Classes

Rudiments

Rudiments 1: Notation – a study of the elements of basic notation, simple time signatures, note and rest values, and accidentals.
Rudiments 2:
Scales & Keys – a study of major scales, major key signatures, and compound time signatures. If you sign up for Rudiments 2, you will receive a placement test to make sure you are in the right class.

Sight Singing

Sight Singing aims to help you read new music. Students learn various tips to help in sight reading, and have opportunities to practice skills through class exercises.

Sight-Singing is divided into Levels 12. You should choose the Sight Singing level that corresponds to your Rudiments class level. If at camp you find this is too high or low for you, you can switch classes.

Leading Group Singing

This course is an introduction to basic elements of leading group singing. It provides a foundation and skills development applicable to both congregational song leading and choral conducting, while highlighting some uniqueness of both. Students will learn to lead with clarity, interpretive sensitivity, and appropriate command. Participants will conduct hymnbook-level music in class for instructor and peer review. Both men and women are welcome.

Congregational Workshops

These workshops involve practicing singing skills as a congregation. They will strengthen your congregation’s singing ability while introducing important musical concepts and hymn book skills that will help grow your church singing. All students will attend congregational workshops, which are also open to the public.


Join the choir and experience the joy of singing in a group.
Students say it’s their favorite part of camp! Choir is a fun way to put the things you’re learning in class into practice.

Chapel

 

In chapel we explore God, music, and worship. We consider how the Bible teaches us to think about the questions surrounding music and worship, and how to respond to God in love and obedience.
