Loog Musical Learning Lab with Melissa Salguero
Loog Musical Learning Lab Campers will learn how to make musical instruments entirely from materials that can be found around the house! The camp, designed and taught by music teacher dynamo Melissa Salguero will utilize real hands-on craft activities to help students learn about the characteristics of instrument families and the science behind how each generates sound. Following each lesson, campers will make a homemade instrument to apply the concepts learned. Campers do not need to own a Loog guitar to fully participate in the camp.
Lessons will consist of a 30-minute welcome routine, 10-minute break, and a 30-minute application/wrap up session. Below is a general break down of each camp day.
August 3: Welcome, All sound comes from vibrations.
August 5: String Instruments
August 7: Woodwind Instruments
August 10: Brass Instruments
August 12: Percussion Instruments

Each camp day campers will meet for two 30-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 magic show and a talent show.
