Summer Music Camps 2015

 
Early-Bird 10% Discount Registration Deadline is Friday, May 29th.
 

While learning about musical instruments and basic musicianship skills, our campers also learn about the music of a nonwestern culture. For camps in 2014, we will be exploring the music of Africa and each camp will make an instrument of Africa. These instruments will range from the thumb organ to the xylophone and talking drum.
