Music Camps 2017 – Two Great Options!

Digital Music Video Camp

We’re talking bonafide rockstar music videos! This is where it all begins. Picture this- your kid stars as the musician, choreographer AND producer in their very own, digitally-produced, full-feature music video. Cool, huh?

Taught by Tierra Linda’s innovative, award-winning band director, Joe Murphy, this camp simulates a whole music creation studio where kids learn to record music digitally using live and software-generated instruments. They learn best practices of form and composition to enable them to write a quality piece of music.

Once they create the audio portion, the second half of camp is dedicated to the design and technical production of the video. They will create and write their own storyboard, select the location of their shoot, record the action, then bring it all into the computer to digitally align their music with the key points of action in their video. Sometimes the kids turn these into commercials, instructional videos or simply their own artistic expression.

Using GarageBand, Apple’s whole music creation studio, this Music Video Camp introduces real world technology, audio engineering, music composition, visual design, video composition and final post-production of a music video accompanied by their own music.

This camp is open to participants age 8-92. The camp runs from July 31 – Aug. 4th from 9am – 4pm. Snacks will be provided but campers need to provide their own lunch.

Camp Dates: July 31 – August 4, 2017.

LETS GET BACK TO BAND!

This week is all about the kids reviving and refreshing their interactions with their instrument to get back into shape before school starts up again. In case they didn`t get in enough practice hours during the summer, they can jump start their fall semester with a week of invigorating and challenging instruction from Tierra Linda’s award-winning band director, Joe Murphy.

Each day begins with morning warm-ups, sectionals and small group instruction. Individual practice time is also scheduled to ensure each can focus on their specific needs and skill level. Afternoons consist of a percussion ensemble where the kids can discover and play different percussion instruments. Then at the end of the week, the whole band class and any small ensembles who feel they’re ready will perform in a concert on Friday for parents/guardians!

As an elective lunchtime activity, we dabble in Apple`s music studio software, GarageBand, where they learn some fundamentals on how to record and produce their own music.

The camp is open to participants age 10-16. Each participant requires at least 1 year of experience playing on their instrument. Levels of players will vary, so parts will be altered to fit the needs and skills of each player in the camp. The camp runs from August 7-11 from 9am-4pm. Snacks will be provided. Lunch is NOT provided.
