The Summer Music issue, published in Summer 2017, is all about the joy of singing, dancing, playing and making noise. You’ll learn to scat from jazz singer Lea DeLaria, and write a great song from folk singer Ani DiFranco. You’ll master fun ways to move to the beat from the world’s best dancers, including ballerina Misty Copeland, tap dancer Michelle Dorrance, and break- dancer Ana “Rokafella” Garcia. You’ll also have a chance to escape into a story by New York Times best-selling author Emma Straub, journey into outer space (and hear the music of the stars) with astrophysicist Janna Levin, listen to a humpback whale chorus with biomusicologist Patricia Gray, and jam with chef Jessica Koslow of LA’s Sqirl. Plus, there’s neat stuff to make too: a disco ball, a rainbow xylophone, a contraption that’ll allow you to actually see sound waves. Also: a maze, a secret code, a coloring page, a dot-to-dot and more! 56 pages, no ads.
