Visiting Valotta Studios, we were pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of offerings that they had for young children in Chester County, PA. But we wondered, what if your child is new to the world of music? Where do they begin? While they can develop and grow their love for music and art through many of Valotta’s Summer Camps, we found that their Bumps and Beats, Voices Only, and Star Starters Camps are perfect launching points to get your child started in the world of music.
Bumps and Beats Camp
Bumps & Beats is what it sounds like, lots of fun with drums and keeping a fun beat, think performance groups like Stomp , it is the perfect camp for anyone interested in learning about percussion while performing music. In addition to learning drum skills, students will also get creative and make their own instruments from everyday items such as soda bottles, buckets, paper plates, and more! Drum circles, call and response, boomwhacker ensembles, and bucket drumming technique are among the topics that will be explored during this rhythmic camp. Valotta Studios will provide instruments and instrument supplies, so call today and get ready to rock!
Bumps & Beats meets July 18th – July 22nd from 8:30 am – 11:30 am.
Voices Only: A Capella Camp
Inspired by the movie Pitch Perfect and music groups like Straight No Chaser and Pentatonix, Voices Only a Cappella Camp gives students the opportunity to experience the increasingly popular style of a cappella music
in a hands-on format. In addition to developing their individual voices, students will learn how to blend their voices together to create a cohesive sound, how to manipulate their voices to mimic instrumental sounds, and how to use their voice percussively in a “beatbox” fashion. Students learn different vocal techniques used when singing as an ensemble, as well as when highlighting a soloist.
Voices Only meets July 11th – July 15th from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
Star Starters: Broadway Camp
If your child loves to sing, dance, create, and play then Star Starters may be right for them! In this hands-on camp, students will explore the history and concepts behind musical theater. In addition to giving each student the chance to create their own costumes and scenery, Star Starters promotes confidence and teamwork as students cultivate their own Broadway voices and learn collaborative group numbers. To best develop a well rounded Broadway Musician, Star Starters focuses on several different well-known musicals. At the end of the week, our shining stars will present a performance highlighting pieces they have learned in a show-stopping performance that will leave you cheering for an encore!
Star Starters meets June 27th – July 1st from 8:30 am – 11:30 am.
