LEARNING TO SWING!: Students at the Rockford College Music Academy participated in a Singing and Movement class Friday, June 25, as part of their Rockford College Music Academy String and Piano Camp, held June 21-25. Special guest instructor Janine Brass (above, center), a movement teacher from South Beloit, taught the classically-trained musicians how to relate to their music using their voices and bodies. The kids had a great time, said Marti Frantz, director of the Rockford College Music Academy. They loved her. Its really remarkable how shes able to teach from a wheel chair. The week-long camp offered courses in singing and visual arts. Its a way for us to enrich what we do during the school year, Frantz said.
