The Leo Kucinski Academy of Music (LKAM) at Morningside College will hold an Early String Program summer camp Monday, June 13 through Friday, June 16, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the Morningside College campus.
Leading the camp will be Jungho Kim, assistant conductor of the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra and violin instructor and director of the Early String Program, and Amy Joseph, member of the Euclid Quartet and instructor for the cellists.
Students in their first years of study or first year players are invited to attend. Cost of the camp is $30. Registrations are available by calling the LKAM office at (712) 274-5357 or by e-mailing Jill Wilson.
The Early String Program combines the Suzuki method and traditional teaching methods to assist beginning players to begin their studies with solid technique and good practice skills.
The LKAM opened in the fall of 2004 and focuses on private instruction, monthly workshops, and performance classes for student musicians from beginner to high school. Through a partnership between the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra and Morningside College, the academy directs the Early String Program and the three ensembles of the Youth Orchestras program.
