I made a summer camp highlight video so my piano parents can see what their kids learned at camp. I thought I would share it with all of you as well.
This year I wanted to really focus on performance skills. These included: Conducting, Accompanying, Performance, Technique and then some fun creating iBands.
I used the following resources for this camp…
iPad Ensembles (In addition to using a couple of these ensembles, I also had students improvise. In addition I used regular existing music from PianoPronto.com to create an iPad ensemble)
Wii Music (We used the Mii Maestro Game where they practiced their conducting skills. So fun!)
When I first was planning this camp, I wasn’t sure how well what I had planned would work with all ages. I have students as young as 5 participating and as old as 18years old. The first group that participated was my “hurry out of town” kids. Which meant it would be a mix of ages. It turns out the mixed ages group ended up being a real nice group as most fell in the ages between 8-12 years. The other sessions were either K-5th or 6th and up. So it worked out well. Then for my K-5th groups I adapted a little bit by adding a little more rhythm activities for them. All in all I’m super pleased with how this camp went!
I hope you enjoy the video!
COMING SOON! A new incentive program that is unlike anything you have seen before! Stay tuned!
