We're jamming with Kathy! The ukulele is a fun and fast way to get to know a string instrument. You'll be rockin' in no time -- in just a few days, we'll learn how to strum and sing our way through some of your favorite three- and four-chord songs! Then, explore music through rhythm and movement, learning games, listening exercises, hands-on instrument discovery and more! Students will also develop choral skills and prepare a performance piece to play for family and friends at the end of the program.
Joni Parker-Roach is dedicated to giving students (ages 6+) an outlet for creative expression and instruction in a variety of media. Mediums include drawing (with graphite pencils, graphite-tint pencils, colored pencils, pen & ink, micron/sharpie pens, Chinese Brush Art, Calligraphy and Zentangle Inspired Art) and painting (including, watercolor, acrylic and pastel painting). All materials used are artist-grade so that the student can learn and achieve quite wonderful work. Students will create in a supportive environment where they are 'the boss' and have final say in the direction their work is going. Joni will give them options and techniques to achieve their desired outcome of their work of art but they make the decision if they want to implement those suggestions. There will be a variety of music played to stimulate different feelings when creating a visual piece.
In this fun, exciting, energetic introduction to dance, we will discover how different types of music influence different styles of dance and learn basics in hip hop, jazz, ballet, musical theater, contemporary, and lyrical styles.
We'll explore creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving skills as students create a Rock Band with code! Compose your own music, program an on-screen piano to play to play different notes, and even record yourself singing a song and code your actor to sing it! With music and coding, the possibilities are endless!
With four of the area's favorite creative learning centers (Indian Hill Music, NOA Gallery, Harvard Academy of Dance, and Code Wiz) collaborating under one roof, this four-day vacation program is the perfect way to explore your child's creative interests and get imagination flowing.Do I need to buy a ukulele?
