Day Piano Camp
The 2013 Gilmore Day Piano Camp was held July 8-12 and was a great success. Kids enjoyed the full camp experience, while also learning about music and composition and performing for friends and family.
The Gilmore’s week-long Day Piano Camp consists of enrichment activities designed for the beginning years of piano study. Students range in age from 8 to 12 years, and camp placement is determined through an informal piano audition.
Held at the Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center, Gilmore Piano Camp is dedicated to expanding piano skills in an exciting outdoor environment. During the week, students are taught through an integrated curriculum of music, drama, art, nature and various water sports. Campers have access to a keyboard lab and participate in both solo and ensemble piano instruction with professional musicians.
Recitals by guest artists and camp faculty are attended by all campers. The week concludes with a final celebration recital by campers for their peers, friends and family.
