Summer Camp 2017: Songwriting and composition
not We are so excited to announce our Summer Camp for 2017: Songwriting and Composition! This half-day musical interactive and activity based camp is designed for students ages 6 - 11. Prior musical experience or exposure is strongly recommended but not required.
Over the week of camp, students will learn basic music notation and composition, explore how to capture ideas, imagination, and sounds and creatively interpret them into original compositions, learn basic chord progressions heard in pop music today and discover how to create their own music using the same building blocks, and learn how to write lyrics and set words to music.
Daily activities will include learning the concepts and ideas outlined above, reinforcing the material through group activities and group composition exercises, and personal "composing" time where students will have the opportunity to work on their own original compositions and receive one-on-one tutoring from camp staff.
On the final day of camp, students will participate in a Composer Showcase where they will be able to perform or display their original compositions for parents and families.
We are looking forward to a exciting week of camp and hope to see you there!
