Garage Band Camp

Friday, May 28, 2021 by Betsy Breaker | Events

Grungy garage tools or musical instruments? Both, when you have a Garage Band!
Each musician will bring home a pair of drum sticks and a 5-gallon bucket – all which they will decorate to be as uniquely their own. We will also explore timbre and various percussion “instruments” to make our rhythm ensembles: scrapers, shakers, cymbals and cowbells plus different sizes of drums. I will be raiding our shop for clean, safe instruments! I especially can’t wait to hear the scoop shovel solo.😎
During our four 1-hour-long camps we will use our ears and eyes to hear and see rhythms we will play in unison starting with just with our buckets. As we progress we will add more complex and varied rhythms and creative instruments to develop full rhythm ensembles!
Camp will be held in our home garage and yard. Four Thursdays in July, July 8-29. Ages 5-8 will meet from 1-2pm and ages 9+ will meet from 2:15-3:15pm. The cost for the four weeks is $70 due at registration. Registration is limited to 6 campers per age group but more groups can be added if needed.
Registration will close July 1st.
