 CAMP Activities

  • Masterclass - Students are encouraged to perform a piece that they have been learning. Through this, they can observe, motivate and learn from one another. A certain topic of musical knowledge will also be discussed during the masterclass session. Students are advised to read their handouts before coming to masterclass. We believe that learning is an endless journey and is much more enjoyable to share it with other music friends.
  • Theory & Aural session - Playing music could not be separated from knowing the theory behind it. Not only do we need to know how to play the music, we also need to know how to produce a pleasant sound by training our ears. In this session, we will guide the students to know better the basic of music theory as well as the fundamental knowledge of aural training.
  • Music games - Participants will get to know each other though some fun-filled ice breaker music games!
