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.
Rudiments 3: Intervals – a study of intervals and minor scales.
Rudiments 4: Chords – a study of triads, triad inversions, and dominant seventh chords.

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 13. 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.

Basics of Music

Basics of Music: Teaches the basics of notation and sight singing, paced for beginners. This class is intended for part-time students who want to make sure they get a solid grounding in the basics of music and who just want to take that class, or that class and a choir.

This class will only run if at least eight students sign up for it.

Leading Congregational Worship

This class examines essential components of leading congregational worship. It teaches practices of song leading and an understanding of leading in worship. Things you may learn are how to plan your worship, communicate musical ideas clearly, and use your hymnal. As this class specifically trains congregational leaders, it is open only to men.

Congregational Workshop

This workshop involves practicing singing skills as a congregation. It 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.

Class Voice

An introduction to the concepts and practices of healthy tension-free singing. Areas of study will include developing controlled breathing, phonation that is neither pressed nor breathy, focused resonance, and crisp articulation. Students will sing for, analyze, and critique each other.

Choral Gesture

The conducting gesture is the primary means of communication with and through the choir. A brief review includes conducting patterns for complex and irregular meter, free rhythms and subdivided beats. The primary focus includes developing additional technical and interpretive aspects of conducting, and exploring the role of a conductor in evoking both sound and meaning from the choir. Prerequisite: a basic working knowledge of conducting including common beat patterns, simple and compound meter, and basic gesture-related communication (tempo, dynamics, etc.).

Elementary Ed

How can learning music be fun? Age-appropriate activities, folk songs, and games taught with the Kodaly method make class engaging. Adult students will role-play as grade-school students, participate in discussions, and receive tips for lesson planning. You are encouraged to observe Children’s Skills classes (2:30-3:30).

Elementary Ed 1 (Grades 1-3): Rhythm up to Eighth note pairs, Tie and slur, Conducting patterns of 2 & 3. Melodic Concepts including pentatonic scale, aural and visual pitch identification

Elementary Ed 2 (Grades 4-6): Rhythm up to dotted quarter/eighth pairs, prep beat, simple & compound meter. Melodic Concepts up to major & minor scales, absolute pitches on treble clef.

Chapel

Chapel is both a time of worship and a time to strengthen your ability to worship in singing.

In chapel, we reflect on the meaning of worship as it is taught in Scripture and we respond to God in love and obedience. At the same time we practice worshiping God. Chapels help to orient the focus of camp around what really matters: God’s presence and his kingdom.

These sessions are open to the public – all are welcome!
