Summer Music Camp

Piano & Ukulele

for ages 6 to 10 years old

August 8 to 12, 2016

9:00am - 5:00pm

Is your child interested in learning to play the ukulele or piano? Then our Summer Music Camp is perfect for him or her. Perhaps they aren't sure which instrument to play or you would like them to try several before committing to one. With 5 days of intensive instruction campers will get a good foundation of music theory, graphic notation, and instrument instruction. Piano instruction and related percussion activities are in the morning and ukulele instruction and related string activities are in the afternoon. The student-teacher ratio is never more than 6 to 1 with a maximum of 12 campers and 2 teachers. We will also have several guest performers during the week. Campers are split into two groups for theory and instrument instruction and there are enough keyboards and ukulele's for each camper to have their own. You do not need to purchase any instruments for this camp but if you own a ukulele your child is welcome to bring it with them to camp.

 

Our camp is the week before many schools are scheduled to start their Fall session so that children can decide what they want to study in the Fall and get a head start on instrument lessons.  This also gives them the chance to make new friends and stay together as a group class during the school year. Group classes are fun, more affordable, and give children the opportunity to learn different parts and play with others. Summer students have priority registration for Fall whether they continue in group or private lessons.

Healthy snacks are served in the morning and afternoon but campers need to bring a bag lunch and a bottle of water with a sport top. Camp starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm but we will be open 15 minutes before and after for drop off or pick up at the request of working parents. Please contact the director if you need extra time. If your child has a food allergy or any delays or special needs we should be aware of please use the notes section of your registration form to tell us more about it. If their allergy is life threatening or they need special accomodations please contact the director personally at least 2 weeks before camp begins.
