Discovering Strings Camp

Discovering Strings Camp is all about exploring new instruments! Open to children with no prior violin/cello experience as well as those who have just started their studies.

Camp Description

Discover the world of music through learning the violin or cello 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 the how incredible it is to make music!
