Cricket has been jumping around McGill for over a dozen years! She has hopped in and out of the Camp Office, helping numerous campers and staff over the years. With a wide understanding of how to keep things running smoothly, you may not ever see her, but you can certainly hear her chirping away as she completes her tasks. She works hard to help organize camps, helping you register, answer your questions during camp season, and tying up all those loose ends at the end of season! Cricket has started her own family now, and soon hopes to have her little critters come back to the McGill Conservatory as fledgeling campers! Let's hop to it!
Starfish started dancing as soon as she could walk, and she loves painting and music! A student at McGill, she waits out the cold, long winters in Montreal anticipating all the fun of camp each summer. She loves to put on plays, and sheknows that kids are the best actors. Starfish is excited to share her love of the Arts this summer with you, and can't wait to see you all soon!
After just having finished high school, I can’t wait until summer to have fun… and especially with all of you! Just like Nala in the Lion King, she is loving, patient, responsible and nice. You can trust her and come see her to talk anytime, anywhere. She love learning new things and discovering new worlds. All summer long, she will look forward to meeting you, knowing you from head to toe, and sharing the best and most hilarious moments with you. Take note that she can laugh until she cries… which is something normal lions don’t usually do!
Hi my name is Beeker, as in the Muppets character! My friends say I have an uncanny resemblance to him, and I go along with it for a laugh! I am very excited for camp this summer and can't wait to be a part of the team. I am a recent graduate of Bishop's University in Honours Political Science and have spent the last few months travelling India and Thailand, I cannot wait to meet everyone this summer!
Who said that dogs were dumb? Certainly not Snoopy! After a three-year stint in Quebec City, she's back at camp for a second summer in a row! Armed with her bachelor's in communications, she's in charge of the camp administration. Whether it's for a boo-boo or a question about your registration, Snoopy's ready, and ready to have fun all summer, too! Toodles!!
Frimousse is quite a special girl. Her personality is overflowing with contradictions! Serious yet insane. Funny yet melancholic. Her friends always find her amusing. With teaching in her soul, she is currently studying pre-school and primary education at UQAM. Profoundly well organized herself, Frimousse can take on many responsibilities at once and still be available to guide others. Behind this wise and angelic face, there is a mischievous young lady who likes to have fun and who has a deadpan sense of humour. Her passion for dancing makes her flutter like a hummingbird. What? Sit down and relax??? Never! This summer, she hopes to face new challenges and to see happiness and smiles everywhere.
Coordinator- Camp Artemusik
My name is Zed, I've always used that summer camp name!, and this is going to be my first summer at McGill Conservatory Day Camp. A bit about myself: I'm studying to be a teacher with kids with learning and/or behavior disabilities. All my life, I've worked with kids because I've always got that feeling inside of me. Life has sent me messages at some special moments in my life that spending my life with kids, either by having fun with them or teaching to them, was my destiny. By working with those little treasures that are mini-humans, I've realized how important it is, to me, to make myself a special spot in everyone's life. I've always found my own way to make it... and this summer, I chose McGill Conservatory Day Camp to change someone's life, and hopefully, to change mine a little bit as well! See you soon :)
La voici, la voilà, l'énergie sur deux pattes! Au travail, Bulle devient un petit personnage sautillant remplie d'énergie étonnant pour une fille si calme, posée et songeuse dans la vie. Mais au camp, Bulle veut mettre le paquet! Adepte de théâtre, Bulle a étudié le domaine au cégep en plus d'avoir 10 ans de cours de piano. Ayant longtemps rêvé de chanter, elle a réalisé dernièrement que son manque de talent lui nuit... Ce petit clown étudie maintenant les communications (oula?!?) à l'UQÀM en journalisme (futur Bernard Derome). Si vous cherchez Bulle un jour, je vous conseille fortement d'aller voir dans une piscine, cette nageuse de compétition y passe plusieurs heures. Cet été, elle espère se sentir à Artemusik comme un poisson dans l'eau!
Garage Band Coordinator
When Gig heard about Camp Artemusik, he jumped at the chance to join their team! This camp is exactly what he thinks a summer camp should be: way cool activities and a crazy team who are the bomb, all situated right downtown! He's joining the team this year as the Garage Band Camp Coordinator where he'll be right at home since he's a musician himself. If you ask him: “Hey Gig, you got a gig tonight?” he'll probably answer: “Yeah, and tomorrow night, too!!” Gig loves keeping busy and so he's looking forward to producing some awesome shows this summer and offering his campers the chance to be a rock star!!
Coordinator- Specilized Camps
Like the famous explorer Indiana Jones, I will take you on a great adventure this summer!

