Conservatory for Kids Camp Series

The CMC Decatur American Roots & Folk Music Day Camp is part of our Conservatory for Kids Camp Series. Conservatory for Kids camps are suitable for both beginners and more advanced students.  Depending on the student's background, the camps introduce or deepen a student's familiarity with a musical style or tradition.During the camps, each student meets one-on-one or in small groups with a primary studio instructor for a 30- to 45-minute lesson on an instrument of choice or for vocal coaching.  Students sing, drum, and also study notation, theory, and composition or song-writing through creatively designed and fun hands on classes, activities, and projects.  Arts and crafts activities focus on music-related art and building primitive instruments reflective of the style or tradition.   Faculty and guest performers also entertain and dazzle campers.  Like all Conservatory for Kids camps, the American Roots & Folk Music Camp will include ample break time and work on camp projects outdoors around and nearby the Center to meet the developmental needs of the enrolled children.
