Students of any level of experience will learn or deepen foundational musical skills in a relaxed setting. Working with vocal coaches, percussionists, guitar and bass teachers from various cultures, each participant will connect with artists from across the greater Seattle region. This is an excellent entry point for anyone aged 11 - 25 to start their work with The Rhapsody Project. If you do not have an instrument, one will be provided for you.
In addition to weekly meetings, students are invited to attend Tuesday evening drop-in hours at King Street Station; these sessions will supplement the lessons learned in the regular meetings.
Students will have the opportunity to interview each culture bearer at NW Folklife Production Studios. Those sessions will be edited and cataloged on the NWFL website archive.
In the Spring, students who wish to perform will showcase what they’ve learned in the Rhapsody Showcase at the NW Folklife Festival.
