It’s time to tickle the ivories! This camp is a great introduction for young beginners, as well as an awesome program to help boost intermediate and advanced pianists, helping them to take their piano playing skills to the next level. Counting, clapping, and playing basic rhythmic patterns and melodies is implemented, as well as sight-reading, ear-training, and music composition, for the more advanced pianists who are up for a challenge.
June 22 - 26
Give me a beat! Campers, we will explore various types of drums and percussion instruments in the percussion family. We will introduce basic rudiments and rhythmic patterns on practice pads and/or the drum set, help develop stick control, and good hand-eye coordination (pads and sticks provided). Each camper will be given a new pair of drumsticks to take home at the end of the week!
July 6 - 10
Guitars: Acoustic, Electric, and Bass Guitar
Campers are divided into groups according to age and/or skill level. We will learn about the different parts of their instruments, proper care, good posture, fingering, strumming, plucking, as well as basic theory, notation and tuning. Each camper must bring their own instrument (or, we may be able to provide rental options). Electric and bass guitar players must bring their own cords and amps. NO toy guitars, please – smile.
July 13 - 17
Theme: The Lion King
Calling aspired singers, dancers, and/or actors! We are excited to introduce our newest camp this summer: Musical Theatre Camp! What a great introduction to the performing arts. Campers will get a little taste of what it is like to rehearse and prepare for an audition or performance. This includes stage presence, learning singing/vocal techniques, acting, reading short scripts, and choreography. On the last day of camp, campers will take center stage with an end-of-week performance showcasing what they have learned based on The Lion King theme! Are you ready? LIGHTS…CAMERA…ACTION!
July 20 - 24
Also, newly added this summer is Ukulele Camp! Campers will learn a little history about the ukulele, naming the different parts of the instrument, how to hold, strum, and even play two to three chords to incorporate in songs. Campers with playing experience will learn how to play written arrangements for two or more parts, learn more chords, and how to read tab. If you have access to one, please free to bring your uke to camp. If not, we can give suggestions on where you can purchase one. Or, you can rent one of ours for a small fee (see Director about rental details).