Djembe is the spitting image of the musical instrument of the same name: percussive, communal and communicative. He's currently studying communications at UQAM. He plays guitar, bass, drums, computer music, etc. But Djembé's real calling is working behind the scenes. Rehearsals, artistic advisement, event planning, communications, graphics… these are his domains. During the winter he works for a radio station and has even been an artists' agent! Djembé follows the Artemusik Food Guide for Better Living: a huge variety of music, a pinch of humour and a tall glass of sunshine. This happy diet doesn't prevent him from indulging in his favourite treats, theatre, dance, cycling and Lebanese food (!!). Get ready for the shish-taoukest summer of your life! Arrriba!
When Dee isn't playing music, she's either thinking or talking about it. She plays bass for the rock n' roll band Throwback and toured the United States with them for three months last fall. During that time, they sold out the first pressing of their CD, Border Crossing. But her talents reach much farther than that: she's the assistant conductor of the McGill Conservatory Youth Choir and still finds time to squeeze in the odd jazz-combo gig. She loves working with kids --- as her many young guitar students will confirm --- and considers it her destiny to expose today's youth to the genius of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix! Don't forget to ask her about Phish.
Warning! Tornado Alert! Tornade is overflowing with energy and knows how to get you excited too!!! She loves kids and her nickname is the “idea bank”. Your group is bored and you've tried everything?

