Register Here For the 2019 Summer Camps!
During the month of August we are having three camps. A Guitar camp, a Voice camp, and a Drum camp. The camps are designed to provide a valuable and super fun experience for your kids. You don’t have to have any experience to sign up. There will be multiple teachers and the kids will be separated into two groups: experienced and not experienced.
The groups will start together everyday and be sub-divided based on interest with different musical activities to pick from in different rooms at the studio. All kinds of fun games will take place during the camp. These games are designed to help your kids enjoy music and realize it’s not just work.
By the end of the camp we will have a group performance. The songs we play will have multiple parts. The most basic parts will be available for beginners. Some parts will challenge even the greatest player/ singer. Those parts will be performed by the teachers if no one else is able. Either way it gives a huge spectrum of choice for the kids to pick from and can challenge even the most experienced students!
The camps run 2 pm to 5 pm
The above camps are:
-Great for beginners who wanna learn to sing or play!
-Great for players who wanna learn to sing or for singers who wanna learn how to play an instrument!
- Great for advanced students who wanna push their skills to the next level!
Our goal is to have every student leave the camp never wanting to stop playing or singing.
