Summer Music Sampler

Young kids at music camp

For Young Kids

Children ages 5-8 will experience a fun-filled introduction to the world of music in this dynamic program. Each day, students will have hands-on experience with a different musical instrument: piano, guitar, cello, violin, and voice. An instructor specializing in each instrument area will guide students through engaging activities and games to give them their first taste of being a musician. It’s a great way to find out what interests them most!
