  • Week 3 Description
  • Camp Schedule
Have you ever wanted to travel the world? Then grab your passport and join us on a musical vacation that will explore different cultures and music styles from around the world. We will explore drums from Africa, violins and pianos from Italy, ukuleles from Hawaii, flamenco guitars from Spain, tin whistles and bagpipes from Ireland, and—the oldest known instruments—flutes from India & China, and more! Each student will receive a passport and get to add to it with every culture we study. On their “travels”, participants will learn songs like “Kookaburra”, “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”, “On The Road Again”, and more! An end of camp performance will highlight our musical tour of instruments, songs, and cultural practices.
Around The World is the 3rd of 4 summer camps offer by The Shedd Institute as a part of its 2019 Summer SongFest program for kids. Read more...
Each morning begins with a “warm up”, followed by learning the songs for the week’s theme. They will then get to learn about and play an instrument that has to do with the week’s theme. After a snack the campers will either get a chance to make their very own instrument or get dance instruction based on the theme. The campers end the day with a song circle to prepare them for their performance on Friday:
