2015 Music History Camp

Summertime means…time for music camp!

Last week, I held my first music camp of the year: our annual Music History Blast From The Past camp using my composer lapbook curriculum. This year, I was able to re-use a few of the composers that we studied at camp three years ago, but I did create a new lapbook for Vivaldi.

Each day, we studied a period of music history and a composer from that time period.

What kid doesn’t enjoy arts and crafts + music?! :)

The four composers we studied this year were Antonio Vivaldi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Amy Beach, and John Cage.

Here is a photo of this year’s camp T-shirt design. :) I ordered my shirts from CustomInk.com.

Interested in holding your own music history camp using these composer lapbooks? Here is a blog post describing how to do just that!

Stay tuned — tomorrow I will share more about the new lapbooks now available in my digital shop: Vivaldi and Prokofiev.

    I LOVE the t-shirts!! Did you design it yourself? I would LOVE to have these for my studio if possible.

      Yes, I designed it myself using the online editor at CustomInk.com (the same site where I ordered the shirts). I had previously designed the keyboard graphic myself on my computer, so I just had to upload that and then add the text!
