HBMH Summer Camp: Music

Children are born to sing and dance!

This week’s summer camp theme is “music and movement”. All week long, our primary friends learned about rhythm, rhyme and melody while experimenting with several different musical instruments: rhythm sticks, tambourines, cymbals, triangles, drums, rain sticks, bells, and so much more. Each music and movement lesson included cultural aspects, geography, seasons, animals or feelings, giving our students a healthy foundation for music appreciation. Below are a few photos taken from our primary community, showing the different musical works that we enjoyed this week.
