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.

About our Music & Art Program
Camp meets four days a week, for 3 hours a day. Designed for children ages 3-5 years, each day students have extended time 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 in their areas of interest, as well as have the space to try new things in our encouraging environment.
During the program 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.
In addition to music, 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.
