Meet Your Instructors...

MUSIC!

Music & Movement, Choral Singing, and Ukulele: Kathleen McMinn, Indian Hill Music School

We're jamming with Kathy! The ukulele is a fun and fast way to get to know a string instrument. You'll be rockin' in no time -- in just a few days, we'll learn how to strum and sing our way through some of your favorite three- and four-chord songs! Then, explore music through rhythm and movement, learning games, listening exercises, hands-on instrument discovery and more! Students will also develop choral skills and prepare a performance piece to play for family and friends at the end of the program.

Kathy McMinn is a music educator with over 35 years of experience. Her passion for choral music has been her motivation in developing several successful choruses that have pushed the potential of their singers. She directed the Federal Furnace Treble Chorus and was the founding director of the Plymouth Children’s Chorus, two guest choruses who performed with the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra. Kathy founded South Shore Conservatory’s Pure Treble and Pure Harmony choruses. Both were accredited with performing with the Plymouth Philharmonic, the African Children’s Choir and a special performance for Vice President Biden. She directed the 2017 Plymouth Schools Elementary All Town Chorus and co-directed the Plymouth International Chorus in performances in Plymouth, Massachusetts and Plymouth, England. She directs the Indian Hill Music Youth Choruses.


ART!

Joni Parker-Roach, NOA Gallery

Joni Parker-Roach is dedicated to giving students (ages 6+) an outlet for creative expression and instruction in a variety of media. Mediums include drawing (with graphite pencils, graphite-tint pencils, colored pencils, pen & ink, micron/sharpie pens, Chinese Brush Art, Calligraphy and Zentangle Inspired Art) and painting (including, watercolor, acrylic and pastel painting). All materials used are artist-grade so that the student can learn and achieve quite wonderful work. Students will create in a supportive environment where they are 'the boss' and have final say in the direction their work is going. Joni will give them options and techniques to achieve their desired outcome of their work of art but they make the decision if they want to implement those suggestions. There will be a variety of music played to stimulate different feelings when creating a visual piece.

Joni Parker-Roach is a life-long artist, formally trained in fine art and art history at Worcester State College and post coursework at New England School of Art & Design, MassArt, The Art Centre in Antibes and private instruction. She is also the co-founder and owner of NOA Gallery & Art School and is now the curator for the Gallery at the Groton Inn
