For twenty five years, children have had the best summer of their lives at the Amadeus Musical Theater and Art Day Camp in Chappaqua, Westchester County, NY ! At our specialty camp in theater, music and art, every child has a meaningful role in the show. The camp gives children the opportunity to perform musical theater, learn acting and choreography, compose their own songs and create sets.
Campers can also study band or orchestra instruments, piano, guitar and voice, create and paint large sets, learn choreography, play in a rock or chamber ensemble, create studio art and have fun with arts and crafts and outdoor activities.
Camp culminates in a staged outdoor or zoom performance.
This class is a stimulating and fun hands-on introduction to playing age appropriate instruments and movement games for younger campers. Instruments include 1/8 size violins, ukuleles, bongo drums, snare drum, conga drum, shakers, tambourines, accordions, and xylophone. We also do movement games to teach rhythm and dynamics.
Private Lessons (Ages 5 – 16) Private instruction is offered in piano, guitar, violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, percussion, drum set, recorder. Suzuki instruction is offered in violin for young children. During a private lesson, students work on scales, etudes, intonation, rhythmic technique and pieces from the solo repertoire.
Vocal instruction Vocal instruction for musical theater stresses correct breathing, vocal exercises, repertoire, style and performance practices. The repertoire will be based on popular songs from the musical theater literature.
Rock Band This class allows campers to play their instruments or sing in a rock band, through performing on instruments of the rock ensemble: keyboards, guitar, flute, saxophone, bass, drums and others. Students learn basic music theory and play together in jam sessions.
Song Writing This class will teach campers to create and record group songs.
Studio Art Using traditional, fine art methods, Studio Art gives campers the opportunity to visually express their perception of the world around them through painting, drawing and sculpture. By actively sparking their imagination through visual stimulation, students will enjoy the fun of creative expression and gain a sense of accomplishment. Students also design and paint the scenery for our theatrical production.