Camp Artemusik is the perfect place to start that project! Liveliness, extroversion, creativity, joviality, resourcefulness and a sense of initiative make up Biscotte's personality. She loves being challenged and challenging others! Have a great summer!
Chaussette is a 'leisure-addict'! She has just completed her second year in a cégep-level programme in leisure studies at the Université de Trois-Rivières. Always looking for new challenges, she stumbled upon a help-wanted ad for Camp Artemusik and thought is was a very interesting offer. So she jumped in! You can tell by her name that she is still a kid at heart, loves to laugh and is brimming with energy. Her joie de vivre is obvious and contagious; watch out: you may well be 'infected' this summer!!!! :)
As a mystical globe-trotter, I never get tired of recounting my travels to anyone who will listen! After working with kids of all ages for the last 6 years, I chose to explore the wonderful world of Artemusik this summer. No doubt I'll have a great time playing and singing with you... With someone as colourful as I am, you won't have time to get bored. Also, watch out: I am a gifted prankster and I love to tease the ones I love! Armed with patience and cheerfulness, I'm always available to those I work with. Don't be afraid to share your good ideas with me... Imagination and creativity: here's all you need to have lots of fun... So, fellow campers, all that's left is for us to get to know one another, and just you wait and see how much fun we can have together!
The great ‘Pinceau' (Paintbrush) has taught arts and crafts to the 4- to 6-year-old kids at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp for the past two summers. Quite thrilled with that experience, he was the 2003 5- to 7-year-olds coordinator at the Artemusik Camp. - Watch-out... It's gonna be a groovy summer... :-) "So good // so good // 'cuz I've got you... Outside of this camp, Pinceau completed in June of 2002 a bachelor's degree in drama at the École Supérieure de Théâtre de l'UQAM. (Don't laugh you guys; it's really what it's called!!!) He is currently working as a puppeteer with the Théâtre Sans Fil on a Québec/USA tour, on top of recently founding his very own theater company, La Putto Machine. Music, dance, theatre, painting, giggles and fun are six of the great Pinceau's passions. He hopes to share them all with the campers and with his nutty team of counsellors this coming summer. Can't wait to see you there!
Sol is a ray of sunlight bursting onto the chorale scene this summer! Double majoring in Music and Education at McGill University, she is excited to bring her love of singing to camp Artemusik. When Sol isn't singing at the top of her lungs, she's probably figuring out a way to burst onto the Broadway scene, or maybe just soaking up some rays...while always wearing her SPF 30 of course!
Cinnamon is finishing her year in Youth Child Care work (psychoéducation) at Université de Montréal. She is passionate about the arts and enjoys playing guitar, singing, drawing and sculpting. She also loves organising games for young people and is excited when she sees youth stand up and take leadership roles in an effort to share their gifts with others. Having travelled to different places in the world, Cinnamon loves to look at things from different perspectives and hopes to offer campers just the right spice to complete the recipe.
Hello I have to warn you that this name has quite a story. One day, a friend and I were playing a game called « geography test », and we found ourselves naming the names of Québec towns. At one point we noted the beauty of the name Shawinigan, and right then I simply shortened it to something which sounded good, and thus Shawi. I particularly like the wi at the end of the name, I find that it rolls off the tongue and is pleasant to the ears. Plus I love escaping to this Quebec town whenever I have a chance, and although it is a beautiful town, more importantly the word Shawi is a beautiful name.
Like the name says, he likes things that are old. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that he don’t fully embrace the future, and even sometimes the moon (huh? What? What’d he say?). With a Diploma from Concordia University in Cinema, he’s excited to share his passion for the 7th art and video. If you look carefully, you can often find him in a quiet corner writing, simply thinking (!!!) or talking (his name could also be Bla-Bla-Bla), he could be in the middle of telling one of his many stories, which despite his best intentions, always have a hilarious ending. He is passionate about what he does but he gets more satisfaction by transmitting that enthusiasm to those around him.
Cappella is carried by the melody, no matter what it is. Kept back by nothing, only it’s own echo can stop it. Her versatility in the field of arts allows for many new adventures ! Her degree in theatre gave her the chance to see that everyone in the world has a voice, no matter what it is. It’s implication is as significant in the community as in the professional world, in the francophone as in the anglophone. Getting all rallied up, she is more than excited that the summer is here, to laugh, improvise, to create rhythms each crazier than the next…She impatiently awaits all the overflowing energy, to create universes, and characters which you will remember for a long time…Cappella is ready with a whole lot of harmony !
Stéréo for Stéréo Love! Stéréo adores music, rhythm and rhymes! Her passion: mixing different styles and art forms and creating. Stéréo's brain is a strange place where bizarre ideas, uninterrupted melodies and animated characters live together. Seeing a great big gang of kids singing and sharing one emotion bring a tear to her eye. Born in the middle of summer, she has been making music since she was little. Sunshine in her soul, Stéréo loves Camp!!
Video is a complex world. One mistake, not having attention to detail or forgetting one little thing can completely change the feel of a production. From the conception, to the script, and the filming, you have to be a good team and have lots of enthusiasm to arrive at the end. After completing a training in cinema, Zoom is presently training in interpretation where he realized that whether in front or behind the camera, every detail is important and nothing must be forgotten. But such enthusiasm does not take the fun out of it, and Zoom is excited to help you put your ideas onto the screen by transmitting his love of film to you. At every step of the production new challenges arise. From A to Z, Zoom needs a team and he waits impatiently…
Glissando's description is on it's way!
Extremely rare specimen, the wild Kapow has no short fuse and is packed with imagination and fun! This mysterious creature is attracted by the sound of urban music and lights of big cities. We must be careful, the wild Kapow aims to tackle the full force of his imaginary enemies. Always ready for anything (like a Pokemon!), Kapow's not afraid of danger, and always comes out on top.
Odyssey is the name for a big adventure filled with magic and incredibly awesome events: it is exactly what I wish we will live together this summer at the camp! Odyssey is also the title of one of the first theatre plays ever written: you can guess that I indeed LOVE drama! I am currently studying Drama Education to become a Elementary/High School drama teacher: I found a way to mix my love for the arts and my love for children in one amazing career project! First you have to know that I love theatre just as much as Japanese people love rice: a lot! I also love to write, to play music, to enjoy a good movie, to visit art galleries, to take pictures and to read at least 2 books at a time. I also happen to work part-time an Tour Director for scholars groups visiting cities in North America: it is through that job that I discovered how much I get along with children and teenagers! You will witness yourself this summer that I am indeed a FUN-TASTIC person!
Colibri (french for hummingbird) is a prairie songbird from out West. She can be seen buzzing around McGill, where she is studying jazz voice and music education. Colibri loves singing, playing music, dancing, and choir more than anything. She thinks all styles are fun to sing, anything from classical, jazz, pop, rock, and musicals. She’s a curious bird, who hears music everywhere, loves to laugh, and believes anything is possible if you use your imagination. She can’t wait to sing with everyone this summer!
I chose Jammin' because it holds my name and also because the word represents what I do best in life; JAMMING. I've been jamming/improvising since I've been a kid whether it be with a bongo drum, a drumset, a guitar or a blade of grass! I am very excited to jam with you this summer!
Trèfle is ... Trèfle is... Trèfle is, well intelligentabubbly grumpy. She sometimes feeds on the brains of the youth and connects wires from creativity with logic. Most commonly seen giggling under bedsheets, in tents filled with pegs, or around the corner of a door surrounded with crumbles of wax, pencil residue or paint, Trèfle is a creature of her own kind. She teaches art, apparently. It is told that she is quite mature and cunning in her own way. Don't be disturbed by her silly walks or facial expressions, it truly is her cuddle factor!
Kanga(roo) is a fun loving marsupial. She is currently finishing her degree in theatre and cultural studies at McGill University. Jumping, adventurous, and full of energy, she can make anyone smile. Kanga takes very good care of her young- she has a pouch where she can scoop them up if they get sleepy- and Kanga is sure that if they bounce around with her all day they certainly will be in need of a nap! Kanga’s love of the arts is what inspired to apply for Artemusik- she loves art more then she loves a good bounce through the outback- and that’s saying a lot!
Capu, capuccino or capuchin...every nickname works for her! A cegep student studying science, she has an insatiable curiosity. Passionate about piano and photography, she loves the arts and new discoveries. She is a loving camp counselor, dinamic and energetic. She does not miss the chance to participate in new experiences! She is already so excited to meet you and spend the summer with you!

