The musical youth camps are intended for young musicians who find in music a way of expression, through singing, playing or composing. During the camps, in-depth workshops are held on many topics including: theory, harmony, hearing development, composition and orchestration.
In addition, the trainees play in chamber ensembles, ensembles or orchestras and participate in various workshops on diverse topics - conducting, improvisation, music for films, healing through music, identifying and analyzing works and other workshops in various art fields.
In order to be admitted to the music major at the camp, a good level of playing ability, basic knowledge of music theory, a desire to improve listening skills and a general interest in music are required.
We invite children and teenagers between the ages of 12-18 at a musical level of at least 3 years of study and reading music is mandatory to join us for musical youth camps. The camps allow young people to experiment with challenging compositions while broadening their horizons with study content that is a window and encouragement for curiosity and openness to continue engaging in and consuming music.
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.
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.
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.
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.
