Music Day Camp

After mornings dedicated to French-language learning, campers will join the Royal Conservatory School for this engaging 1/2 day camp full of singing, movement activities, and musical exploration.

Students will sing, play in an ensemble with xylophones and drums, and explore movement activities to music…all in French!

Daily Activities

Chorus - In this active, one-hour session, students will learn fun techniques to expand the range and quality of their singing voices. They will be introduced to traditional folk songs and contemporary repertoire from traditions throughout la Francophonie. Together, we will sing, move and have fun--en français!

Orff Ensemble - Explore percussion instruments through melody and harmony.

Move to the Music – Move to the rhythm with exploratory movement and dance to music from around the world..

Skills developed

Neuroscientists have demonstrated that learning to play an instrument, or to sing, leads to changes in young people’s brains that make it more likely that they will reach their full cognitive and academic potential. So, don’t delay! Come stimulate your brain while having a ton of fun at one of the largest and most respected music schools in North America, where we believe that the finest instrument is the mind.
