MUSIC & MATH SUMMER DAY CAMP 2021
Where Critical Thinking & Creativity Meet
Three Week-Long Sessions:
July 26th – 30th
August 2nd – 6th
We will explore interconnections between music and math, and provide academic enrichment, music classes, leisure & recreation, fitness, and field trips.
There is a strong correlation between math and music. They often overlap and while music is considered the more creative of the two , there are more similarities between math and music than one would expect and we can use numbers and math principles to learn music and vice versa. Research has shown that when music shows some mathematical structure, it tends to be more popular.
This summer help your child explore both their intellectual and creative sides with our classes that use sound, rhythm, frequency and other musical concepts, to explain math elements, such as numbers, fractions, the Pythagorean Theory and much more. Here are just four known ways music and math are related:
Math helps in reading music
The frequency of music is related to math
Patterns are common in both
Music helps us study and think
Our campers will be placed in small groups based on age and level, and will have a music and math curriculum personalized and tailored specifically for their group.
Here are some of the sample classes your child will be participating in:
Making Sense of Numbers ~ We will be exploring rhythm and beats, how math & calculations create those beats. This will done on instruments, through demonstrations and movement.
Composition/Songwriting ~ We will explore music and math elements present in the structure of songs and music masterpieces. Students will have the opportunity to use what they learned to create their own musical masterpieces ☺.
Music & Sound from Around the World ~ We will explore how sound is measured? Why some instruments are louder than others? How sound is created and the math connection to it. We will travel the world of music and math and learn about famous composers and mathematicians.
Private & Group Instrument Study ~ Students will be evaluated and depending on their music experience (which is not required) will have an opportunity to have some private or group time with Music School of New York City’s distinguished faculty. If your child has prior music experience, please make sure to let us know when you register.
Intro to Opera ~ There are many ways to tell a story and musical storytelling goes back centuries and spans all genres. In this class, we will introduce our campers to the most dramatic of them all – OPERA!
Having fun this summer doesn’t mean you have to stop learning!
We have tons of other fun and educational classes up our sleeve. And we will make time for movies, lunch in the park, trips to the library, some down time, educational games, study hall and much, much more.
Open to Ages 6-16
