Timucua Arts Foundation
Timucua Arts Foundation has provided music education opportunities in Central Florida since the Fall of 2016 through its Works With Sounds program. By focusing on a conceptual approach to music composition and utilizing alternative notation techniques, Works With Sounds empowers people of all skill levels to actively engage with composition and artistic expression.
Timucua’s new online version of the course will be centered around this same conceptual approach, but will also feature a project calendar compatible with the OCPS academic calendar and International Baccalaureate music requirements. At the conclusion of the online class each student will have: completed three compositions between 3 – 6 minutes in length, studied traditional music from across the globe, learned the basics of electronic composition in TwistedWave Online an open source, browser-based digital audio workstation, and learned the fundamentals of music analysis.
New in 2020, Timucua offers “Jazz in 7 Minutes a Day,” a comprehensive and methodical approach towards building facility, phrasing and vocabulary in the jazz idiom. The course is designed as a daily practice routine of scales, arpeggios, phrases, and a unique approach to sight reading that will prepare you for life on the bandstand. The course is designed for individual and classroom instruction, and will help any high school jazz program reach new heights.
