Grades 6-8 (‘16-’17 school year) Summer Pops is a band of middle school instrumentalists that get together in the summer to play fun, popular music of various styles. Grab your instrument (all band instruments except drums, but includes bells) and come to the studio to practice, improve and have a blast this summer with other students who love music just as you do! The group will perform at the Dakota County Fair, the Minnesota Zoo and other community events. It’s a great opportunity for students to keep playing over the summer. The instructor Rich Clausen, has taught public school music as well as played professionally most of his adult life. He has taught privately for over 30 years and this is his 28th year of doing Summer Pops! Additional cost of $10 for group T-shirt paid directly to the instructor. Studio located at 15919 Harwell Avenue, Apple Valley * Students can reschedule days, as we go through the summer, if they cannot make their regular day, they can make up missed weeks by coming twice another week.
