Summer music camp coming to Brownwood Music

Brownwood Music, 201 W. Baker, is preparing for its second summer music camp for beginner-to-intermediate young musicians.
    The four-day camp, for ages 6-17, is July 24-27 from noon-3:30 p.m. Five classes are offered: introduction to voice, guitar, drums, piano and ukulele. The cost is $90, payable with a $50 deposit and the remainder due on the first day of class.
    Call 646-1365 for more information. Registration forms are available at the store.
    Instruments will be provided, with discounts offered on instruments if any are purchased.

    Brownwood Music owner Jodie Armstrong will teach voice; Jackie Andersen, who gives lessons at Brownwood Music, will teach guitar, drums and piano; and Kaeli Goodgion, who teaches in Howard Payne University’s pre-college music program, will teach ukulele.
    Music is a universal language with no language barrier, Andersen said before the start of last summer’s camp. She said the camp will expose students to music and hopefully get them excited and continuing in music.
    Andersen said she got the idea of a music camp last summer because “everybody was doing camps at the high school, and I thought, why not a music camp? Instead of playing on their phones and playing Guitar Hero, they can actually come in an play an instrument.”

    Jodie Armstrong once worked in the insurance business and lived for a time in Dallas and Abilene. For the past 21 years, the 1984 Brookesmith High School graduate has made her living in music.
    Armstrong has owned Brownwood Music since 1996, and the business has survived the online competition that has forced some brick-and-mortar stores to close. While she’s legally listed as the sole owner, Armstrong said her husband, Don, is, practically speaking, joint owner.
