Piano Camp I
June 11 - 16, 2017
Piano I camp is for the middle school piano student, 5th-8th grade, with at least one year of keyboard training. The camp is designed to accommodate students at all levels from beginner to advanced. Throughout the week each student will receive a minimum of three private lessons from one of our experienced piano faculty members. There will be a variety of daily classes including music history, music theory, masterclasses and guest artist performances. Each student will be paired with another piano camper of similar skill level to collaborate on a duet. The duet music will be sent out prior to camp so students will have the opportunity to work on their music before arriving at camp. The week with conclude with a final concert where students will perform their solo pieces (and possibly duets, if time permits).
Each student will be expected to bring:
A polished piano solo to perform on the final concert
A working piece
A new piece the student would like to learn
Students should consult with their private teachers for appropriate pieces to fit these categories. Sight-reading books are recommended, but not required.
