SUMMER 2020 INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN JANUARY
SUMMER PIANO ADVENTURES CAMP
In this fun one-week program, students will be introduced to the piano, musical notation, rhythm, fingering, and the musical alphabet through games and exercises. They will learn songs on the piano and perform in class groups. One part of the program time will be spent in the piano lab (one child per piano), and the other will be in an open classroom space where students will explore other musical activities through singing and movement. Students will be introduced to classical composers and different musical genres, and they will compose their own short pieces to perform in the final presentation.