I have worked at residential camp for the past 2 years, and am very excited to live the day camp experience.
Comme le serpent, BoaBee peut être aperçue s'infiltrant in and out de l'action. Lorsqu'elle est inspirée, elle n'injecte pas du poison mais des mouvements funky et repart à l'aventure. Ce serpent t'attends pour partager des PAS avec toi cet été!
Lunar est le mot en espagnol pour grain de beauté. Lunar a un gros grain de beauté sur le bras gauche, et elle sait bien que les enfants remarque rapidement ce genre de chose. Lunar fait donc appel au corps dans ses petits détails. Lunar invite au monde des étoiles et du ciel et est une personne ouverte et créative qui aime ouvrir les portes de l'imaginaire aux enfants et aux plus vieux aussi!
Lux-O est tout un numéro! Entre ses univers imaginaires et la réalité il tente toujours de rassembler toutes ses idées pour en faire de folles histoires qu'il projetera un jour sur grand écran. En attendant pour se défoulé il aime bien inventé toutes sortes d'activités completement "flyées" qu'il désire partagé. Vous cherchez Lux-o? Suivez le bras qui tient la caméra la-bas...
A plug has a ton of uses: you can plug in a washing machine, or a lamp, or a lovely spring-scented air-freshener... or if you stick in a paper-clip, you can electrocute yourself (Yikes!!) You can use a plug to play your guitar or to curl your hair. But the most fun thing to do with a plug... is to use it as your name! It has been said that movie-making is the art of plugging... yourself, or others??? That is the question! As Camp Artemusik's very own 'Plogue', it will be my job to 'plug you into' the basics of movie-making and to 're-charge your batteries' with my energy and passion for the 'electrifying' world of video creativity.
My name is not just a name: it's a delicious source of energy!!! Like licorice (Réglisse), I'm colourful, tasty, sweet but never salty (imagine it... yuck!!!) With my training in theatre and all my camp experience, I know how to have fun with you and guide you though great emotions (theatrically speaking, of course...) So come on and join me!!! 'Cause at Artemusik "Laugh and you laugh alone!" ... wait, that's not right... "Laugh and the world laughs at you!" ... oh dear, that's not quite it either. Wait! I've got it! "Laugh and the whole world laughs with you!!!" (yeah... good one Réglisse!)
Carrousel: "quaint merry-go-round", you might think. But, oh, how sorely you would be mistaken! She'll have you rolling in the aisles and beside yourselves with glee!! Carrousel studied communications at Vieux Montréal Cegep. and she would like to continue her studies in Dramatic Arts. She also has many years of experience in theatre and modern dance, jazz, classical, hip-hop, and even knows a touch of tap dance. With her curious nature, she dabbles in all the arts, and you'll often find her strumming her guitar, beating on her drum, tickling the ivories of the piano, or dreaming up some whacko comedy-skit. In short, you will not fall asleep on a ride with this Carrousel!!!!
Focus is a creative girl, energetic and even a bit of a clown at times, who is passionate about everything to do with theatre, dance and of course cinema! What's more, as a result of long years studying cinema, she recently received a scrolled piece of parchment and an odd flat cap. Focus adores setting off on an adventure and has visit far off places where she met some curious characters around your age, who also wanted to know how the mysterious moving-image box works. Together they captured light, colours, shapes, faces, expressions, and sounds. One thing's for sure: this summer whatever's fuzzy for you about video will come sharply into Focus!
Attention all neighbours! Close your doors and windows, 'cause the decibels are going through the roof! Funky is passionate about music and can't wait to share it with all of you! He will soon finish his third year of a performance diploma in jazz and popular music at Cégep St-Laurent. Hoping to make a career with his rock group, Funky is going to teach the rudiments of this art which are accessible to everyone. So hang on to your hats, 'cause this summer is going to GROOVE!!!
Gomme-Balloune is aptly named: she's always chewing gum! With one exception, that is: during choir, of course, since it's hard to sing and chew at the same time! Otherwise, you'll always find her with some type of candy (such a good(?) source of energy...) She studies classical music at McGill, and has conducted youth choirs in the past. She loves kids of all ages and is SUPER GLAD to be a teacher to budding musicians!
Hi! My name is Kino. I love everything that's got to do with cinema and I know a lot about this magical medium! You will recognize me easily by my mismatched socks and my Disney T-shirts. Open your eyes and your ears... watch and listen very carefully because cinema is an amazing art!

