Discovering Strings Camp

JUNE 14 - 18 + AUGUST 2 - 6

Camp Description

Discovering Strings Camp is all about exploring the violin! Open to children ages 4 - 7 with no prior violin experience as well as those who have just started their studies.

Discover the world of music through learning the violin with our always popular Discovering Strings camp! This is a great camp for new students or students with some experiences -- students who have never played before will enjoy a fun introduction to the world of string playing, while students with some experience on their instrument (Pre-Twinkle) will attend classes designed to grow their fundamental skills.

The day is filled with exploring the foundations of their instrument, movement classes, listening games, and visual art activities. On Friday, we will showcase all that we have learned for family and friends. Come discover how incredible it is to make music!
