Piano & Instrument Camps
6 years to 10 years
Blast Off with Piano (4 days, 1 hour): This unique beginners group piano program is exciting, fast paced and very rewarding. We cover rhythms, keyboard geography and play several simple ensemble pieces. Board games reinforce rhythms making learning fun. No previous experience is required. Parents attend a fun and informal recital during the last class. This is a perfect way to test the waters before committing to piano classes in the Fall.
Blast Off with Piano YC (4 days, 1 hour): This is similar to the Blast Off curriculum, but moves faster and is reserved for students who have attended some Kindermusik for the Young Child classes. You will be amazed by what the students can master in 4 days!
Math, Music & Mozart (4 days, 1 1/2 hours): Discover the connection between numbers, notes, and the infamous composer through games, puzzles, group activities and, of course, music! This camp is for children who are already music readers.
Musical Code (4 days, 1 1/2 hours): Unearth the secrets of playing all types of chords without reading music notes! By using symbols, you will learn how to "harmonize" any song of your choice.
Harp Ensemble (4 days, 1 1/2 hrs): For students who have been studying harp with Michelle already, come and meet your fellow harp enthusiasts! Learn how to play music in ensembles and how to communicate with each other through music. There will be an ensemble performance on Thursday at the end of the camp for friends and family.
Composition Camp (4 days, 1 hr): Is your child a mini composer? Are they interested in entering the Wake County Reflections competition? This camp, taught by a previous Reflections judge, will give your child a head start! We will be discussing and implementing composition techniques that encourage imagination, creativity and personal reflection. Your child will create a composition and perform it on the last day of class.
Blast Off with Ukulele (4 days, 1 hr): Uke'n play ukulele! Come explore this delightful 4 string instrument from Hawaii in this fun filled 4 day camp. We'll learn 2 or 3 chords, 4 notes and have you singing and strumming along. Loaner ukulele available.
