Meet the Instruments
Designed for 4-, 5-, and 6-year-olds who are almost ready to start lessons, this class will get your child acquainted with the world of instruments. Students will get together in person to:
where does the camp meet?
The class will take place in person at ChiME’s West Town facility.
what will students learn?
Students will learn to recognize and name instruments and will discuss correct ways to play them. They will practice keeping a steady beat and echo-playing rhythms. They will explore melodic contour, experience high and low sounds, and discover expressive qualities, including dynamics and tempo. They will learn to take beautiful bows, stand/sit in rest position, and echo clap/play all Suzuki Twinkle rhythms on percussion instruments (optional instrument bucket packs are available for purchase) in preparation for private instrument lessons.
WHAT will CHILDREN DO?
Each day of camp will consist of musical warms ups (beat, rhythm, melody), movement activities, instrument demos and exploration, listening, lots of imitation, and games. A small, pre-packaged, nut-free snack will be provided.
