Our Music program allows campers to learn, play, move and shake! Campers not only learn choral singing, but also engage in musical activities, such as drumming, in small groups to ensure individual opportunity. The math of musical notation and the literature of lyrics combine to create a wonderful experience as campers learn different styles from music around the world. The program culminates in a fun musical performance for the campers’ families and friends at the close of camp on Family Night .
“Musicians acquire and continuously practice a variety of complex motor, auditory, and multimodal skills (eg. translating visually perceived musical symbols into motor commands while simultaneously monitoring instrumental output and receiving multi-sensory feedback). Research has demonstrated that music training in children results in long-term enhancement of visual-spatial, verbal, and mathematical performance.” ~ Gottfried Schlaug, in The Effects of Musical Training on a Child’s Brain and Cognitive Development
