Music can be used to tell stories of all kinds. From folk songs to symphonic poems, music can be a powerful language to communicate a narrative. This year, our campers will explore composers who have told stories through their works. They also will learn ways of creating dramatic effects to tell a story at the piano. Campers will have the chance to tell a tale of their own by composing a piece that they will perform at the end of the week. They also will improve their own solo piece during daily master classes and play in a duet or trio, all featured in a recital on Friday. Campers also will participate in activities, such as ear-training, improvisation and movement, to further develop their musical skills.

The elementary and middle school camps run concurrently.
