cappella offers an ongoing series of Band & Workshop Sessions, where our young musicians meet each week under the tutelage of our staff and hone their skills as they make music together.  At the end of the sessions, the bands perform at one of our concerts. 

 

Learning to play together is a very important part of the process of developing into an accomplished musician.  It is about listening as well as playing, staying together in the groove, and shaping a larger performance from a group of smaller parts.

 

The band  sessions are always increasing in popularity, in part because we offer the most affordable pricing in the area for this kind of ensemble experience.  They are open to all students, whether or not those students take private lessons at Cappella.  For  students who do not take private lessons at Cappella, the participation fee is $115, which covers eight hours of instruction plus the concert.  Private students at Cappella pay a steeply discounted rate.

 

Our next group of ensembles start the week of Monday, October 22nd and culminate with our Saturday, December 22nd Holiday Concert at our home stomping grounds,  Saint Philips Church in Oreland.

 

Here are the details on our next slate of offerings:

 

 

Rock & Roll Band

Pete McRae leads our Rock Band sessions and brings to them a lifetime of experience as a performer in rock and roll.  With over twenty years of experience as a session musician on albums in Los Angeles and a lengthy pedigree of national and international tours under his belt, Pete knows what it takes to put together a rock and roll performance.  The greatest part is the joy he brings to the entire experience.  The rock band will meet

 

Thursdays 5:30-6:30 with Pete McRae starting October 25th


Minimum Band Size is three participants and maximum is six.  All instruments and voices are welcome.

The Rock Band Sessions are open to all students, regardless of their status as enrolled Cappella students.  The cost for the eight hours of sessions is $115.00 to families not currently enrolled as private lesson students.  There is a special discount to currently enrolled Cappella students.  Call for Details!

Vocal Harmony Group

One of the greatest joys of singing is that of blending your voice in unison with other singers.  In the Vocal Harmony Group, players and singers will come together to blend harmonies and instrumentation on covers of current Pop hits, classics and maybe even their own compositions.  This is a great opportunity for musicians on all instruments, but particularly for singers, to take a giant step in developing their own musicianship and their ability to work with others in a band setting.  It is also a great chance for students interested in musical theater to develop the vocal skills necessary to work the musical stage!
