DoSo Freestyle Duets
Featuring David Mills, electric guitar, performing with Patrick Smith, vibraphone; Ben Dean, electric violin; and Istvan B’Racz, piano. DoSo Freestyle is very much like “freestyle rap” in that the musicians just begin
playing with no preconceived notion of where it will go. However, unlike freestyle with words, two musicians can “speak” at the same time, and it still makes sense.

NMS students, ranging in age from toddlers to seniors in their 90s, study music, dance and drama and participate in over 100 weekly ensembles. NMS offers individual and group instruction on 30-plus instruments and presents more than 250 performances and events each year. NMS also houses an arts-integrated preschool and toddler program, an After School Arts Academy and several summer programs.
