Summer Music Camps
& Guitar Camp
No Experience Required
StringTime is perfect for 7-12 year olds who want to try violin, viola, cello, or guitar without getting locked into an instrument rental or long-term commitment to lessons. 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. StringTime violin/viola/cello camp also provides a continuing track for those who have played in school, are already proficient in 1st-2nd positions, are in Suzuki books 1-2, or play at VBDOA Grades 1-2. Our teachers use a flexible curriculum to ensure all students are challenged and inspired.
StringTime provides a violin, viola, cello, or guitar for students to borrow for the duration of camp. We make it easy. Upon registering your child for camp, you will be instructed how to measure your child to ensure they receive the proper size. We teach the students how to take care of the instrument. Students have the option to take it home each day or leave it at camp.
Study with Professionals
All of our faculty members have performed on world-class stages such as Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Your children will enjoy faculty performances everyday. They will hear a variety of music from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary eras. They will also love hearing their favorite pop songs and movie themes.
Meet our Teachers
We've performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, traveled around the world to give concerts, studied with the best musicians alive, and won scholarships to competitive conservatories.
How did all this happen? Someone who cared let us try an instrument.
"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!"
