Grade School Program
Ages 6.5-13 (children entering 1st-8th grades)
Monday- Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm
Summer Folk Music Workshop (Grades 4-8* only)
This 7-day workshop will focus on learning to play folk music and creating a folk band of your peers. Through song and oral stories children will learn about the history and origins of folk music. The Summer Folk Workshop is a unique opportunity for young people (ages 10-13*) to explore and experience this rich genre of music on their very own instruments and will culminate in a performance at the end of the session to share what they have learned.
* Children younger than 10 will be considered with prior experience
**Students must have played at least one instrument for at least a year to participate, including violin, viola, cello, guitar, banjo, drums, voice (other instruments will be happily considered as well).
Animal Explorations (Grades 1-8)
Observing through the senses, children will explore the wonders of the natural world and the creatures that exist within. This short week we will take trips each day. Places we may visit include the zoo, park, botanic gardens, museum and wildlife refuge center.
Circus Arts Extravaganza! (Grades 1-8)
This Summer, run away with the Brooklyn Waldorf Circus! Juggling, tumbling, balancing, tightrope walking and learning to ride a unicycle are among the fantastic feats we will explore this week!
Marionette Players (Grades 1-8)
Become a puppeteer and build a working Marionette Theater! Over the week we will make and learn to use marionette puppets to retell a Grimm’s fairytale or a classic myth!
Grades: rising 3- adult
August 1st Individual Strings Lessons
Sarah Goldfeather and Lara Brodsky will be offering summer lessons for continuing and new students in violin, cello and viola. Students can choose to enroll in lessons once or twice a week. At the end of the 5-week summer term there will be a recital for families. This is a great opportunity for rising 3rd graders to become familiar with their chosen instrument before the fall!
