Steve Schick, percussionist, conductor and Music Director and Conductor of the La Jolla Symphony Orchestra has been named the Music Director of the Ojai Music Festival. Founded in 1947, the Ojai Music Festival is an annual contemporary classical music festival held in Ojai, California. Along with putting together some of the top concerts in Southern California, the Ojai Festival is also passionate about providing music education to all ages.

This year, they have developed a course taught by Steve Schick called “2015 OjaiU: The Beat of The World – The Art of Percussion.” The course is made up of 4 online classes. The course is free, but you must sign up to participate.

According to the website, there are two ways to sign up.

1: Use the signup form below and you’ll get an email each Monday with a link as the new class goes live.
2: Tweet to @OjaiFestivals using the hashtag #OjaiU2015 and we’ll send you an invite.

Here’s a list of the courses:

CLASS NO. 1 – “THE BEAT OF THE WORLD”
CLASS NO. 2 – “THE PHYSICALITY OF SOUND”
CLASS NO. 3 – “STORIES IN SOUND”
CLASS NO. 4 – “HITTING THINGS: A VOCABULARY AND LANGUAGE”

The classes have been amazing and I would recommend signing up now at OJAIU.org.
