2013 Music History Camp

My students and I are in the middle of Music History camp this week and having a blast!  This year, I’m teaching 5 girls between the ages of 5 and 8.

Yesterday, we studied Handel (using my lapbook curriculum) and the Baroque Era.  Today was Haydn and the Classical Era.  We have two more days of camp to go, when we’ll be covering the Romantic Era and the Modern Era.  Wish me luck!  It is a lot to cover in just four 2-hour classes, but I am pleased with the information my students are absorbing so far.  This camp will serve as a good first introduction to the stylistic periods of Western music!

  1. I hope your music camp went well! I had my very first camp ever last week. The first day we made drums out of tin cans and balloons and introduced rhythm and other basic music theory. The second day I used your Beethoven lapbook, which was a hit! And the third day I used a variety of your water games shown in other entries of your blog. I had a blast and so did the kids! Thank you for sharing so generously your ideas and advice to the newbies!
