The small ensembles course is open to all instruments. It is essentially a chamber music course. Size and repertoire vary depending on the number of participants. Participants should have a basic ability on the instrument. Groups are formed with players of similar levels.

This course seeks to develop and enrich the experience of music lovers by acquiring specific knowledge of music. The collective listening of musical works is accompanied by comments by the teacher and can also be enhanced by audio-visual materials. The active collaboration of participants is frequently encouraged.

Would you like to learn to read music or perfect your musical reading? This course is an introduction to what you need to know to read a score. Over the centuries, codes have been chosen to write musical notes and rhythms. By “decoding” a score – you can read it and therefore sing it or play it.

*This course is suitable for beginners

This course will be an exploration of Brazilian and African percussion through rhythms and instruments characteristic of each of these traditions. Rhythmic exercises, sonorities and listening to traditional ensembles will be on the program, to then create our own percussion orchestra!

*This course is suitable for beginners

Origami is an art that allows you to create, with the aid of a simple sheet of paper, a succession of folds to achieve, without cutting or gluing, the figurative representation or not, of all kinds of models. Every day of the week, we will fold a variety of Origami models that will make a communal work of art that will cover the windows and walls of the CAMMAC cafeteria. The models taught will be adapted to the skills and ages of each participant. At the end of the week, participants will be able to take home their own pieces. Adults and teenagers will also benefit from an introduction to Japanese Art History as well as Japanese language.

You want to try traditional dance? In folklore, all are invited, young and old, the goal is more social and interactive, and while revisiting the traditions of Quebec, we learn to dance to the rhythms of the world. Dance is a great way to develop motor skills and coordination, but its first goal, of course, is lots of fun!

**Programming may be subject to change.


March 3rd is Girls’ Day in Japan! With photos and videos, we will discover this tradition. And for the boys, we will also talk about their special day that takes place on May 5th!

We will make origamis attached to the two holidays: flowers and dolls for the girls’ day  and big helmets of samurai and carp fish for the boys’ day.
