CYM Summer Camp Feature – Intro to Keyboard

One thing we hear from adults on a regular basis is “I wish I had learned to play the piano when I was young!” The ability to play the piano not only makes you popular at parties, but also provides wonderful brain development! Here are just a few of the benefits of piano study: 

  • Prevents Hearing Loss and Memory Loss (this is very new and exciting research!) 
  • Improved counting and math skills and overall school performance 
  • Exercising new language acquisition skills  
  • Improves reading comprehension 
  • Improves bilateral coordination 
  • Promotes listening acuity and aural memory 

Is your child at the age where he or she is ready for the application of early childhood concepts to an instrument? Or maybe you have just been thinking about starting your early elementary student on the piano! This camp is the perfect starting point.  

Let your child go on a keyboard adventure this summer to set the stage for music reading and performance! For children ages 6 through 8, this camp will use songs children love to sing while they explore the keyboard, using tonal patterns to build harmonies as they sing! Using multiple keyboards will make this a fun, safe environment which will foster cooperation with others! Drumming will help with beat awareness, and dancing will help with coordination and feeling the music, and all its elements, with our whole bodies. We will celebrate music from all over the world as we sing, dance, listen, and play! This is a joyful way to get a start on the piano. Students who come to the keyboard camp will be ready in the fall to continue in a group setting, in a class called Music Makers at the Keyboard, or to begin or continue private study on the piano or any instrument! 

This camp is taught by Ms Amy, who holds a master’s degree in piano pedagogy, and is a National Teacher Trainer for the Musikgarten curriculum.
