Summer 2021: We are re-opening our IN-PERSON Music & Art Program! The program is limited to 4 students and 1 teacher. See below for more details and registration!
Join our experienced early-childhood music teachers for a magical week of exploration and creation! Our camps engage and motivate young children to try new things as well as develop their skills and interests in music and visual arts. Scroll down to register for individual sessions!
Children ages 3-6 years have extended time each day playing the small-sized string instruments and piano, as well as exploring sound with other instruments including guitar, xylophone, and percussion instruments. A very high teacher/child ratio allows each child to work closely with our teachers each day in their areas of interest, as well as have the space to try new things in our encouraging environment.
Children learn beginning note-reading and writing and explore written symbols in music, allowing them to write their own rhythms and melodies. Improvisation, story-telling, movement activities, and recording are woven into the day.
We offer art experiences including drawing, painting, collage, and instrument and puppet making to encourage the development of fine motor, observation, and listening skills as well as develop self-expression and sequencing skills.

THEMES: Each week of camp usually has a theme, such as “Wind and Water”, “Outer Space”, “Carnival”, “The City”, etc. Sometimes we have the students help us decide on the theme for the week on the first day.
Our space allows us to run two camps in the morning (4 kids in each camp). Group A and Group B will follow the same program–the registration groups are designated in case you’d like your to sign up with a friend or sibling and ensure they are in the same group! Students from groups A & B will not mix. All teachers will be vaccinated. Covid protocols will be followed including mask-wearing, open windows, and air filters.
Use discount code “early bird” until June 1 for 10% off each week of camp! Siblings receive an additional 10% off.
