The International Music Camp 2017-2018
The International Music Camps take place on a seasonal basis throughout the year; in 2017, we had 3 short camps/workshops on the 17 and 18 of December 2017, at the Schuman camp with Prof. Michael Wolpe, geared towards orchestra musicians, with ages ranging from 13 - 18 years. The Winter Seminar was held on the 16 of December, 2018. participants are young musicians and singers (of the classical music tradition), with ages ranging from 13 - 18 years, with at least three years of musical education and a good grasp on sight-reading classical composition.
Since 1984, Youth and Music Israel has kept the tradition of holding a music summer camp on an annual basis. The 6-day program - taking place in July - focuses on Israeli music and the contact of cultures through the merging of sound. The program is intended for teenagers ranging from twelve to seventeen-year-olds who play all instruments including voice.
The camp includes the finest workshops with senior teachers, enrichments, improvisation, movement, compositions, social activities and more.
In the morning, the focus is on ensemble, playing in preparation for the final concert on day six. In the afternoon, the kids participate in workshops that are held by academic teachers, and in the evening, we have social activities.
Our camp is an overnight camp, accommodation included.
All our camp teachers are from the top Israeli music academies and all - including administrators - are English-speakers.
Our musical director is Prof. Michael Wolpe, an internationally-well-known composer and conductor from the academy of music and dance in Jerusalem. He will lead the concert class.
Mr. Nizar Alkatar - graduate of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and a highly-acclaimed pianist - leads the piano classes in the Tel Aviv Music Academy.
In each class there are two additional assistant instructors for individual attention if needed.
The social activities organizer and administrator are available on a 24-hour-basis as well.
Each morning, the children congregate for the day's opening talk and singing. Afterwards, they are divided into their alloted groups and workshops according to their own choosing.
Following lunch, they take part in enrichment workshops in many topics relating to music, such as music therapy, introduction to music score reading, conducting workshops and improvisation, singing and more. The main goal of these workshops is to expose the children to musical areas that they are not usually exposed to in the formal musical training institutes.
Tasty meals are offerd three times a day and refreshments are provided throughout the day. The camp complex is secured and well-kept, situated in a quiet and pleasant neighbourhood in the town of even yehuda .
Price for all days including accommodation is 650$ per child. The payment is by bank transfer:
