I haven’t shared much about my summer music camps yet — and they are coming up soon!
Like last year, I’m holding one camp each month. They run Monday through Thursday from 10am-12pm. I chose a different topic for each month:
“I’ve Got Rhythm!” – (June)
During this camp, students will benefit from focusing on arguably the most essential element of music: rhythm! There will be lots of opportunities for group music-making, using body percussion (clapping, snapping, tongue clucking, etc.) and hand-held percussion instruments. Throughout the week, we will also complete workbook about various aspects of rhythm (pulse, time signatures, rhythm values, etc). For students ages 6-14.
“Music History Blast From The Past” – (July)
Back by popular demand, this camp will give students a glimpse into the lives of the four different great classical composers. As we study the composers we will be not only listening to the music of each time period, but also looking at the instruments, clothes, and art of each time period in order to make the past come alive. Each day, we will focus on a time period from music history and create a scrapbook page of pictures/notes to take home. It will be similar to last year’s music history camp, but we will cover four different composers this year. Campers will be sure experience the thrill of a blast from the past during this music history camp! For students ages 6-14.
“Music of the World” – (August)
Join us for a journey around to world to study the music of different cultures! Campers will travel to four different countries to learn about each culture, music style, and musical instruments. Students will complete a workbook and craft their own musical instrument each day. Join us for this adventure! For students ages 6-14.
