The Notes from the Heart Music Program began when a group of musical artists and music lovers in the Pittsburgh area came together with a desire to create a summer program that would bring the joy of music to children and adults with disabilities and chronic illness. Performance, education, appreciation, creativity, and enjoyment are our five hallmarks that bring fulfillment to those attending these camps. Participating in The Woodlands’ Notes from the Heart programs allows participants to find their voice and channel choice to engage in self-expression.
Ages 16-25: July 17-22
Participants are provided with a comprehensive experience that enables them to explore the universal expression of music, find joy in making music, and the accomplishment of participating in a musical performance. The hallmark of the Notes from the Heart Music Program for teens is the spectacular “Bringing out the Stars”* concert, which culminates the weeklong summer camp, and celebrates accomplishments with family, friends, and members from the community. The Notes from the Heart Music Camps are one-of a-kind experience and a destination for teens with disability and a strong interest in music.
Ages 26 and older: July 10-15
Participants continue to nurture their musical interests as they engage in composition, small ensemble performances, solo performance, and concentrated instrumental study. Participants do not need to have attended the youth & teen camp in order to join the camp for Adults. This week at camp encourages participants to find strengths, passions and skills to achieve their personal and musical goals. Hard work of participants is showcased in the final performance, “The Starlight Serenade.”*
