About the Camp

Junior camp is an exploratory camp that introduces instrumental music to students in 3rd  - 5th grade who have no experience playing an instrument.  The students will have group classes in rhythm drumming, guitar, and violin. Students also sing and study the basics of music theory, such as rhythms, key signatures and note values.
