We are looking forward to welcoming children, who enjoy singing, to a unique opportunity to participate in our Summer Music Camp 2019.

Hoping to compliment the singing and musical study children are already enjoying at school, All Saints church is offering a fun and educational journey through the world of music – culminating in an informal performance of song and music for families and friends.

Music is an essential part of every child's development. A great song can often light up their eyes, encourage them to move around and dance, and even help instill a sense of confidence. And it doesn't end there.   

Studies have shown that music can help with language skills, develop fine motor skills and improve one's overall IQ. Here's a look at six ways a child can benefit from growing up with music:

1. Music cultivates little learners. Music Matters, a report by U.S. coalition Arts Education Partnership, highlights four key ways music can help children learn: It can enhance fine motor skills, prepare the brain for achievement, boost memory and even improve abstract reasoning. What better reason to make room for that piano?

2. Music might help with their math homework. While Baby Mozart may not be a game-changer, classical music is mathematical. According to parenting resource ParentMap, the many notes and rhythms all create "strong neuro-pathways through musical patterns that later add up to higher math skills."

3. Music can improve literacy. "The way we process musical sound is the same way we process speech," says Susan Hallam, a professor of education at University College London. Because of this, children who take music lessons can improve their listening skills and, in turn, improve the way they process language.

4. Music can boost one's overall IQ. Studies have shown that learning to play an instrument can have a lasting effect. According to Jessica Grahn, a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Western Ontario, children who took piano lessons for one year – coupled with consistent practice – saw an IQ bump as high as three points.

5. Music inspires a creative spirit. Whether it's making up the lyrics to songs or dancing wildly to the beat, your children will tap into their inner creative spirit. As the Royal Conservatory of Music explains, there is a "marked difference in inter-hemispheric communication (communication between the right and left sides of the brain) in individuals with musical training." It is believed this greater connectivity fosters creativity.

6. Music builds confidence. As parents, we want to do everything we can to help boost our children's confidence. With music, kids can express themselves, improve their skills and practice performing in front of others.

This 5 day long music camp explores many aspects of music making. There will be:

· Singing in a range of styles and languages – on a theme of Creation and the World/Animals

· Instrument demonstrations and ‘have a go’ activities including Piano, Organ, Church Bells, Hand Bells, Strings, Woodwind & Percussion

· Understanding and interpreting musical moods and rhythms

· End of week performance for families and friends

Starting in September, All Saints is excited to be launching a junior choir and an organ scholarship scheme. This will allow children the opportunity to develop life long musical skills such as sight reading, theory and musical performance.

Summer Camp: Mon 22nd – Fri  26th July 2019 – 9:45am to 12:30pm

For children aged 8-16. Free to attend with complimentary lunch provided
