  • 2017 Summer Song Camps!

    Local Topanga boutique music group, Forte Poesy Music, will be hosting two SONG CAMP sessions this summer in Topanga Canyon. Forte Poesy instructors have been employing original curriculum which teaches musicianship through songwriting and self-expression since 2009.

    “We have carefully constructed what we deem the “dream week” for campers to experience music making as a simple and rewarding adventure, available to anyone with curiosity and passion. Our camp is great for beginners just dipping their toes in the water of songwriting and playing, as well as for those who already have some experience in creating tunes, “ says Forte Poesy founder, Shevy Smith.

    Song Camp (in two camp sessions: July 17-21 and July 31-Aug 4 / 9:30am-3pm) will take advantage of inherent inspiration found in local nature with light hikes, group songwriting, individual composing, beginning recording, crafting personal songwriting journals, and mock-radio interviews. Camp is suitable for both girls and boys, ages 6-18, as there will be much individual instruction available.

    “Music should be, above all things, a rewarding and fun experience. We kind of fancy ourselves the alternative to strict, scary piano teachers... we love to see students have creative breakthroughs and strive to foster an atmosphere of endless possibility. We have worked hard to structure a camp that WE would have enjoyed as kids. My staff and I are super excited to hear the songs that will come out of these summer sessions!”
