This session is for students with NO EXPERIENCE playing an instrument and/or reading music. These students will have an opportunity to learn one of 6 instruments.
Students will select an instrument with guidance from the director and that will be their instrument for 5 days.
We will provide the instrument, the necessary accessories for that instrument, and the music book. Students will learn the following during the 5 days:
How to assemble and disassemble their instruments
How to carry and hold their instrument
Proper breathing techniques required for playing instruments
How to get a sound on their particular instrument
First 5 notes
Basic music theory such as rhythms and basic musical terms required to read music
How to play together as a group
Students will borrow the instrument and book for the entire 5 days. After each day of camp your student can take the instrument and music book home to practice. All equipment must be returned on the last day of camp.
*This is a great opportunity for students to get a feel for band so they can consider joining their school band class in the future.
