This camp is a fun, safe and educational camp for children aged between 5 and 10 years, to nurture a love of music and learn about music literacy and concepts through movement, music games and singing! You can leave them for an afternoon break safe in the knowledge that they are having fun and being well taken care of.
The activities include moving to different kinds of music using simple props like balloons or bubbles, from Classical to Ethnic styles; making and playing with simple instruments; making puppets; learning songs and stories and for the older children an introduction to different instruments and the life stories of the great composers. Music classes use fun activities to teach all elements of music. The school is well equipped with resources such as pitched bells, lots of colourful percussion instruments, crawling tubes and hula hoops.
