We believe that even over the summer it is important for children to be active in music! Camps and private instruction over the summer help our students retain what they have learned and continue to grow! Read down below to see all of the options!
Let's Go to the Movies! Music and Composition Camp- July 23-26th, 1pm-4pm. $125
Students will experience what it is like to be a silent movie musician! They will participate in small acting scenes, learn basic composition techniques, learn the history of the film music industry and popular film composers. There will be lots to listen and watch for as they figure out what soundtracks are appropriate to use in certain scenes. They will see what goes on behind the scenes in music and why it plays such a vital role in the movie industry. At the end of the camp, we will have a special screening of their movies for their families!
Hogwarts Music Camp- July 30-August 2, 9am-noon. $150
Hogwarts School of Magic and Music is a 12 hour camp that celebrates music and the delightful theme of Harry Potter and all things magic. Hogwarts Summer Magic and Music Camp injects an element of fun and mystery into the world of music study. Students come to Hogwarts anticipating the unexpected. Hogwarts Music Camp seeks to provide that unexpected yet educational aspect to summer camp. Students are sorted into "houses" by ability and age at the beginning of camp. Each house "travels" together throughout the day to various locations to delve into musical styles, skills and games. Camp focuses on the development of technique fundamental to the success with assigned camp pieces. Through "house" activities, Hogwarts campers strengthen rhythmic skills, listening skills, rudiments of theory and music history. Games played at camp not only reinforce musical knowledge and skill but promote a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie. Owls, Magical snacks and other fun treats included!
