The Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) is proud to announce the addition of a new collection of programming which it will be launching this fall called MAMMOTH. Where MAMM is already well known for its fun, electric guitar-driven rock programming such as its popular summer camp series, its annual Girls Rock! concert, and the MAMM SLAM battle of the bands competition, its new MAMMOTH program will allow the school to broaden its reach across genres and instrument families.
With a name as immense as its musical scope, MAMMOTH will consist of TWO major components:
- The MAMMOTH Brass Band is a New Orleans style brass ensemble for students ages 10 to 18. This funky, energetic group will give students a chance to perform in a professional setting alongside some of the best musicians in the Southern Maine area. Led by new MAMM instructor Kyle Hardy, this band program will educate students about different styles, grooves, off-beat rhythms, improvisation, and a bit of history surrounding the brass band tradition in New Orleans. Beginning in September The MAMMOTH Brass Band will meet at MAMM on Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm. Tuition is $75 per month.
- The MAMMOTH Rock Chorus program will bring local children and teens together to rehearse and perform popular songs in an inspiring and supportive setting. In both small and large groups the Rock Chorus will celebrate contemporary and classic rock, R&B, and pop music. The program will be run by MAMM instructors Emilia Dahlin and Chas Lester. Beginning in September The MAMMOTH Rock Chorus will meet at MAMM on Mondays from 4-5pm for 8-11 year olds, 6-7pm for 11-13 year olds and 7-8pm for teens. Tuition is $50 per month.
The brass band and rock chorus will rehearse independently and will perform individually at various MAMM events throughout the year. But don't be surprised if these two groups join forces with some of MAMM's rock ensembles to perform together at an epic end-of-the-school year concert!
To celebrate the launching of these new programs, MAMM is offering the first month's tuition for FREE to students who enroll in a MAMMOTH program by August 31st. Please note that MAMM is also offering an early bird discount of $10 off (enter code earlybird10) its $50 annual registration fee to ALL of its students who sign up for lessons or classes before August 15th.
