Developing Children, Training Teachers, and Strengthening The Global Community Through the Power of Music
Music Camp is a dynamic week of music rehearsals and classes for children. A day at camp includes choir for all children. Repertoire ranges from that of the great masters—Haydn, Mozart, and Handel—to national music, international music, contemporary anthems, and spirituals. The children sing in multiple languages. In addition, each child has two electives. Classes are offered in percussion instruments, guitar, violin, cello, handchimes, handbells, recorder, clarinet, and musical games.
MCI believes that instrumental ensembles provide the opportunity for children to work both independently and collectively, and develop both personal discipline and the joy of shared success. The week culminates with a concert attended by parents, friends, educators, cultural leaders and entire communities.
Many children actually hold an instrument for the first time.
What is even more exciting than making beautiful music, is making it happen! Music Camp International makes it happen!
