2013 “I Got Rhythm” Summer Camp – Sneak Peek

This week, my students and I are in the middle of rhythm camp!


My blogging might be a bit sporadic for the rest of the week as I continue preparing and teaching this camp.  We’ve been busy working in our workbook…


…and playing games and making crafts, too!


I will be blogging more details about our “I Got Rhythm” camp pretty soon.  Stay tuned!

    Is the rhythm booklet one of your original creations? :)

      Yes, it is! I’m going to eventually list the “I Got Rhythm” camp curriculum in my shop. :)

    I always enjoy seeing what you are up to!! I am in the second term of lessons with 6 of my students. We have had great fun exploring notes and finding out how our hands work :-) I have noticed some challenges with their hand positions and have started with a technique boot camp. We have 4 weeks of training different combinations of fingers and getting them fit and functioning. I had an idea of starting with rhythms next. Being a teacher is so much fun! It really challenges me to think outside the box. Each of my students are also so precious and it is a privilege to be part of their music journey. All the best to you and your students for this week!!

      Thanks, Aletta! It IS fun to be a teacher and be part of our students’ music journeys!

    Cool, can’t wait for updates. I love seeing photos. :) I notice that the girl holding the beads isn’t wearing the camp shirt in the last photo, but she is in the first. Out of curiosity, did she not have the shirt for some reason, but still wore green to match everyone else? That would be cute– such dedication to the camp.

      Every student received a camp T-shirt, but they were not required to wear it every day of camp. The student you mentioned wore green that day by coincidence. :)

    So excited to find your site and see another teacher working outside the traditional lines of the 1/2 hr. sit at the piano lesson. I am also in the midst of piano camp and can’t believe how much fun we are having. Feel free to borrow any of the ideas you find on my website or blog! I think we have the best jobs in the world!

      Thanks, Joleen! I’ll be sure to check out your blog. I agree – we have the best jobs in the world!

    Hello Joy, I came across your website and blog while searching for creative ways to teach basic music theory and solfege to kids (ages 4-6). I must say that I love your methods. You’re taking the traditional and given it a fresh, fun feel – making it interesting for kids. It looks like your students are in for an enriching and stimulating musical experience. Good luck with the camp!

    I am looking for the I’ve Got Rhythm Camp curriculum in your shop. Will it be there soon?

    It is highly motivational and helps you to make several new friends.
    Oliver’s community focus, teamwork with other teachers and desire to see all students succeed are just a few of the reasons that she was named 2006 National Teacher of the Year-an achievement
    for which she was recently honored by President George
    W. Download and print out guidelines, forms, worksheets, and a check list.
    I’ve seen hundreds of people get in shape fast and actually have fun doing it while participating in boot camp workouts.
    Camp Akeela 1 Thoreau Way Thetford Center, VT 05072
    Camp Director: Debbie & Eric Sasson Assistant
    Director: Jaynie Goodbody Head Counselor: Jaynie Goodbody & Rob
    Glyn-Jones. And these are very good reasons why you have to get camp management software.
    If you happen to be camping by yourself you should know that not all one-person camping tents can always
    fit a person with additional gear. They also offer a nine college credit special education course over the summer.
    If you are looking for some advice then just
    down and enjoy. Rigorous physical training and exercises strengthen the child’s
    health and body.
