Online School Holiday Music Camps

Week 1: Tuesday 14th - Friday 17th April (4 day program)

Week 2: Monday 20th - Friday 24th April (5 day program)

Big Music are the School Holiday Music Camp experts, and despite Covid-19 putting our regular camps on hold, the Show must go on!

So for the April School Holidays, we have developed a sensational new Online Live & Interactive Music Camp for Kids AGED 5 to 12.

No musical experience, or instrument, is required for the Online Camp. The emphasis is on fun, creative musical activities including songwriting, singing and electronic music production. 

 

HOW DO THE ONLINE CAMPS WORK?

 

  • Online Camps run for 2 hours each day with the choice of morning (10am-12noon) or afternoon (1pm-3pm) sessions. 

  • Online session links and instructions on how to connect to each session will be sent to you prior to the camp.  

  • Kids just need a quiet space and a device (eg. computer or tablet) with internet access and Zoom. We will also send a link to download the free Soundtrap app for the Making Music sessions.  

  • A set of headphones makes it easier to hear the coach clearly. 

  • Kids will rotate through 3 virtual classrooms with 3 different coaches at 35 minute intervals, with 5 minute breaks in between - see the Daily Program below.

  • The maximum online class size is 6 kids with 1  coach. We will endeavour to group kids by age categories.  

  • At the end of each session our coaches will set the kids up with additional fun, creative activities they can carry on with until the next day.

Further Information for Parents

The Camp Program is designed so that minimal parental involvement or supervision is required, other than to get Zoom set up and switch Zoom links to the next coach at 35 minute intervals, while the kids take a short break from their screens.  

If you would like to have more than one child participate then please make sure they each have their own device.  An additional booking fee is required for each child.

​For the Garageband session a second device (ideally a tablet or computer) is required - one for Zoom, one with Garageband app installed (free from the app store).
