DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien's Zach Heyde, an award-winning pianist and composer, is set to teach a music composition class this summer at the Darien Arts Center.
Heyde will teach the class as part of the summer program at the Darien Arts Center during July. The two-week course aims "to fill a gap in young students’ music education that is too often overlooked: the ability to write, record, and perform one’s own music," according to a press release.
Heyde, a student at the Hartt School of Music, has written music for films and teaches piano to students of all ages.
"In Music Composition, students will learn a variety of compositional techniques such as basic music theory, structuring a song, and writing stronger melodies," according to the release. "Additionally, students will learn about basic notation and recording software. Prerequisites include some level of proficiency with an instrument and reading notated music."
Classes will meet from July 7 to July 18 in the DAC Visual Arts Studio. Registration is available online at the Darien Arts Center website .
