Course Description: Looking for a summer music camp near Charlotte, NC with high educational impact? This course delivers on both fun AND critical thinking! The art of composing is a highly skilled endeavor that comes alive when kids learn how to manipulate the basic musical elements to complement the conventions of music theory. This 4-day course was designed entirely by Lisa with the goal of being fun and relatable for young children. Perfect for the child who loves music, science, and hands-on participation, this course immerses students in the theory and applied practice of composing music via various modalities. Both improvisation and conventional notation will be explored; students will manipulate melodic intervals, rhythm combinations, tempo, timbre, and form. In a highly organized and process-oriented progression, they will experiment with various aspects of composing, approaching it like an engineer would the building process. Children will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to work within age-appropriate parameters to create their own patterns, melodies, and forms through a variety of fun games and activities, using a wide selection of pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. Refund Policy: All sales are final. No refunds can be given for cancelled bookings or missed sessions, regardless of reason.