You'll cultivate the qualities that make you a good musician as well as those that let others enjoy making music with you! With Weezie, be ready to break down your barriers and above all to have fun this summer.
A blossom of new ideas and original games, Whippet is patient and passionate about kids. She has a ton of stories to tell that will fill you with summer energy. As a newcomer to the great Camp Artemusik, Whippet is going to help you discover the wonderful universe of imagination and laughter. She loves singing, musical comedy and having fun! There's no time to be bored, Whippet is here to keep you busy!
Being gallant is not only knowing good manners, but also applying them. There are many ways to act and, both in drama and in life, some are better than others. Once that's clear, the fun can begin. The audience is just waiting to be charmed and moved. Keep in mind though that a truly gallant individual always acts naturally, and not just so that others will like him/her. So let's open the door to your imagination and savour the fragrance of your interpretations. Since to love theatre is to love people, you need only reflect reality to be gallant.
Hello Hello! My name is Froot Loops. I chose this name because: what could be more colourful than froots loops? I, too, am very colourful... red for love (yes, yes I am eternally in love with life)... green for nature and the great outdoors which are a part of me... yellow for the sun that I bring each day in my bag... blue for the water which is my second medium of existence... and also... violet because just like these small flowers I blossom each day with the smiles of children. In essence, I am the breakfast full of flavours that you need to have a wonderful day!!!!
Cub is usually found deep in thought, sitting with his guitar in the sunshine, letting his perception of the world pass through his voice and instrument. He is passionate about arts and culture, and is always seeking out adventure. He loves meeting new people, snowboarding, skateboarding and listening to different styles of music, from reggae and funk to jazz and rock. Cub loves playing, and creating with people of all ages, learning new instruments and is always up for a good jam session!
Some six years ago, a wee, young and frisky Jazzy came to Peanut, her CV under her arm looking for a summer job. She could feel her nervousness all over her body; she gesticulated and fidgeted her way through the interview, so much so that Peanut thought she was showing him a new choreography... He was charmed by her enthusiasm and passion for dance. Since that day, Jazzy shares her joy of movement with young and old alike, and is already preparing an explosive programme for this coming summer! Get ready… It'll be groovy!!!
« Pe-truuuuu-ska, do not cry! Join in our dance… » Our dance, mimics and theater. « Let your blond hair twirl about… » Blond, brown or red, depending on my shifting mood and changing winds, with songs and funny faces to boot! Being neither Russian, Czech nor from the Uzbekistan, but adhering to the precepts and teachings of the Great Master Constantin Stanislavski, I am like one of these Russian dolls, containing multiple personalities, talents and tricks!!! So put on one of Grandad's old shirts and become Pulcinello through the wondrous magic of the theater…
Once upon a time, a mighty wind blew through my life and transformed me into a real ball of energy. On that day, the wind made my arms, legs, head and entire body move around. I immediately became dance-obsessed! Now I have become that wind myself and I am here to make you dance and smile all summer long!!!
Tchiboum is quite a number! She'll get a great sound out of any table, chair or pen. If you hear a door knob solo, she's probably at work on her next composition. Since she was very small (which she still is, incidentally...!), Tchiboum has loved percussion and that's why she loves sharing her passion and her love for music with everyone that she meets. She has taught percussion for many years and studied it at the Université de Sherbrooke (she is now doing her Master's degree at the Université de Montréal). For a second summer at Camp Artemusik, she would love to help you discover sounds you never thought existed!
With Chili, don't worry;

You'll shake your head, your feet and your booty,
Discover worlds unknown to anybody.
Jokes and fun are her specialty!
Hear ye, hear ye,
Time for drama with Chili!!

