Camp Structure


Music Makers Camp can be run by the school music director, school administrator, or parent volunteers.
Advanced high school music students can volunteer as subject experts under adult supervision. These high school students, known as Music Maker Young Professors during the camp, will earn community
service hours and valuable teaching and leadership experience.

The camp consists of up to nine stations in one large room or in separate locations. Each station focuses on a specific topic.

Camps include 8 curriculum areas with up to 3 levels each. Areas include musical symbols, note ID, sharps and flats, key signatures, rhythm and note/rest values, intervals, scales, chords.

Students move from one station to another at their own pace as they master the material.

Students take written tests on each topic when they are ready.

At the camp’s conclusion, there is an award ceremony where students receive certificates for topics they have mastered.
