For over 20 years. Jill and Steve Pierce have been sharing their love of music with children ages 5-9 through classes, concerts and lessons. In this special one-week camp, participants will engage in fun musical adventures using singing, instrument play and movement. Each day campers will help write a new camp song, and we will also work on making their own fun instruments during the week. Fridays are performance days as we will record all of our newly created camp songs and make an "EP" for campers to take home and keep.
Steve Pierce teaches Kindergarten through Third Grade Music in the Lower School and directs the 5th Grade Handbell Choir. He has been teaching children’s music classes all over the Bay Area since 1999. Steve’s experience includes many years offering private early childhood music classes for ages 1 to 8, in addition to teaching in preschools and elementary schools, grades TK-5 (Laurel Dell, Venetia Valley, Montessori de Terra Linda, Mary Silveira, Bacich). Throughout this time Steve has been a performer as well. He contributed guitar, voice and songwriting to the children’s music group Orange Sherbet, who produced five CDs and performed with Dan Zanes and Hot Buttered Rum. Steve still performs regularly with his wife Jill (also a Music Teacher) doing children’s music and some original “grown-up” music too.
