Summer camps

We offer a beginner one week, 1/2 day camp and a high energy one week, full day, “Music Bootcamp” for experienced musicians.

1. Who is eligible for summer camps?

There is a short audition process for each camp. The half day camp is focused on kids 12 an under. The Music Bootcamp is aimed at teens and tweens. Most importantly, we focus on making sure we have compatible personalities in our summer camps. Musical aptitude is important, but an enjoyment of working with others and building a team is most important.

Please contact to set up an interview.

2. What do students do in summer camps?

Both camps focus on learning songs for two performances on the Friday of the camp.

Typically the 1/2 day camp bands will learn six songs to perform and the full day camp will learn 12-15 songs to perform.
