Performance & Songwriting
(teens only)
July 23- July 27

Songwriting:  This class will pay close attention to the synergy of melody and lyric to help students create songs that both stand out and are topically significant. We will focus on the students’ songs and song ideas – not prolonged exercises — to develop and improve the music with the goal of enhancing each student’s personal song repertoire.  Any type of instrument is acceptable.

Performance: This class will offer musical performers the techniques needed to “get out their own way” in order to achieve each performer’s best standard.  Stage nerves, flow, audience rapport, and related issues will all be addressed in the context of public performance. This class applies to any type of musical performance.

Teens 2 -5pm

Chopped
July 30 – August 3
Does your child love the popular cooking show “Chopped!”? If so, Hunt Hill Farm has a unique and fun opportunity for them to compete with others their own age in a friendly cooking competition. While working in teams and strategizing together, they will use their creativity to turn each mystery basket into a winning dish! There will be three menu items (appetizer, entrée, and dessert) and each group will work together to present each course to the judges. The winner each day will be based on taste, presentation, creativity, and the use of the mystery basket. Groups will come together at the end of class and enjoy the dinner they have prepared each day.

Around the World
August 13 – 17
The United States is a melting pot of various cuisines from Around the World. We are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sample and enjoy foods from around the world by visiting area restaurants. However, once you learn about different ingredients used to create other cuisines and then apply classic cooking techniques, it is easy to enjoy these exotic tastes in your own home. In this class, teens will be introduced to a variety of foods from Around the World and learn how they can prepare them at home. This 5-day cooking series will be as fun as it is tasty!
