CAMPS DETAILS:

June 17-20, 9am-1pm
SING A MUSICAL – MARY POPPINS (old and new songs)
Come Sing A Musical! Drum and dance too! Children can more easily learn and practice singing on pitch when their repertoire includes songs that have a limited range, common rhythmic and melodic patterns, and are written in the pentatonic scale. We begin camp with the joyful journey of learning to sing with the fundamental interval, sol-mi...then adding on to sol-la-mi, etc. Successful experiences lead to confidence...and confidence leads to more singing!

Camp inspired by the expert guidance of exceptional Choir, Piano and Kindermusik Teacher, Sapna Shah and Sophie Bakaev. Using the creative and imagination of the students together, they sing songs, dance and play instruments also! An energetic camp for your child to harness their vocal power and simple acting skills. A performance is on the last day of camp for kids to share with their favorite adults!
