Believe It or Not, Summer (and Summer Camps) IS Around the Corner
With snow on the ground, it feels a bit far off to think of summer already. But, believe it or not, summer is right around the corner! BSM has some fantastic summer camp offerings that you will want to check out. Whether you are a student or parent looking for a great camp for your child, there is something for every child.
For those looking to express their artistic and creative side, there are camps for drama, music, French and more. BSM is also offering an array engineering camps for the tech enthusiasts with camps ranging from computer building to Minecraft to robotics. If you're needing to move your body and stay active this summer, there are a myriad of sports camps for different ages from baseball to tennis to football!
As the Orchestra Director here at BSM, I'd like to put out a special plug for the two music camps I'm offering: An Alternative String and Chamber Music Camp.
If you're a string player and have some friends that also play a stringed instrument, please sign up for one or both. In both, you'll learn the art of playing in a small ensemble. The Chamber Music Camp will be more traditional and classically-based studying of the works of composers such as Bach and Bartok. The Alternative Strings Camp will venture into various genres of non-classical repertoire like Rock, Jazz and Fiddle/Bluegrass. (Pre-requisite is at least one year of study in either orchestra or private lessons for grades entering 6-12).
Some of my fondest and most favorite memories of my musical education and summer were spent in music camps. In these summer camps, I had the pleasure of learning great works of art while also meeting fellow musicians who had the same passion for playing music but in a smaller more intimate environment than the big orchestra experience. The summer is a great way to take advantage of such extracurriculars that one might not have the time to explore during the school year. And, summer camps at BSM are the perfect way to get or stay connected with the incredible Red Knight community.
