Violin, Viola & Cello Camp
Study with professionals. Fall in love with music. Experience the fun.
StringTime is perfect for 7-12 year old students who want to try violin, viola, or cello without getting locked into an instrument rental or long-term commitment to lessons. StringTime is also perfect for students with a range of prior experience; those who have played in school to those who are in Suzuki books 1-3 or play at VBDOA Grades 1-2. Our teachers use a flexible curriculum to ensure all students are challenged and inspired. Students will receive private lessons, learn music theory and history, compose their own pieces, and play in small and large ensembles. They will have fun playing games and activities designed to reinforce what they are learning.
The concert is the most exciting part of camp! StringTime students will perform a full recital on a real stage in front of a live audience. We celebrate their hard work with a reception at the end of the show. All are invited!
Our students will not only learn how to play an instrument: they will fall in love with music. We choose music that kids will enjoy and tailor our curriculum to fit their needs. Every day our faculty will perform for the students, instilling the belief that classical music is beautiful, unique, and relevant.
"I would highly recommend StringTime. My daughter is a total beginner with the violin. She learned an impressive amount in one week. She came home happy every day, thrilled to show us everything she'd learned. Lourdes and the team of teachers are very competent and create a beautiful atmosphere for learning. They ensure that children of various musical levels are all challenged and encouraged in their skills. By the end of the week of camp, the children had prepared a truly lovely 30 minute concert in company with the teachers. This program is worth every penny!"
