Does it seem like getting your music badge is a daunting task? WCM can help you earn it in one week!
Scouting Music Badge
July 19-23 | 9 - 11 am
WCM in partnership with the Samoset Council for Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes are pleased to offer this one week course in music understanding and appreciation for scouts wishing to earn their music badges.
Based on the requirements of both organizations, scouts and other interested youth will learn about music theory fundamentals, composition, music history and basic music copyright laws. They will also be part of a music ensemble, learning to play their compositions and a few pieces on handchimes.
The course will culminate with a recital of the students' compositions intermixed with the concert pieces they learn.