Hi everyone my name is Gazou! A few years ago I was studying to become a social worker, and a hot summer was coming upon us. So I said to myself: why not spend these beautiful days running after little rascals?!?! So I did! In three summers at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp, I went from counsellor to arts and crafts instructor. This is how I developed a taste for cardio and paint fights (n'est-ce pas, Simon & Samuel?!?!) So this year I'll be at Peanut's camp! It's a date!!! GAZOU XXX
Arts & crafts
Believe it or not, four years ago I landed at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp because of a trip to France… Faithful and sweet as ever, I stayed with the 4- to 6-year-old group all that time. (Incidentally, don't they deserve a funkier name...?) Given my passion for our planet and all the crazy stories it holds, I love enticing our wee ones' imaginations by telling them on of its tales. Many would say that this is my true vocation... I'll be leading (for a second time this summer; but this time at the Artemusik Camp) the arts and crafts workshop with our friend Shakespeare. You'll see time will fly when you're with us! See you very soon, Mandoline XXX
Here I am, your vocal coach! I'm a music addict! Having performed in several musicals myself and being a trained singer and keyboard player, I jumped at the opportunity to work at the Broadway Camp! After completing my Jazz vocal performance degree at the Cégep Marie-Victorin, I ran head first into the jungle of the music world and I still haven't come out! I love vocal harmony, and I've done it all: back-up singing, musical directing, producing, art directing, arranging, solo singing on several productions, adjudicating, etc. One recurring and growing passion in my life: teaching. So I can't wait, and I'm delighted to get to have fun with you guys for a third summer at Camp!
Mimik embodies the energy, the joy, the craziness and the fun that comes from doing drama workshops with the little ones. Last year, Mimik amazed us with the two stories she created along with the whole 4- to 6-year-old team at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp. This summer she followed her two friends, Peanut and Pinceau, over to the Artemusik Camp. Will we get to see Momo again this summer?!?!? To be continued...
My name is Pavel. I am not a hockey player nor am I Russian. But I am a music lover, and making music with kids is so awesome!!! I graduated from McGill University in honor's voice and music education. I began my master's in conducting this past fall. Schroeder (the former choir director) got me this aammmmmazzzzzzzing gig at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp three years ago. Being the choir director for the 8-15 year old group has been incredibly outrageously fun au bout!!! I can't wait to see you all this summer.
Sama is a raging river of energy. Everybody beware, for she knows how to get your attention and respect!!! On the other hand, her knowing winks don't fool anyone, and everybody loves her. Sama has been drama instructor for the last three summers at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp. Last year's adaptation of Ulysses' travels? That was her idea. She's back this year with all her crazy ideas and her joie de vivre!!! See you at the Artemusik Camp!

Don't be fooled by the geeky looks of this Master of Music Theory! Finch has been playing bass and singing (or was is screaming?) in a rock band for over ten years. Some even say they've seen him triturate cello strings in countless underground venues since the 1990s. His plans for the summer are to find out how low guitarists/bassists can wear their instrument, how high and raucous singers can wail, how hard drummers can pound, how begrudged keyboardists can act, how mucky bassonists can sweep, how ...
Banana popcycles are the BEST! That’s why Dee decided to call me Banane, and since what she says is genious, I am now known as BANANA ( or Beunane, wichever you like better). Banane loves to laugh, she is always finding ways to make people laugh and knows when to laugh at herself when needed. Banane loves to tell stories to her friends, but she loves it even more when they have funny stories to tell her. Banane is very creative and that is one of the reason she is a good musician.

Feedback is a light-hearted rocker. Often considered as a nerd of rock and roll, he can be seen reading philosophy books wearing awfully thick glasses. His favorite instrument is bassoon, even though he can't play it, spell it or identify it visually. He therefore plays guitar. Working as author and comedian in the humor group Les Appendices, he also writes and plays songs in his own band, The Underground Mama, which has not encountered any kind of success yet. His hard-core ukulele version of Helter Skelter will make you shed a tear of joy... or pity.

Pianiste depuis le biberon et même avant, claviériste, piocheuse de drum depuis pas très longtemps, saxophoniste refoulée, ouf... Quand elle ne répète pas de numéros musique-cirque consistant à se faire lancer des balles de jonglage par la tête pendant qu'elle joue du piano, Kaï pratique son drum ou son band (haha). À part la musique, elle aime le sport (mais elle nage comme une roche, quoiqu'on constate une amélioration depuis quelques semaines...bref) et les carrés au rice krispies. Elle aime les couleurs flyées et très flash, et on ne sait jamais si elle porte 14 chandails ou 17 (ce sera le mystère de l'été!). On termine avec une phrase qu'elle n'a pas dite: "Sans la musique, la vie serait une erreur...et tout le monde serait de bien mauvaise humeur". Devinez de qui est la dernière partie? Haha!!! La musique lui donne plein d'énergie et tout un sourire, alors attention, cet été ça va rooooccckkkeeerrrr!!!

