The Science of Music

Ages 8-14

Location: Brattleboro Music Center
Mon-Fri, July 15-19, 10 am – 12 pm

Led by Heather Sommerlad

How does music work? How do we make sound, and what happens when we put those sounds together? This week long, age appropriate science camp will explore these questions and more through a series of fun, hands-on activities. We will discuss how sound is created, observe how traditional instruments work, and then apply this knowledge toward making our own. By the end of the week, each child will have their own handmade instruments to take home and explore–But not before we give our family and friends a small concert on them!

C’mon, it’s not Music Theory!

Beginning Music Theory, Ages 8-14

Location: Brattleboro Music Center

Mon-Fri, July 8-12, 10 am – 12 pm

Led by Heather Sommerlad

Are you learning to play an instrument, but don’t have a clue what a key signature is? Do you struggle with rhythm, note names, or clefs? Do the words diatonic and chromatic sound like rocket science to you, or like silly names for a couple of mischievous robots?

 

If so, this week-long, beginner level camp is for you! We will start with the very basics of music theory, and work our way up, using games and body movement to gain better understanding. We’ll play major scale hopscotch. Rhythm and melodic bingo. A game of “Who Left Their Sheet Music on the Bus,” Clue, where we’ll decipher the names of people and places through music. By the end of the week, we’ll know enough to go on a diatonic chord progression treasure hunt. And who knows? Maybe the whole note dollars you find will buy you a prize!
