Summer Music Camp
with Brian Gilmore
The Summer Music Camp at Ocean County College offers students an opportunity to explore the multi-faceted world of classical music under the guidance of skilled and experienced instructors. We provide students with an intense performance-based music-making experience focused on master classes, guided practice, and ensemble experience. Students will also receive daily group classes in music theory and history, opening a window to the great composers and their masterworks while covering concepts essential for developing their own musicianship.
Students will be divided into groups based on age and skill level, and will be instructed by Brian Gilmore and Katherine Roselli.
A native of Toms River, Brian Gilmore holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in piano performance. As a lecturer at Ocean County College, he oversees the applied music program, has revitalized the classical recital series, and regularly collaborates with faculty, students, and area musicians. Through his work as an educator and performer, he aims to nurture musical awareness and understanding in the community, while ensuring that students with a desire to excel in music are afforded that opportunity.
