CMC’s Musical Discovery Camp introduces kids to the world of musical sounds and the joys of making music together. Previous experience singing or playing an instrument is welcome but not required.  This year the camp’s curriculum focuses on musical styles from the Caribbean, Mexican and African-American traditions. Students will learn songs, rhythms, musical games, and instrumental techniques, as well as learn about the history and cultural background of a variety of musical genres from these traditions. The week’s activities will include singing, rhythm work, introduction to guitar and percussion, and ensemble work, where students will learn about dynamics, sound quality, listening and playing at the same time, staying in rhythm, and following the conductor. At the end of the week, students will share their work in an informal performance.Ages: 8-12Instruments: Students will play instruments provided by the instructorsStyles of music studied: Contemporary, Latin, Caribbean, African-AmericanPrerequisites: Previous experience singing or playing an instrument is welcome but not required
