Online: Summer Music Project (Aug.)

$154

with Megan Freitas

Calendar Aug 17, 2020 at 12 pm, runs for 1 week

Your kids will set their creativity free with our Summer Music Project. They’ll work with a small group of their peers to write and record their very own music and comedy TV show from the comfort and safety of home. Activities will include writing stories and skits, writing and performing songs, creating artwork, and recording their own performances to create a unique video.

Age: 8 - 11

Two sessions:

  • Week of July 20th
  • Week of August 17th
  • Monday through Friday, 12 pm to 2 pm each day

What will campers do?

The program is based on a TV show framework, including an opening theme song, skits, commercials, and a big ending. These elements will be developed using a storyline about a band facing adversity and how they rise to the challenge and triumph. Each day, the campers will collaborate on the script, rehearse the music, and film the TV show via Zoom.

What equipment do we need?

Students will need to have access to a computer or tablet, Internet access, and the Zoom video conferencing platform (which is available for free). Headphones or earbuds will be needed for portions of the class, as well.

What instrument do we need?

Your child will need a musical instrument. Keyboard and pianos (in tune), drums, and stringed instruments work very well. If the child will be using a stringed instrument, someone at home will need to be able to tune it before each class meeting. If you need to purchase an instrument, a simple, inexpensive 61-key keyboard in the $45 to $60 range will work just fine. They can be found at many retailers. If you would like a specific reference or are interested in a higher quality instrument, just let us know!

What if my child can’t play an instrument?

This camp is designed to accommodate children with varying levels of musical ability. Even if your child has not played an instrument before, we can simplify their part and get them participating.

Is parental supervision required?

NO! The only parental involvement will be on the last day when parents will need to record some additional video with their child for the TV show.

KidzRock Online Camp (Aug)

$74

with Nick Poss

Calendar Aug 24, 2020 at 12 pm

The fun of playing in a band from the comfort of home! Our KidzRock Online Camp introduces kids to the fundamentals of making music in a fast-paced online class. Kids will be playing from the first day and will also get to work as a team to write their very own song. At the end of the week, students will record themselves singing and playing to produce an original music video. 

Ages: 6 to 8

Meets Monday through Friday for 45 min. Per day

  • 12 pm to 12:45 pm
  • Two sessions: Starting July 27th or Aug. 24th

Does my child need to have previous musical experience?

No! KidzRock is designed to be accessible to students who have never played an instrument. Students who are already in lessons will benefit from new musical ideas and working in a group.

What will students do in class?

Students will spend time developing fundamental skills, like: reading and performing rhythms, playing in time with others, basic musical notation, and other concepts. At the end of the session, we will record a performance to create a music video to share with everyone. Students will also have the opportunity to record additional video at home to contribute.

What instrument do we need?

Your child will need either a keyboard, piano, or drum kit to participate. If you need to purchase an instrument, a simple, inexpensive 61-key keyboard  in the $45 to $60 range will work just fine. They can be found at many retailers. If you would like a specific reference or are interested in a higher quality instrument, just let us know! 

Is parental supervision required?

Just a little. You’ll need to help at the beginning of the very first session to make things are working well. Then, on the last day, the kids may need a little extra help recording themselves singing and playing for the video. Otherwise, no parental supervision is needed during the class (unless there is a technical issue that requires some extra help.)
