Feel the Beat Camp
With body percussion rhythm activities, kids will be encouraged to move and engage with rhythm. Playing rhythm games motivates young musicians. Children will repeat what they hear, by using any of their safe surrounding objects to copy the rhythmic patterns. This camp will be a fun way to teach kids musical note values.
Campers will also learn to read the music with the DO-RE-MI Solfege method. This encourages the pupil to sing and therefore develop an ability to ‘hear’ the music in their head. This helps by anticipating how the music sounds before you actually play it. The Solfege method uses songs and games so it’s a great way for younger children to start their musical training.
This camp starts July 13 and will meet thrice a week on the following schedule:
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 2 pm EDT | 11 am PDT | 18:00 UTC
July 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, and 24
Each camp day campers will meet for two 45-minute sessions with their counselors and fellow campers with a 10-minute break between parts.Campers can also attend other activities on Lessonface that will be just for campers, including a talent show!
