Judson Summer Music Camps

April 30th, 2013

Received via email from an enthusiastic past-participant:

Fox Valley Music Camp{RE}Mix at Judson University

Monday, June 24th – Friday, June 28th

Overview

Established in 2006, The Fox Valley Music Camp at Judson University offers an enriching, fun-filled week of music-making for students in grades Kindergarten through High School.

Young students (K-2nd grade) come for a half-day camp and focus on music basics, play fun games, make crafts and sing songs. They enjoy performing on the stage in a group recital at the end of the week.

Elementary aged students (3rd-5th grades) explore music fundamentals, learn to play simple instruments like chimes and recorders and have the option to take private lessons if they are already studying an instrument. Campers prepare for a recital at the end of the week.

Older students (6th-12th grades) have 2 private lessons on their instrument of choice (or voice), participate in small ensembles and explore music theory/composition and history. Students elect either a Classical or Contemporary Worship Track. An IMEA Audition Prep program is available for all instrumentalists (9th -12th grades) intending to audition in the fall of 2013. A recital caps the week.

Faculty mini-concerts conclude each day, to which camper families are invited.
