TESTIMONIALS

Our children loved Kathy’s Kindermusic Summer Camp! Kathy inspired my 8 year old son to want to take ukulele lessons and my 4 year old daughter loved singing and dancing in her class. My son actually asked if Kathy could be his school teacher. I told him ” In a perfect world that could happen.” Kathy was so sweet and kind while teaching them all about different cultures. She really empowered my son to feel like a leader because of her approach to empowering each child. It was the most beautiful educational experiences I have ever witnessed. We can’t wait to see Kathy next summer!

~TELL ME A TALE: For centuries and all around the world, children have loved to snuggle, laugh, sing and hear their old classic tales told again and again, never tiring of them! TELL ME A TALE and Teacher Kathy keeps these literary traditions alive, bringing literature to life through music, drumming, dance, art, singing, and providing a rich all-around learning experience your child will not forget. We take your child on a musical trip to Malaysia, India, Africa, Europe, and N. America…Through this storytelling camp, your child steps into the delightful world of folktales from each country (and that culture’s music) by singing, exploring ensemble development, dancing, playing games and helping them develop a better sense of rhythmic awareness, focused listening, and drama skills. Each day we explore a new country with Kathy & Leah.

~SNAZZY JAZZY: Find your GROOVE. Swing and Dance. Sing the Blues. Let your child get an extra helping of musical learning with some jazz music, songs and dances in the mix. In camp, your child will use stories and other activities to learn to observe and enjoy Jazz styles of music…And a little keyboarding improvisation and ukulele to add to the jazzy fun! with Kathy

~SING A DISNEY MUSICAL-JUNGLE BOOK!: Sing the songs from the original Disney film, watch the original movie, do art projects from the jungle, perform songs with percussion instruments as an ensemble, do creative movement from the story. Camp inspired by the expert guidance of Vocal, Piano and Kindermusik Teacher, Sapna Shah.  Using the creative and imagination of the students together, they sing songs and play instruments also! An energetic camp for your child to harness their vocal power and simple acting skills

Children can more easily learn and practice singing on pitch when their repertoire includes songs that have a limited range, common rhythmic and melodic patterns, and are written in the pentatonic scale. We begin camp with the joyful journey of learning to sing with the fundamental interval, sol-mi…then adding on to sol-la-mi, etc. Successful experiences lead to confidence…and confidence leads to more singing!

Art is a part of this camp to make props for our Singing Musical presentation at the end of the week
