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!
July 1-3 (closed on the 4th and 5th), 9am-1pm
DRUMS, DRUMS, DRUMS (and DANCE!)
Jambo Africa! Children LOVE to drum on just about anything, and drums can be found in every culture. In this energizing and lively camp, we focus on drums, percussion instruments, dances and music from African, the Caribbean and South America. We learn about echoes (call and response), and we sing, clap and play to a variety of games and song of the African cultures. Learn basic djembe skills and other drums rhythms, songs and chants of Africa. An active and very engaging camp, with various forms of African folk dance, chants and music that will delight the drummers! Dramatic Play & Tales of the clever and famous, Anansi, the Spider - are all part of this week with Kathy.

NATIVE DRUM & RHYTHMS OF MY LAND
In camp, Kathy and campers explore the rhythms, dances and sounds of Native American music. Folklore, drumming, tales and dances are a part of this fun afternoon. As we investigate, compare, and contrast a wide variety of drums, your camper develops the investigative vocabulary needed in the sciences. When you repeat rhythm patterns at home, your child gets help in their math skills too.
