This class approaches theory from a refreshingly different perspective. Students will be challenged to use their theory knowledge to:
CREATE chord/rhythm charts from recordings
LEARN to read and perform from chord charts
IMPROVE their internal rhythm through the use of eurythmics (body rhythm)
The result is a clearer understanding of the purpose/application of music theory in our everyday music-making.
There will be at least 2 class-levels, divided by experience. Classes will be determined on the first day of camp, following a short assessment.
Put away all scores, notebooks, and sheet music! In these fun workshops, students will create music through improvisation, games, storytelling, and a few other fun techniques. No improvisation experience? We’ll walk you through! Are you an experienced improviser? You will be challenged to expand your toolbox!
Students will have a chance to receive personal instruction directly from Dr. Hamm, in both private lessons and masterclasses. Students should bring at least three pieces to work on, including something ready for performance.
Students will participate in outreach performances at senior care centers around the Comox Valley, in addition to presenting a final recital (featuring solo & chamber music).
