SUZUKI SUMMER STRING Camp

AGES 4-12

JUNE 24-28, 2019

The Suzuki Summer String Camp, now in its tenth year, offers fun and innovative classes that will keep young musicians motivated and engaged during the summer. Our course offerings for violin, viola and cello are built around the Suzuki method, and will give your child the opportunity to broaden and deepen their musical knowledge. Students must have at least 6 months of previous study on their instrument.

CAMP STRUCTURE

  • Semi-private lesson: Students will be grouped by age and level into a small group of 3-4 participants. Each student will get a mini-lesson with our experienced instructors, and have the opportunity to work on their solo repertoire. This is a great opportunity for students to learn from one another. Some students may be selected to perform a solo at our end-of-camp recital.

  • Large group lesson: Students will be grouped together by repertoire and work on pre-determined Suzuki pieces to perform at our end-of-camp recital.

  • Eurhythmics: A fun and active class that teaches an understanding of music's fundamental concepts, expressive meanings, and deep connections to other arts and activities. Students benefit from this approach which incorporates rhythmic movement, aural training and improvisation.

  • Orchestra: Intermediate level students will improve sight reading and ensemble skills in this fun group setting.

  • Violin fiddlers: Violin students will broaden their musical horizons and experiment with music from other genres.

  • Chamber Music: Intermediate students will benefit from this more intimate music making experience and improve their note reading and ensemble skill.

  • Note reading: Beginner students will have an opportunity to sharpen their sight reading and musicianship skills.
