GroovyGlee: Sing Your Heart Out!

Gr. 4-6  (week 2)

GroovyGlee is the perfect camp for Elementary age children who love to sing and want to find their inner pop star! This camp is a funky and fun way forstudents to develop singing skills, and delve into the wonderful world of performance in a low press ure environment. Kids take the initiative by choosing pop songs they want to learn, as they have fun singing along to cool arrangements accompanied by the talented teachers accompaniment on guitar and keys!

Class Includes: Each week we will warm up or voices and our bodies with vocal and movement exercises, focusing on singing pitches accurately and moving to the beat. Groovy Glee is an introduction to part singing, teaching the children to learn to sing one thing while someone next to them sings something else. We will practice this skill first by singing rounds and ostinatos, and then, if kids are ready, we can begin to learn to sing songs in two-part harmony as a chorus. Throughout the week, while building all of these skills, students learn songs of various styles, such as: pop, folk, gospel, rock, musical theater, and incorporate simple choreography.

Instruments include: Children may occasionally learn to accompany the songs playing percussion instruments, such as: tambourines, drums, claves, or shaker eggs.  The teacher leads the class playing guitar and piano, so kids get to sing with a band!

In GroovyGlee kids gain confidence behind the mic & as pop stars,  sing their heart out!
