Summer Music Camp - PASADENA: June (Mon-Fri) Grades K-6th

Summary: On Monday June 24th we will go for a field trip to Bandrika Studios, scoring stage to see unique, rare instruments that have been used for film and television. The center piece of the studio is a restored 1928 Wurlitzer Theater Organ (pipe organ) that lived at 20th Cenntury Fox Studios from 1928 to 1998. The organ has been used by composers such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and more.


In this music camp we will do music arts and crafts. Make music themed calendars, postcards, necklaces, bracelets. Bring your own instrument and play/sing with us in the park! We will also learn to play songs on the recorder, and lap harp. We will be listening baroque, romantic, classical music and learning about music compositions such as operas, operettas, and musicals. In addition, we will play educational music games.
