All campers sing in the Shaw Camp Choir and perform with faculty and staff as a 320+ voice choir during the Closing Ceremony.
Campers choose from a variety of music and non-music electives:
Beginning Piano: Learn to play piano and study the basics of reading the grand staff; learn new melodies and how to accompany tunes you already know.
Brass Choir: If you play trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, or tuba, you will enjoy playing music specifically written for brass.
Bucket Brigade: An introduction to percussion by using various kinds of buckets. You will learn about ensemble playing and improvisation while exploring the many sounds buckets can make. No experience needed.
Cartoon Music: Watching famous cartoons is a perfect way to learn about classical music and the composers who created it. It's also a lot of fun.
Chamber Music: Advanced Wind, String, and Piano students will be grouped into trios and quartets to perform music by the masters!
Clarinet Choir: Perform exclusively with other clarinet-playing campers! Learn to develop sight-reading skills on classical and pop music and play the "colorful" clarinets: E-flat Soprano, Alto and Bass, and maybe a few more!
Classical Improvisation: Create classical music as you go and learn to expand your creative instincts, whatever your instrument or voice part. Don't worry if you have never improvised before - that makes you a perfect candidate for the class.
Conducting: You will learn basic conducting techniques, score reading, and how feel a little like your band, choir, or orchestra teacher.
Flute Choir: Join other camp flutists in one ensemble playing great music just for flute!
Group Guitar: Group guitar classes require no prior instruction, but guitarists are separated into classes according to ability so experienced students can move along quickly.
Handbells for Beginners: This is for those campers who have never experienced handbells. You will learn about the instruments and how to work together as a team to produce exceptional sounds. No experience is necessary.
Handbells Rock-n-Roll Ringers: This is for campers who have some experience on handbells. It's not your run-of-the-mill handbell choir! Rock out to some of your favorite pop tunes as you learn new techniques.
Hip Hop Dance: If you like to move to music, you'll love hip hop dance. Even beginners will leave this class with a lot to show off.
Jazz Dance: Another great dance class for everyone. Develop strength, poise, flexibility, balance, rhythm, coordination, and have fun!
