Special percussion workshops, vocal workshops, songwriting workshops and ukulele group lessons are available to all campers. Small group and one-on-one instruction in individual instruments are available to students who sign up for a primary instrument and are able to bring their own instrument. Please feel free to contact us if your child needs an instrument. We do have a handful of loaner instruments that are available to students on a first come first serve basis.
One-on-one sessions and group practice sessions for individual instruments help musicians focus on instrumental technique while mastering tone, timing, and other challenging aspects of the repertoire. Ensemble opportunities and performance opportunities will be a key focus of the camp.
Students choose from electives such as music theory, composition, jazz improvisation, and instrumental technique. The Big Island Summer Camp curriculum is rich and challenging, but campers still enjoy plenty of time for relaxing and supervised recreation.
A final performance which is open to parents and the public is scheduled for the final day of camp.
