2019 Summer Music Camps

Week-long music camps for the Curious, Emerging and Advanced musician. Ages 8-12. All levels are welcome!

Packed, fun, social days of tailored music instruction, where visiting symphonic artists immerse campers with all instruments of the orchestra. Daily workshops in singing, choir, composition, music theory, notation and sight reading. World history is discovered through the music of classical, pop, jazz and world sounds. Campers are paired according to their level, and our small 20 attendance limit is further divided by camper level:  Instructor, camper ratio is 1:7.

Advanced musicians receive tailored instruction (masterclasses) in musicianship and performance from visiting professional symphonic artists. Younger and non-musicians can also discover which instrument inspires them before the next school year: Strings, Brass, Percussion, Keyboard, Woodwinds! Experienced players will be able to return to private lessons at an improved level of sight-reading and musicianship.
