Music Camps
For Children 3 - 8 years old
We grow children through music!
Music camps during the school holidays
During the school holidays, we organise special music camps for children from 3 to 8 years old, 
with or without prior musical knowledge.
On these days, we work in small groups (6-8 children), based on age and musical background of the participants. 
The maximum amount of children on a music camp is 24. 

Every day, they will discover multiple instruments, musical notes, rhythm, harmony, theory and history through our CREATIVE METHOD Children are Composers. On top of that, the children will be able to read, write, compose and sing their own piece of music.   

We pay extra attention to the CREATION and the composing of their OWN MUSICAL NUMBER throughout the camps, whichever musical level the children have.

The camps are guided by our own professional Master Musicians, who are also active in 
House of Music Belgium throughout the entire year. 

Since not all the participants speak Dutch (we have an international audience), all of our camps are bilingual. (Ned/Eng).
Our camps in a nutshell:
All children from 3 to 8 years old

Every day from 9h - 16h

The children need to bring lunch and a snack for during the breaks to the camps.
What does a day at the camp look like?
We start the day with all the children singing together. 
Then we continue in the small groups with rhythm, melody, harmony, composition and instruments.

At noon we have a lunchbreak of an hour, and during the morning and afternoon, we also take a small break. 

If the weather allows it, we go to a playground in the neighbourhood during the lunchbreak. Everyone can get some air and we can start the afternoon with full courage and enthusiasm. 

On Friday (the last day of the camp) the parents can come at 16h to have a look at the performance their children prepared, 
in which they show what they have learned and discovered.
Every time, the joy is clearly visible on their faces and they will share their passion for music with you!  
What is the result for your child?
After one week at the camps, the children:
 Know all the music notes
 Know the basics of rhythm
 Have discovered a lot of different instruments 
 Have tried out some not so common instruments
 Can compose their own songs
 Can improvise on what they feel or think
This is true for children with AND without a musical background

Grandfather of Max, 10 months old
Yesterday, I tried the online video of Children are Composers BabyMusic with my granddaughter Max for the first time. She immediately became fascinated and kept on watching the entire episode while we were participating with the games and music. 

Since then my daughter-in-law has been watching the episodes with Max as well, with the same results. She's over the moon about it!

What a fun and easy way to keep little children busy with something educational. We are looking forward to the next video!
Who developed Children are Composers?
Hanne Deneire started the creation of her method when she was only 16 years old. At the age of 19, she got to develop het educative method even further with gifted children at the University of Antwerp. For this, she received a prize from the King Boudewijn Foundation.

In 2018, she started as a guest professor at the Royal Conservatory Antwerp, where she was closely involved in a study of Music & Babies. With her Master students, she visited nurseries and analyzed which sounds are appealing for babies and how they react to rhythmic patterns, musical instruments and the voice.

Hanne composed the performance “Nest” for Theatre de Spiegel. As a pre-study, she played music at all possible places for children from 0 to 3 years old. Up until now, this performance has already traveled the entire world and has been played over 500 times.
Our Mission is to let 1.000.000 children discovering the magic of music all over the world.
Our method Children are Composers introduces children from birth in a playful and creative way in the world of music. Enjoy the musical discoveries and let the creativity flow!
