9:00am Greeting (10-15 minutes)
Each day starts with team-building activities so that every child feels welcomed and ready for the day.
9:15am Warm-ups (10-15 minutes)
Warm-ups are designed to prepare the body for healthy singing and include posture, breath, and singing techniques.
9:30am Group rehearsal (45 minutes)
Group Rehearsal is the bulk of the work. This is when we learn our songs and prepare for the performance.
10:15am Music game break (10 minutes)
After rehearsal, kids will unwind with a group music game. These games are low-stress and lots of fun!
10:30am Rhythm/solfege reading workshop (15 minutes)
At this point, kids will learn how to use rhythmic and solfege tools to read and understand music. No music-reading experience necessary!
10:45am choreography/dance (45 minutes)
Lisa takes over here! Kids will learn choreographed dances for each of the songs they sing in rehearsal.
11:30am lunch/snack time (20 minutes)
After a long day of music, it's time to relax and refuel. Lunches and snacks must be brought from home, food is not provided at the camp.
11:55am closing activities (30 minutes)
Closing activities are designed so that kids go home with a smile on their faces. Activities may include singing simple folk songs, simple yoga and stretching, and listening activities.
The Junior Choir is a great way for kids to get a sense for what being in a children's choir is all about! Kids learn basic choral singing skills, as well as musical skills that can be used outside of choir in music class or piano lessons.
