This is our 17th year of two week programs for 7-14 yr. olds. Our program offers vocal coaching, theater games, acting, choreography, and finishes with a musical review for family and friends.
We limit each session to 30 kids, so each child can be featured rather than be stuck in the back of the chorus. The 2-week Camp sessions schedule is here for the 2017 summer season.
Thank you to all for another great summer!

We will strive to provide quality instruction delivered by seasoned professionals in an effort to raise the skill level of all of its participants to their personal best.
Vocal training is different from studying other musical instruments, mainly because your "vocal instrument" is part of your body. A student has to know how it feels to sing properly as much as how
it sounds. My goal is to give each student a solid foundation in vocal techniques, that they can apply to all the different styles of music. Lessons are divided between vocal exercise, technique development and coaching song performance. I work with each student to find songs that they will enjoy singing, yet are challenging enough to be of value in their musical development. Because I am a pianist and a musical director, students get the added benifit of working with an experienced accompanist.
As a piano teacher, my main goal is to keep students excited about playing, while developing the fundamentals of being a good pianist and musician. I do stress the importance of reading music, which I do through the use of the Alfred series of piano books which I like. I also give them a variety of pieces to play, from classical to pop.