D'autres choses qu'elle aime? Piano (instrument qu'elle joue), flûte de pan (instrument d'où vient sont nom), crème glacée, histoires, chansons de camp, faire des bigoux, nager, cuisiner des desserts délicieux et profiter du plein air. Pan est une vrai boule d'énergie et est très excitée à l'idée d'être monitrice cet été!

Le Tarzan des jungles avec les culottes en fourrure c'est du passé. Tarzan a cherché plusieurs années dans le monde moderne pour trouver une musique qui pourrait bien remplacer son tambour. Il a trouvé confort dans trois groupes : le rock, le punk et surtout le métal. Il a jeté son tam-tam par la fenêtre et s'est procurer une batterie qu'il a nommé "LA CAGE". Il vous coupera le souffe avec l'aide de son sens imbatable de rythme et son goût pour la chanson suprême. Maintenant qu'il a finit sa visite au Japon et en est sorti avec un diplome du secondaire du Québec et Américain l'année suivante, Tarzan est prêt à montrer un peu de ce qu'il est capable de faire!

Son énergie contagieuse et son imagination en ébullition n'attendent que l'été pour faire de nombreuses victimes.
My name's Coco because, well, because my friends call me Coco… and because one of my favourite holidays is Easter. There's no better gift than a chocolate bunny.

Not too long ago Grin was a simple pimple-faced high-school student barely able to hold a guitar. Also, he was a loner. This combination allowed him to have A LOT of free time to practice and become the token guitarist of his social group. Now that school's out (for summer), he no longer needs to juggle his studies with his many musical projects. Instead, Grin is pumped and ready to engineer the summer of a lifetime for all you Garage Band musicians.

And on that note, don't forget that the best ointments are made from roots!

As a young woman just getting out of high school, Sunshine is looking for NEW challenges. High School Diploma in hand, she's a passionate saxophone player who truly enjoys music and loves animals. So one day she decided that it would be a good idea to register on some inoffensive web site, you know, in order to find a summer job, AND BANG!... what did she see, you ask ? An ad for a day camp called Artemusik. Just the name was enough to make her fall off her chair! Picture it… a camp that embraces theatre, music and art!! “What a deal!” she said to herself. Her unstoppable energy, her weird songs that will, let's face it, probably annoy you, her sense of humour and her love for day camps… given the chance she could bring all this to face the challenge that she always dreamed of. And so it is on this note that she wishes you a wonderful summer and that she hopes she will be seeing you soon! =D !

And after 10 years singing in many different choirs, let's just say that choir singing is my passion too :) I like music, dance, cinema, literature....and sports!!! With Pirlouit this summer you are going to groove and move!
Ruffles is the name that my friends gave me back in high school, first because it sounds like my real name, so when someone yells "Ruffles!!!!", I respond naturally, and secondly because I keep eating all-dressed ruffles, so much so that one of my friends once asked me if I was a chip in another life, which actually would not be all that surprising!
Salsa is an energetic girl, full of fun, who loves to laugh and to make others laugh. Her interests lie in sports, arts, music et nature.

Full of energy and always on fire, Étincelle knows how to make a summer thrilling! At age fifteen, she was completely bewitched by the Broadway Camp that Artemusik offers and this year, she's back.

Imagine how dreary would life be without dance, music, theatre or Broadway!!!
Hello everyone! I'm Gumby, an alien from Garbeloui, a far-away planet in a far-away solar system. On my home world, it was getting way too crowded, so I skipped out into space (mind you, skipping and jumping are my fortes) and landed in the middle of Camp Artemusik. Thanks to my anti-grav hair (on my planet, gravity is reversed...), I can pass as human and amuse little kids. I can't wait to have fun with you. As we say on my world: 'Fedriet!!!' (See ya! :-) )

Jambo (hello) children! I love children and I also really love mangos, after all, they remind me of Africa... one of the coolest places I have ever been. This summer I hope to eat many mangos with you in the hot summer sun, under a nice big tree. Maybe we could also dance and sing like they do in Africa; music is in the heart and soul of the African children. Is it in yours? I am sure it will be after a couple of weeks at Camp Artemusik!
It has been a real secret that Secrète was someone totally hyperactive. Tall and slim as a spaghetti poeple may have thought that she was discreet and quiet.

