Cannon School offers iPad music camp
CONCORD — Campers at Camp Cannon will enjoy a new session this summer, Making Music with the iPad.
Children ages 10-13 will use the iPad to learn the basics of music form and composition. The camp is for anyone interested in developing a better understanding of music; campers do not need to own an iPad to participate.
Upper School Band Director Brad Davis developed the camp when he saw the interest middle school students had in incorporating iPads into every aspect of their day.
“Once the students understand the music apps available on the iPad, they will collaborate on a group composition,” Davis said. “So not only are they learning about composition, they are also learning about collaboration and having fun in the process.”
“Of course we love the traditional science and arts camps, but we also like to offer something truly unique every year,” said Camp Cannon Director Marcia Brashear. “This summer, with a new focus on music, we have Davis’ Making Music with the iPad as well as his Intro to Jazz Band, and also new this year is Youth Rock Orchestra especially for string musicians.”
Making Music with the iPad is offered July 14-18 from 1-4 p.m. through Camp Cannon. More details can be found at www.campcannon.com.
