Fantastic Summer Music Opportunity for Washtenaw County Students

I have known about the Ann Arbor Public Schools Summer Music Program for a couple of years, but this is the first time I've noticed (and maybe it's the first time it has happened?) that it is open to all Washtenaw County students in grades 6-12 at all levels of instrumental music. What a great opportunity! (I know some of the teaching staff, and have a lot of respect for their musical and teaching talent.)

I'm not going to type in every class, but suffice it to say that there are jazz classes: jazz band, drumline, big band. There are also regular band, wind and percussion, and orchestra classes. There is even the possibility of instrument rental! For low-income AAPS students, there are scholarships available.