Everyone calls him Jase, since they never have time to say his full name before he's gone to something else. Always on the move and full of energy, he loves working with kids, who are the only ones who can keep up with him. When he does slow down, it's usually to play his guitar; he lets fingers do the walking, giving his feet a much-needed break.
Hi! I'm PopOrange! It's been my name ever since my friends pointed out that I dressed like an orange popsicle: a long orange tee-shirt (my favourite colour) with stick-legs below to walk on! Heehee!!! This name also symbolizes creativity and energy. I love team-sports, techno music, drawing and painting. And when your goofing around with your friends, and you laugh out loud, everyone can see the orange mark on your tongue left by your popsicle... I love it! Get to know me, for I remain a mysterious character, filled with surprises. But don't worry: PopOrange has never bitten anyone...yet!
Hi everyone! I know you must think it's odd that i chse a colour for my nickname, but i find it the most fitting since red represents everything that I am! It actually derives from the name Big Red that was given to me in high school because my hair was red and I'm very tall, but now I use it more to describe my fiery and outgoing personality! It is the colour of Canada and also MY favourite colour! I adore working with kids and I love all kinds of art, so put the two together and yo get Camp Artemusik! YAAA! Hope to see you soon!J

Everyone knows her for her sense of humour, her patience and her enthousiasm towards all projects! If you want to have fun this summer look for Bambi!
Cassis, with her hair as curly as a telephone cord, was born with a real passion for art. Already at the age of two, she was creating works of art on walls and furniture. At the age of four, she was dancing and doing arabesques on the sofa. (That poor sofa ended up at the city dump.) In her earliest years at school, Cassis was cracking everyone up. As she got older, she took many drama, dance and art classes. One morning, while eating her daily peanut butter sandwich (or was it ‘Peanut' butter'!?!), she heard a voice say to her: ‘why not become a camp counsellor at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp?' She jumped on the boat and it was an unbelievable and unforgettable summer! This year Cassis returns for a second summer at the Artemusik Camp. She can hardly wait! It'll be great!! xxx
Crunchie is the perfect name for me, because I love chocolate and I love to eat!!! During classes I always have a Crunchie in my hands and in my mouth... Heehee... Also, I think it suits ma personality: it sounds funny, it's filled with bubbles (lol!!!!) and everyone knows that chocolate is full of energy!
Perfection can exist, as long as time and effort are given. This device is one of Girouette's, a totally perfectionist girl. Beside all the hours she spends studying, Girouette always has time to train on her bike and even some more to play piano. She has played for eleven years and by the time, she became friends with Chopin. But what Girouette likes best is reading stories, playing outside and laughing herself out. She loves kids because seriously, she is still one of them. Sometimes serious, she becomes goofy at the right moment, and this summer will be the perfect occasion. Always extreme, girouette loves changes, and fiery discussions. But what she likes best is helping people and making sure they enjoy themselves at all times.
Peek-a-boo! My name is Clarinette, but as surprising as this may seem, I don't play the clarinet. But I love music very much and I play the piano; in fact I love it and play very often. Right now I am studying human sciences in Cégep, but last summer I worked as a counsellor at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp and I had a lot of fun. That's why I'll be counsellor again this summer, but this time at the Artemusik Camp! I can't wait to get to know you: you'll see, we'll spend an unforgettable summer together! :-)
Lux is our resident gymnast, always with her head upside down! Full of energy, Lux loves being with kids and knows how to have fun while keeping her head cool and a watchful eye on her whole group. In other words, with Lux it's safe to let loose! Last year, at the McGill Conservatory of Music Day Camp, she was in charge of the 4- to 6-year-olds. But since she has now outgrown them (!), this year at the Artemusik Camp, she'll be part of the 8- to 15-year-old team.
Two years ago, at the very last minute, Nénuphar was swept up by an enormous wave and landed on our director Peanut's doorstep, thus leaving her friends behind in her lovely romantic pond… Luckily, she has since met many more and all of them are a riot! She also encountered these strange creatures called ‘children'… A student in health sciences, Nénuphar often cracks her classmates up by sprinkling a few giggles over their study sessions in the school library. She can't wait to see all of her wee friends again, and to meet many more. Nénu awaits you and most importantly, don't leave your giggles at home!!!
Pissenlit embodies energy, songs and non-stop activities. Always in top shape, Pissenlit never lets her group get bored: we have two minutes to spare? Ok then, let's sing a song while dancing on one foot!!! We forgot our ball? Not to worry, we'll play imaginary skip rope! The best part of all this? The kids love it and keep coming back for more!!! Another fun-filled summer on the horizon!
