Level II is a fast-paced, deep dive into the art and science of music recording. We'll cover the process from start to finish -- from prepping a song's production schedule to performing your best for studio sessions, along with the many layers of tracking, editing, mixing, and mastering that are used to take a simple song and make it into a radio-ready track. All skill levels and genres of musical interest welcome.
Mon-Fri, Aug 8-12, 10am-5pm*. Intended for Ages 13 and up (or prior approval)
*Schedule exception: Aug 12: 10 am-4pm)

Mon-Fri, Aug 1-5, 10 am-5 pm. $475. Suggested ages 11-14 If your kid has ever sensed that they could sound "wayyy better" if they only had the right skills and equipment, this camp will be a thrill! Learn the basics of studio session preparation and song production, then get actual experience in tracking, session performance, editing, and mixing -- on their own and others' songs -- with Mary Beth Maziarz, pro engineer Terence DH, and other guest musical professionals.

All skill and experience levels welcome. Mon-Fri, July 25–29, 10am- 4pm. $400. Ages 13 and up
Many kids today emulate "American Idol"-type rock and pop stars, and that's great -- it's a fun glamorous vibe! But there are also a whole lot of talented young poets, garage jammers, bedroom tiktok-ers, and shy singer-songwriters...if so, it's time for them to know that there is a place for ALL kinds of writers and performers -- they just need to find the one that's right for them.
This week-long camp is a great way for teenage singers/writers/players to get a strong foundation (or to expand their knowledge and experience) as they explore their musical interest in a supportive, fun environment. We'll cover foundational elements of songwriting structure, lyrics, and melody, as well as how to deal with stagefright or self-consciousness while performing -- even if they're playing just for themselves or their friends! There will also be opportunities for partnering, tips on how to start getting gigs and publicity, and plenty of ways to try out strategies for sharpening writing and performance skills. They'll leave with a much fuller understanding of what strengths are most important, how to hone their existing skills, and how to move forward on their musical journeys!

The "Hat's Off" Women's Giving Fund event will be a celebration of the women-and-children based organizations that have utilized Park City's grant program, the volunteers and leaders who organize WGF efforts, the gifts of founding and existing members, and the NEW WOMEN interested in being a part of this dynamic, generous community. Mary Beth will give a short presentation on creativity in her signature "music and storytelling" style. Please contact Jody Gross at WGF for more information.
Weilenmann School of Discovery, Park City, UT
Tue-Fri, July 5-8, 10 am-4 pm.
$350. Suggested ages 11-14 All skill experience levels, and genres welcome.
If you have a young singer/songwriter/player who is interested in learning the basics (or expanding their knowledge and experience), this four-day camp will be the perfect opportunity to explore their musical interest in a supportive, fun environment. We'll cover foundational elements of songwriting structure, lyrics, and melody, as well as how to present/perform a song in the best way possible -- even if you're not the greatest singer or player (yet)! There will also be opportunities for partnering, for those students who might need (or prefer to be) accompanists, who are interested in writing only lyrics or music, or who just would like to see what it's like to play onstage with others.

