Summer Camp 2017
Campers at Clement Arts Music Camp will discover the joy of music through the exploration of instruments and voice! Through learning to play instruments, creative play, movement, dance, and song students will gain experience with all of the fundamentals of music. Campers will walk away from this week-long session with a foundation in music that will prepare them for success in their future musical endeavors. No musical experience necessary!
Lower elementary aged campers will play pitched percussion instruments such as Boomwackers, hand bells, glockenspiels, xylophones, and unpitched percussion such as hand drums, maracas, shakers, triangles, bongos, and more! They will learn group pieces to perform by the end of the week!
Upper grade elementary and middle school campers will have the fun opportunity to play the bucket drum and learn the basics of drumming. We will cover some basic stick technique and then learn to work together some play some fun grooves! By the end of the week, we will learn a group piece and play together. They will also explore pitched percussion with glockenspiels and xylophones, and learn the basics of the soprano recorder!
Campers of all ages will have the opportunity to hear guest musicians, and they will end each day using their own instrument – their voice – in choir rehearsal where they will learn singing techniques and (for upper grade students) harmonization!
Proceeds from camp help support local adoption and foster care.
Clement Kids classes are open to all children in the community.
