Music & Soccer Summer Camp, presented by Artpark in partnership with Shul Music School, is an educational summer program that integrates music and soccer into creative thinking, problem solving, social behavior, and individual / team skills development in young people.
Through mental (music) and physical (soccer) development the Camp seeks to encourage broad thinking, wisdom, fitness, and excellence in performance within an intensive and safe environment.
Shul Music School: Meet Our Teachers
Russian-born Israeli composer, violin, viola, bandoneon and accordion player Dr. MOSHE SHULMAN received both his Bachelor’s and Master of Music degrees in Composition from the Jerusalem Academy of Music, and a Ph.D in Composition from the University at Buffalo (UB). He has studied with Mark Kopytman, David Felder, and Johannes Schollhorn. Moshe writes music for concert halls, theater and opera, and is a performer of classical music, Argentine tango, Klezmer, and Gypsy music. He also coaches youth soccer and tango dancing for adults. In Spring 2012, he led the Baires Klezmer Orchestra in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and in the summer of 2012, he formed the Buffalo Tango Orkestra, for which he arranges the music.
