Program Description:
The music program at PATHS opened its doors to high school students interested in the study of performing arts in 1999 under the name of The Arts Academy, where ti received local and national support.  Many interested Greater Portland residents and the Maine commission for the arts helped create an environment for highly focused and individualized study. The music program offers unique opportunities for individual and group studies with practicing arts professionals and arts educators. Outstanding professional artists from the community engage students in classes, workshops, performance and seminars. Students must audition for available seats. The program is designed to offer student musicians a diverse experience in the music industry. There are three main components of the music program at PATHS. Students study the Theory and Ear/Rhythm training of music, they practice their solo and ensemble performing skills in our ‘classroom theater’, and they learn Audio recording, editing, and mixing in our Recording Studio. Some other examples of work we do here are: Song writing, the Business of Music, and Music History.
