Summer Camp

Strings | Piano | Guitar

Children entering grades 3-9 in the fall at any experience level can study instrumental music and music theory. Secondary instruments are welcomed and encouraged. Students are free to try any string instrument they wish (including piano). They will have the opportunity to perform a solo or in an ensemble and young musicians are grouped by level to improve technique and musicality. Each student receives private lessons and performs in weekly concerts. String students perform in an orchestra and individually. Piano students perform individually and are welcome (and encouraged) to try a string instrument. Guitarists perform individually or in small ensembles. The students will sharpen their skills and learn new repertoire! We guarantee success amongst our students! Your child will learn the basics of the instrument they choose and will be able to perform solo, in a group setting, or both! Performances are not required, but they are encouraged!
