Mini Art and Music Camp - Ages 4-6

Every camp week begins with a goal writing session, which makes each camp week unique to the students goals. The options campers get to choose from include piano, drums, vocals, songwriting, recording, theory, ukulele, and digital music. Each camp day is balanced out with a combination if music, movement and art. Craft projects such as theory books, and wooden pianos are really fun.
