"Experienced Music Students" can learn a new instrument after lunch from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00pm.

Students with 1 year or less experience should come to the 9:00 a.m. session until our staff can work them. This will give the younger student more confidence.

Concerts are the last week of camp and are not mandatory but sure are fun!
