2022 MASTERY Summer Camps

Registration: Through UBC Camps. Watch for registration to open in 2022.

Kinderflute™

Some spots are still available as of May 30th.

Kinderflute™ is a unique program not offered elsewhere in Vancouver. The camp supports children’s musical development using the flute. Among other skills taught, campers will learn note reading, proper breathing techniques, and rhythm.

The instructor, Mikyla Jensen, is the only certified Kinderflute™ teacher in Vancouver. The Kinderflute™ teaching techniques are based on research in neurogenesis, in which movement together with music is utilized to positively impact the child’s learning. The motto of Kinderfute™ is “Stimulating exercise and learning through a loving and caring environment, to generate new and creative experiences.”

Campers will learn the fundamental elements of violin playing using the Suzuki Method (a popular method of music instruction for children ages three and up which emphasizes ear training and encourages motivation and positive experiences).

Some concepts covered during the week include basic posture, bow and violin holds, musical terminology, improvisation, expression, and five twinkle rhythms as well as exposure to a variety of classic musical examples in a “music appreciation” format.

Required Instrument: A violin is required for participation. This can be rented for the week for $15 at the time of registration.
