Meet the Instrument No School Day Camp

Meet the Instrument: No-School Camp

Give your child a full day of fun on their out of school day!  This camp is active and full of challenges with music lessons, music classes, music games, and art class.  

This camp welcomes guest musicians, who introduce the violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, harp, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French horn, and a wide variety of percussion instruments. Hands-on experiences and opportunities to sing familiar songs with each instrument are a part of the curriculum, and children begin to develop an awareness of the distinctions among instrument families.  Music explorations focus on repertoire that highlights each instrument’s unique qualities, supported by group singing, movement activities and, when developmentally appropriate, an introduction to notation.

 Camp starts at 9 am with watercolor painting, and then musical yoga.  At noon we have cheese pizza or hot dogs for lunch and recess at 12:30 pm.  Morning and afternoon snacks included.
