Peanut Butter and Jam Sessions

GPAC's celebrated music education program marks its 18th season this year, introducing children ages 8 and under to a wide variety of musical instruments and styles. Sessions are held on scheduled Saturdays at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. (unless otherwise noted) in the GPAC Black Box Theater.

 

GPAC Youth Symphony Program

Under the direction of Dr. Pu-Qi Jiang, the GPAC Youth Symphony Orchestra is a full orchestra consisting of strings, winds, brass, percussion, harp and keyboard. Admitted by audition, GYSO musicians are advanced students 14-19 years of age. Thanks to generous scholarships, no student is turned away due to lack of funds. For more information please contact Emily Hefley at This email address is being protected from spambots.

GPAC offers opportunities for creative self-discovery through summer arts camps, such as Fairy Ballet Camp, ARTventures Drawing and Painting, Once Upon a Time Theater Camp, Bookworm Writing & Binding, Wild Willy’s Summer Music Jamboree and a Dance Sampler Camp. The camps are designed to stimulate artistic talents and provide enjoyable, enriching experiences.

 

Student Performances

GPAC connects children, teachers and schools across the Mid-South to the performing arts through exciting weekday performances in music, dance and theater. GPAC student performances are specifically designed to engage students on a deeper level by exposing them to high quality performing arts, complementing school curriculum and expanding cultural awareness. These performances, offered at a special reduced rate, are held throughout the year and typically last 1 hour.

Classes

GPAC Ballet Program

GPAC classes are designed to offer high quality ballet instruction in a non-competitive and nurturing environment. Students develop rhythm, coordination, flexibility, creative expression and self esteem while learning ballet technique appropriate for their age.

Guitar Lessons

GPAC offers private guitar lessons to students of all ages with singer/songwriter Josh Threlkeld. Through one-on-one sessions, students will sharpen techniques, learn compositions and understand different genres. Lessons are scheduled Mon-Thurs between 2-7 pm.
