Doors: 1pm | Performance: 1pm

Let’s Read: Rhythm and Melody on the Page with Briana Shyver

We will learn to read basic melodies using a sound-to-symbol process. The students will sing a song used throughout the week and describe what they hear. We will discover what those sounds look like and learn how to read them!

Teaching Artist: BRIANA SHYVER is currently a junior studying at Millersville University of Pennsylvania for her Bachelor of Science in Music Education. She spends the majority of her time as a percussion instructor for the Penn Manor Marching Unit and working as a Freshman Peer Mentor and Tell School Tutor. Her blossoming career is well on its way as her passion for music is ever growing. Briana loves to express herself through the arts and is looking forward to seeing what the campers can create through music!

Registration is now open for ARTS SMARTS Camps, offered through The Arts at Millersville University at the Ware Center, in downtown Lancaster. For two weeks starting June 19 and June 26, Arts at MU will present 12 unique camps per each week in morning and afternoon sessions for young campers in Music, Theatre or Visual Arts. The Ware Center is located at 42 N Prince Street, Lancaster, PA. 
These camps have been created especially for children in two grade-level ranges: (rising) Kindergarten–Grade 2 and (rising) Grades 3-5. Each camp is different, and there are morning and afternoon options for both grade-level ranges and in all three disciplines – Music, Theatre, and/or Visual Arts.  And the camps are open to children of all abilities. 

Campers can register for morning sessions from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, afternoon sessions from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, or both!  (For those staying all day, there is a supervised lunch period. Lunches must be brought to camp and will be refrigerated.)  Morning and afternoon snacks are provided.   Both mornings and afternoons feature a “Common Hour” in which all campers join together for a large group creative multi-disciplinary activity.  On Fridays of both weeks, there are morning and afternoon performance showcases and art exhibits for families and friends featuring the campers’ work of each week.   Drop-off and pick-up at the Ware Center is supervised by the staff.   

The staff is comprised of a team of professional teaching artists and Millersville University Arts Education students who have full clearance for working with children. 
Camps are $125 for a 1/2 day session, per week, per child. We offer full and partial scholarships. Please email Barry.Kornhauser@Millersville.edu to inquire about scholarship options.
