SUMMER 2019 FAQs

What’s Different About Your Summer Camp This Year?

  • Camp hours are extended an extra hour and a half! With drop off as early as 8:00AM each day and pick up this year is at 3:30PM! Our first master class of the day kicks off promptly at 8:30AM each morning! We’ve added more time to make room for more music programming each day!
  • LOTS of guitar instruction! Students receive group guitar lessons 5 days a week! Our older campers in grades 3 through 6 (based on enrollment) will take our ETI class daily: which focuses on more advanced Ensemble work, Technique and Improvisation.
  • All campers will have an additional, ensemble based music class, 5 days a week called “World Music Jump and Jam Session.” These are daily 45 minute jam sessions incorporating guitar, percussion and movement! We are developing our students sense of rhythm, giving them an opportunity to work together as a band, and celebrating the outcome of creative cooperation!
    • We have found that our campers crave informal down-time to rehearse and jam together, and we love that! So we have built that special time into the day!