Outdoor concerts in Midway are magical...the pastoral settings, the easy drive and calming drop into the valley, the great mix of people. Shows in Midway are always some of MB's favorites -- and August 7th's show is sure to be extra special!
Mary Beth's music fits right in to the relaxed, thoughtful vibe -- and her set for this Midway show is unique. Having had many months of downtime to explore some different music, she'll premiere a few pieces you've probably never heard before. She's chosen several songs that she rarely (if ever) performs live, including some obscure Tin Pan Alley gems, a few rare originals from her albums, and even a hymn or two. Over the years, people have suggested songs that are special to them as possible covers for MB...in this show, she'll share some of those wonderful requests.
If you haven't been to Zermatt, it's right across the road from The Homestead, where Mary Beth has played many times in years past. (The Homestead is undergoing deep renovations and construction, so no shows there this year. Zermatt has thankfully taken up the mantle so these "shows can go on!").
This show is part of the Ed Stevens Memorial Concert Series, a tribute to a great guy who -- with his wife Anne -- built a wonderful, enduring legacy of live original music in Midway. We miss you Ed.
Show starts at 7 p.m. Free. No reservations needed. Arrive early for best lawn spots and to make sure you catch opening act Jeff Hinton!
Kids, picnics, coolers, blankets, chairs, etc. are WELCOME. (Our four-legged besties must sadly stay at home, tho.)
Visit the Bakery at Zermatt (open til 7pm) for delicious takeout if you're not up for prepping food ahead!
Hope to see you there! (And that the smoke clears out a bit before showtime. :)
Mary Beth is thrilled to be part of the inaugural Park City Songwriter Festival. See her, along with dozens of Grammy winners and writers of #1 hits, play in listening rooms throughout Main Street Sept 13-14.

Last year this music and arts weekend was a blast! More details to come, but mark your calendars for a great event if you're a collector, devoted listener, or art lover!
Come hang out in Old Town for a little MountainTownMusic set at the Miner's Park stage. Great sound, chairs and cool drinks on location for you, and some new songs. Hope you can make it! Free & all ages.
This Saturday night concert series has been one of Mary Beth's favorite engagements for years now. FREE to all, family-friendly, bring a picnic or cooler and a blanket or short chairs for the lawn. The Homestead is also just a cool place to hang out, have a meal before or after the show, or even spend the night for a little vacation.
Come enjoy a chill-out, blissed-out "listening room in the forest" with the absolutely lovely and talented BETH WOOD. We're planning a stellar evening out in the yard with guitar, vocals, and original songcraft from one of the folk scene's most engaging women. (If weather does NOT permit, we'll just move it inside.)
Social hour 6 p.m.
Show at 7 p.m.
S'mores after the show.
Blankets, short chairs, and cushy cushions welcome. We'll have coolers set up and some beverages, but feel free to bring your faves and a dish to share if you like. MB may play a song or two (or join Beth for some).
Tickets: $15 per person
Beth's gorgeous CDs will be available at the show.

I’m speaking and playing at a unique gathering in Park City called the Wasatch Back Oasis.
My topic is: "Kick-Ass Creativity in Real Life,” which is something I think about and am working on ALL the time. If you ever wonder if you’re making a real impact on the world, if your attempts at self-expression matter, or how to get a creative part of you up and running, tomorrow’s talk and songs may have something for you just at the right time.
Wasatch Back Oasis is a secular, thoughtful group that gets together to delve into life’s questions and provide a breather for the lively pace we maintain here. (Kind of like church I guess, but no dogma and less formal — with a TEDlike idea-rich vibe.)
All are welcome.
If you're enjoying the music and would like to send a tip, I will humbly accept and greatly appreciate your support. Your contributions will help me continue to make music & host more live online performances. ***OOH! Fun little bonus*** THE HIGHEST TIPPER OF THE NIGHT will receive a SIGNED LYRIC SHEET from me of their fave song. Thanks!!

hi everybody! I did a fun homespun show on Saturday May 23rd on Facebook Live for Park City Institute (with help from lots of other great local folks, like Mountain Town Music and Randy Barton). It's now posted to watch -- you'll see some great old favorites, a couple classic covers, and even a brand new song. I'm hoping to make a tradition of kicking off the weekend with a few live songs for you all on Fridays, so let me know if you have any requests! I'm including a tip jar here (right below this info) in case anyone's might be inclined to send a 'very special hello' after watching the show or with their song suggestions for future virtual concerts. Thanks in advance, you lovely people!
Here's the link to watch the show: https://www.facebook.com/parkcityinstitute/videos/1050343348693262/
I apologize to those who had a little trouble logging on...it seems to be a little tricky. But we're all learning. :)
Best wishes everyone and I hope you enjoy the show!
