Mini Music Makers

Grades: Pre-K-K

All Programs

Juniors will be jammin’ this week! In Mini Music Makers, our youngest campers will learn about rhythm and beats while creating some favorite instruments. Campers will get an earful of knowledge about the science of sound. They will focus on percussion, woodwind and string instruments as they design their very own. Tune in for all the different sounds our Juniors come up with!

21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: Emotion Management, Initiative, Responsibility, Creativity, Communication, Collaboration. Learn more about other skills we build through The EDMO Method®.

Take a look at your camper's daily schedule below, under sample projects!

Sample Projects

Toy Trumpet

Toy Trumpet

Campers will craft trumpets using construction paper and cardboard tubes. They will then use their toy trumpet to amplify their voices in the classroom!

Campers will learn about the different parts of a trumpet and how trumpets are able to create their sound. Campers will also learn how we use different shapes and tools to help amplify sound.

Hand Drum

Hand Drum

Campers will create a hand drum using a wooden dowel, card stock and other recyclable materials. They will then practice using their drums to form their very own EDMO Jr. drum line!

Campers will learn about the percussion family and the different materials used to create drums, bells, gongs, and more.

Rainbow Tambourines

Rainbow Tambourines

Campers will use paper plates and bells to create colorful tambourines. Then they will have the chance to paint and decorate their unique instruments.

Campers will continue to learn about the percussion family and be able to compare and contrast the shape, sound and materials used in the different instruments they make.

Sample Schedule

  • A Day in the Life...

Some kids thrive on routines and harmony. Others not so much. Good news! We’ve found the secret recipe that works for all EDMO campers!

Every day is different and we may do this through literature, various methods of meditation, group activities and/or positive vibes. We work on being curious, courageous and kind HUMANS.
