Camp Description

Our Discovering Strings and Art Camp is a great way to introduce your elementary student to all that music and visual art have to offer. With a focus on violin or cello, students will lay the foundation to play an instrument – it’s amazing what skills they can learn in just one week! Ignite their creativity and strengthen academic skills with a wide variety of fun activities including singing, music and movement, an introduction to each member of the string instrument family, painting, collage, collaborative 3D projects, and more. Each day we will enjoy open recreation time with games and integrative S.T.E.A.M. activities, allowing your budding artist to experience all the advantages that the arts have to offer. Families can share in the fun at the Camp Concert and Showcase, held on the final afternoon of each session.

All are welcome and there's no experience necessary to join in on the fun! This camp experience will start kids off on a creative journey in music and art that will last a lifetime.

Instruments for Discovering Strings Camp are generously provided by the Baroque Violin Shop. Student and parent/guardian are responsible for any damage caused to the instrument due to neglect, lack of proper care/maintenance, or mistreatment. During registration, you will be asked for your child’s arm measurement for violin or chest measurement for cello or both if you select either instrument! Follow directions for taking the correct measurements here:

The students will showcase what they have learned and created this week in a mini-concert on the last day of camp. The showcase will begin at 3:00 p.m. More information will be sent out the week of the camp.

Our camp follows the philosophy of the Suzuki Method for teaching string instruments. Arts+ boasts the largest Suzuki program in the Charlotte area! Learn more about the history and principles of the Suzuki Method or learn more about Carolina Suzuki Strings.
