Last summer, I developed and field tested a summer camp curriculum with my own students, and this year, I'm making the lesson plans and student workbook available to you in my Etsy shop!
Piano Boot Camp: Special Ops is a five-day, one-and-a-half-hour camp for tweens and young teens, conducted as classes for 2-3 students at a time, using one piano. You can also pull off this camp with a larger group if you have the space.
Special Ops is highly customizable. You choose the literature that your students will work on during the week of camp. One of the challenges that the students face is that of learning their pieces mostly on their own, while your camp activities focus on learning the skills that help them with that independent learning. There are some technique exercises and sight reading selections included, but if you need material that is leveled differently, feel free to substitute other material!
