Kids’ Uke & Drum Camp
Nothing is more important than your child’s education – and studies show that participation in music can have a positive impact on a child’s academic and social lives. A musical Summer day camp can help your child gain the skills and confidence he/she needs to live a productive, creative and fulfilling life.
We believe that every child is musical – and it’s our mission to see that your child has a positive experience with music that will stay with him/her throughout a lifetime. Our developmental approach to community music making is based on creating an inclusive environment, helping everyone to cooperate with one another, and showing appreciation for everyone’s accomplishments. Children work together with their peers to create a pro-social culture of positivity!
