Flexible and Fun
Each day of Daily Music Camp begins with a sing-along bringing together all of the camp and workshop participants as well as the camp leaders. The sing-along features children's favorites like "Down By the Bay" along with kid-friendly pop hits such as "I Feel Good" by James Brown. We even have original music created by our own teachers - these are enjoyed year after year.
After the sing-along, children enjoy a teacher-led activity relating to the day's theme. Sometimes children are learning about music, and sometimes they are learning about the world through music. In this way, we are able to engage children's natural curiosity and connect their musical experiences to their daily lives.
The children enjoy a snack at mid-morning, followed by another theme-related activity such as a craft, a movement activity, or a game. Throughout the day, children will get the chance to play musical instruments, including at least one "grown-up" instrument.
Lunch comes at noon, followed by another theme-related activity. The day closes with another gathering. This time, in addition to singing songs together, our youngest campers will enjoy impromptu performances by the workshop participants as they share the work they did that day. Seeing the older children perform is very inspiring to the children in Daily Music Camp!
