PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The goal of this program is for your student to have a concentrated week of study improving what he/she knows and getting exposed to new areas of music. Campers will spend 2 hours each day rehearsing in their Performing Ensembles, where they will learn more about the technique and interpretation of Classical Music. Our goal is to make sure your child is learning, but at the same time having fun too! As a parent, this is a great way to nurture a love of music in your child. Surrounded by their peers, children feel comfortable trying out new things! The camp also provides a safe environment for our campers. Counselors are on hand to help them in their activities. And don't forget to save the date- we end camp with a concert where every camper performs with their class!
