We will explore, discover, learn, and create new and different sounds during this week of musical discovery. Learn new French songs through musical play, and build your own instruments to play along. Internalize rhythm through dance and movement, and investigate the properties of sound through exploration of common instruments such as the guitar, violin, trumpet, and piano. Campers will go home with a new repertoire of musical skills, games, songs and instruments—a soundtrack for their summer! Camp led in French and English.
Instructors: Julie Schmidt and Assistant
Price: $315 for a full day; $205 for a half day
Explore sound and the many different ways to produce it. Illustrate songs with stories and paintings to better understand the effects and influence of sound. Invent and illustrate your own stories while exploring the many facets of sound and the different ways to make it. Not your normal “music” camp, this week really brings a hands-on approach to the wonderful world of music, art, and expression. Camp led in French.
