Summer Camps Details

Kinderflute™ (Ages 5-7)

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 have a positive impact on the child`s learning. The motto of Kinderflute™ is “Stimulating exercise and learning through a loving and caring environment to generate new and creative experiences.”

Mini Music Makers (Ages 4-6)

Bursting with giggles, creativity, and melodies, this magical camp invites young maestros, ages 4-6, to explore the joy of music in a fun and vibrant setting. Through movement and music and learning disguised as games, students learn note-reading, rhythm-reading, and ear training all while trying out a variety of instruments including xylophones, recorders, piano, ukulele, and various percussion instruments. Running Monday-Friday, from 9:30-noon (including a snack break!) students work together to prepare familiar melodies as a group and learn music basics from interactive musical stories.

Raise Your Voice (Ages 7-13)

Do you like to sing? Do you want to learn new skills and make friends with others who like music? Join us for our Raise Your Voice Camp!

  • Sing pop, contemporary, and musical theatre songs
  • Learn to sing in a group
  • Develop your musical ears and reading skills

No prior experience required.

Kids Can Rock n’ Roll Camp (Ages 7-13)

Dive into the world of music and Rock ‘n’ Roll with our inclusive camp, welcoming all experience levels. Learn guitar basics, drumming essentials, and the art of creating electronic music. Beyond the music, our camp is not just about learning – it’s about having a blast! We’ll be playing games and enjoying a fun, interactive atmosphere.

To participate fully, bring your own guitar or rent one for an additional $15 at registration. Additionally, we recommend each student have an iPad/iPhone with the latest version of GarageBand loaded on it. Join us for a harmonious experience where passion meets learning. Unleash your creativity, discover your rhythm, and groove to the beat of your own musical journey!

Songwriting And Production (Ages 8-14)

The Songwriting and Production camp offers an introduction to the art and craft of songwriting and music production. Students will study common pop song structures and chord progressions to spark their musical creativity. Through a combination of theoretical concepts, practical exercises, and creative projects, students will gain an understanding of the songwriting and production process. Students may bring their own instruments or an iPad with GarageBand to write and record their songs.

No formal composition experience is required, but a willingness to experiment creatively is essential. Some basic music theory will be covered during the camp and some proficiency in playing a musical instrument or singing is welcome but not necessary.

Music Coding (Ages 6-10)

In this camp, participants will explore the exciting connection between music and coding via computer games! By building their own game piece by piece, participants will gain basic coding literacy and learn how music often fits into a bigger picture. This camp is perfect for creative minds!

Requirements: Bringing your own iPad or laptop is required. No coding or music experience is required.

Music for Young Violinists (Ages 6-8)

Children in this class will experience a fun-filled, high-energy approach to early music education on the violin. Campers will learn the fundamental elements of violin playing using the Suzuki Method–a popular method of music instruction for children ages three years old and up that 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.

Please bring a bag lunch.   Water will be provided.  No activities, though students can read from our children’s book shelf.
