Designed to introduce children to the world of sound, Summer Jam is an enriching, fun camp that offers hands-on experiences with instruments and introduces campers to sounds from around the world. Kids ages 4-8 learn through all of the senses as they explore music through movement, books, games, art and more!
After lunch and recess, campers return to the studio for free time and small group introductions to a different instrument each day: piano, guitar, violin, drums, and ukulele. While one group of campers has free time with games, crafts, and books, the others learn about the instrument of the day in a small group. Read about a sample day.
Each weekly session has a different focus.
Explore the world of symphonic music by being introduced to the four families of the orchestra: strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion.
Meet the sounds and rhythms of different continents and cultures, from Latin America and Europe, to Asia and Africa.
Meet the unique sounds of our own country this week where we visit different types of music from folk to musical theater, and jazz to rock and R&B.
