Online School Holiday Music Workshops

Week 1: Monday 20th Sep - Friday 24th Sep 
Week 2: Monday 27th Sep - Friday 1st Oct

Despite Covid-19 putting our regular camps on hold, the Show must go on!

So for the Spring School Holidays, we are offering Online Live & Interactive Music Workshops for Kids AGED 8 to 12.

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

 

HOW DO THE ONLINE WORKSHOPS WORK?

 

  • Online Workshops run for 2 hours each day: 10am-12noon.

  • 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 the sessions set up (using the Zoom links we will send you) and switching to the next session / coach at 35 minute intervals, while the kids take a short break from their screens.  

For the "Making Music" class kids will need a free music education app called "Soundtrap" loaded on their computer - we will send you an invitation code prior to the first session.  

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, and a separate email account for Soundtrap, is required for each child.

"My children loved the music camp and asked me straight after if they could do it again. They have been singing the songs that they learnt at the camp in the car."  - Juliette
