The summer camp experience carries into our school-year program for young people grades 2-7 and alumni interested in continuing with us for extended learning opportunities. We gather at 6:30 for a light supper followed by choral sessions with Michael Burkhardt (Dr. B to our kids) and integrated learning with handbells, African drumming and Orff. No previous experience necessary, just an interest in music. Please let us know you are coming by September 15 so Dr. B can assemble to best faculty for best multi-dimensional learning environment.
The four-day camp runs daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for campers (grades 2-7) with a special experience for camp alumni from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (grade 8 and above). Save the dates and stay tuned for registration information.
After camp 2014, director Michael Burkhardt put the finishing touches on "Read 'n Ring", a teaching resource he wrote to share techniques developed for hearts, hands and voices. In May 2015, music publisher, J.W. Pepper, selected "Read 'n Ring" for its Editor's Choice Award. They called it a revolutionary approach to teaching music literacy. How fun is that?
