Morning mini camps are music exploration camps, and will involve a range of instruments and musical activities, crafts and more. Afternoon mini camps are piano/keyboard camps. Please check the camp description for the intended age/skill range, and contact Donna Metler (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. Students can do one or both sessions each week, and may stay between the two camps if doing both. Students doing both should bring a lunch and drink each day.
Each mini camp session is $95. Second session for the same student is $85
