*NEW* Bass Workshop Camp 11-15 years *NEW*
The latest addition to our roster of music camps, this workshop puts the focus on bass! With a curriculum spanning from loop pedals to ensemble playing, local musician Chris Brown will take students on an adventure to the low end. Students will explore melody, harmony, and rhythm, and where these three intersect on the bass guitar. For this camp we are requiring 1 year of bass playing experience, and students from 10 to 15 years old.
Ukulele and Percussion Exploration Camp 4-6 years
This camp combines our popular 1/2 day camps into one. Students will be exploring the worlds of two dynamic instruments- Ukuleles and Drums. All students will participate in a daily group ukulele lesson, and be introduced to a different percussion instrument and corresponding musical genre each day. Students will be building some of their own instruments, as well as sing, dance, play games and be introduced to note reading. This is a great way to introduce these popular instruments to your child, either as a first experience with music or supplementing another instrument.
Rock Band Camp 8-11 or 11-15 years or 9-13
The coolest camp on the hill! Students will form a real rock band, pick a band name, pick out songs to learn and perform a gig Friday. This is the fun way to get your kid ensemble experience, gain confidence performing and even try their hand at a different instrument. ALL instruments are welcome (yes, even the violin, clarinet and accordion). ALL levels welcome- absolute beginners can try their hand at guitar, bass, singing, and percussion.
Classical Kids Camp 4-6
The fun way to introduce your child to music! Master musicians Anna Nizhegorodtseva and Enrique Reynosa will lead a camp that is as fun as it is educational. Students will choose the piano or violin for group classes and come together to sing, play games, and learn about notes, instruments, and composers. This unique camp will open a new world to your child.
Broadway Sings 8-16 years
No one is stuck in the back of the chorus line in this camp! With a heavy emphasis on the “music” aspect of “musical theatre”- students will prepare 1 or 2 group numbers and prepare a solo or duet number for the Cabaret performance Friday at 5:00. Students will all receive both one-on-one and group instruction by our amazing vocal coach Eric Gramatges and learn about the history of Broadway from the Ziegfeld Follies through Matilda.
This is a 2 Week Camp.
Sing Together 7-10 Years
Singing in a choir is a prized childhood memory for so many people, including a lot of Music on the Hill staff. In Sing Together camp students will sing together. Don’t worry about the camp being too formal though- as with all Music on the Hill camps, there is no conflict between learning about music and having fun! Students will be exposed to all the different ways people have chosen to sing together, through time and around the world. This camp is sure to foster your child’s love for singing and their appreciation for everything that their voice can do.
Chamber Music Camp 8-12 Years
This unique camp will introduce the students to the world of chamber music with master classical musicians, Enrique Reynosa and Anna Nizhegodtseva. Students will have the opportunity to “level up” on their violin and piano techniques and gain invaluable ensemble experience.
For violin- students need 2+ years of playing experience and need to have completed Suzuki book 1 (or another method)
For piano- students need 2+ years of playing experience and need to have completed Piano Adventures 2B (or lesson book 2 on another method).
