Is your child curious about trying a string instrument?
Can’t decide between Violin, Viola or Cello?
In this camp children are invited to explore the violin, viola and cello through pictures and games. Our Colourstrings instructors are specialists in teaching beginners, and know how to get kids excited about learning!
Beginners will become familiar with Colourstrings repertoire, basic techniques of holding and playing each of the string instruments and learn to play some simple songs.
A unique colour-coded system of notation will be introduced which simplifies the process of learning to read music. Based upon Kodaly teaching, Interactive music and movement games will introduce basic rhythm reading, solfege (do, re, mi), music theory and ear training skills.
More challenging musicianship games will be given to children with previous Colourstrings experience.
There will be a short string performance on the last day.
Rental instruments will be provided.
