Music, Movement & Vitality
Venice Community Orchestra
Something healthy is going on here!  The winning combination of music and movement promotes a sense of well-being as you learn about music.  Who will attend the class?  Anyone interested in improving balance, coordination and concentration with moderate aerobic exercise, and having fun in a non-competitive class.  What do they learn in class?  We move to music improvised at the piano by the instructor, stepping rhythms, clapping and conducting.

If you’d like to play a string instrument (violin, viola, cello or base) with a group of people of all ages in a very friendly environment, consider joining this joint program offered at the SCF Venice Campus as part of SCF Corporate and Community Development Program.

The classes are open to anyone who can read music and enjoys playing classical symphonic and traditional repertoire. It is a multi-generational program. The classes are tailored to players who learned how to play during their early school days then stopped, and later in life decided to get back into music as well as advancing beginners, skilled amateurs and retired professional musicians wanting to remain musically active. You are not required to audition to be part of this program.

  • Snowbirds are welcome to join any time before mid-session at a prorated fee.
  • Participants will need to bring their own music instrument and stand.
  • Music will be handed out during the first meeting

Piano Improvisation:
Spontaneous Musical Expression
Imagine a class where there are no mistakes! Where anything, literally anything, goes as you learn to listen, learn what you like, and what you don't, and learn to put it all together to make music your own.  The more you do it, the better you are able to choose the sounds you want to hear.  Take a motive, stir in compositional device or two, sprinkle with imagination, blend with courage and serve to venturous musicians.  Join us for a fun musical experience.
