We have adjusted our summer program schedule and will continue to engage our students online using the Zoom video platform for sessions. As the City of New York continues to open through the various stages, we will make modifications when needed, as the summer months progress. Music sessions are scheduled to start on July 7, 2020 and end on August 13, 2020. The days of operation are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12pm to 2pm. We have designed a progress benchmark system, where students will upload a personal short two minute video of the assignments. This will allow us to create ensemble videos (group performances) once the students understand how to play and record to a click track. It will be a more concentrated and vigorous curriculum which will expand their skill set when this six week program concludes.
The dramatic impact Quest has on the lives of its students is most evident for those who have been part of our family the longest. These students, over half remained in the program for close to 5 years, credit Quest for the care and nurturing they needed to develop a high sense of self-confidence and skill sets. As a result, Quest students remain an integral part of the Quest family and return to perform, teach and/or mentor on a continual basis.
Arts in Education engages students of all ages, teachers, parents and community members in educational arts experiences in a full range of arts disciplines, including digital, literary, performing and visual arts.
