Singing Camp

Ready to let out your inner rock/pop/Broadway star? Students in this camp will learn the fundamentals of singing in both group and solo settings, from vocal technique and solfege to stage presence, improvisation and songwriting. This week-long program is a place for you to build basic music skills, self-confidence, and just let loose and sing! Family and friends are invited to enjoy a final concert at 1:30pm on the last day of camp.

Drum Camp

If you’ve had lessons or are new to drumming, this camp is for you! Designed to lay a solid foundation for aspiring drummers, campers will spend the week learning the fundamentals of playing the snare drum, drum set, and a few other percussion instruments. With a big focus on fun, the group atmosphere makes this camp a great way to learn to play.

Snare drum topics will include proper grip and playing position, basic stroke types, beginner drum rudiments, a few essential musical terms and some basic note reading. Drumset studies will focus on basic beats and fills, and applying them to campers’ favorite songs and music. A portion of each day will be spent learning a percussion piece to be performed as a group for family and friends at the final concert on the last day of camp at 1:30pm.

Ukulele & Guitar Camp

Total beginners and kids with some experience are welcome to join in for this week of strumming, picking, and singing fun. Just bring a guitar, or a ukulele, or both! We’ll work on some basic chords, try writing our own songs, and form our own bands. Family and friends are invited to enjoy a final concert at 1:30pm on the last day of camp.
