Performing Music Camp

2014 Violin youth dominic pizz croppedThis will be a fun week of group music making for kids with at least 6 months experience playing bowed instruments.

Campers will warm up each day with tuning, singing, stretching, posture, scales and bow exercises, all carried out in a light-hearted manner.

There will be a big group where everyone plays together, and we’ll also break into instrument specific groups–violins in one room, cellos in another–to work on arrangements of folk songs for violin and cello ensembles and practice our parts for when we play in the big group. Music games will round out the day, and at the end of the week we’ll give a performance for family and friends.

After you’ve had fun learning about playing in a group you might enjoy the Bow-Dacious String Band Camp!
