If your child is already involved in music during the school year, here are 4 reasons to tune into a music camp this summer.

  1. Improve music skills: Summer camps inspire students to dig deeply into their instrument or voice study and learn to play in new ways. It’s energizing to master new skills and play at a higher level in just one week.
  1. Exposure to new, high-caliber teachers: Some music camps feature teachers who are well-known performers or are trained experts on their instruments or voice.  By working with an exceptional teacher, students learn faster which motivates them to play more often.
  1. Try a new genre: Summer is the perfect time to branch out beyond the band, orchestra, or choir room and try a rock band, jazz combo or hip hop group. Many summer camps assemble musicians of similar abilities into bands and combos that perform a live concert after just five days!
  1. Find your people: There’s nothing more fun for a music-loving student than finding other people who share a passion for music!  At a summer music camp students who love composing, songwriting, classical or rock music can make friends with people just like them.
