We had so much fun this month at piano camp! We focused on gaining note and interval recognition skills, and learned about the great composer Frederick Chopin (pronounced Show-Pan!)
The older girls took the opportunity to learn composing skills. They are each incredible composers!
Thank you to our students for your participation and to our parents for your support. Here are our fun musical activities….
