 "You have found a magical person; Casey is by far one of the best and most talented music teachers out there!"  ~ parent of three students

Our summer 2021 small-cohort half day programs allow for a 4 to1 student to staff ratio, offering each child plenty of attention and musical support while still building a cohesive and creative group experience!

Summer half day programs are inside in an open area with open windows, A/C, and ultra-HEPA air filtering (to 0.003 microns). Masks will be worn inside, but snacks breaks and activities will be moved outside whenever practical. A full list of health protocols will be provided to prospective participants.

You can attend the morning, afternoon or both sessions. There is no extra charge for the supervised time between sessions.

Join us for this one-of-a-kind experience that will get your creative juices flowing! Our small summer morning cohort will spend the week weaving music, art and storytelling into an end-of-week performance.

Campers will work at their own level with the building blocks of music – rhythm, melody, harmony and texture – while learning to improvise, play by ear, and create stories with music and art.

For: All kids age 7-12 who play piano or a string instrument (including guitar), and have had a few months or more of lessons

Maximum enrollment: 8 students 

Time: M - Th 9:00 - 12:45; Fri 9:00 - 1:00 including performance for families @ 12:30

Tuition: $325  

Fiddling for String Players - half day afternoons

Three spots left

If you can violin/viola/cello/bass/guitar you can fiddle! String at all levels from near-beginner up can join, and will be able to participate at their own level.  

You’ll meet the repertoire and styles of different fiddle traditions including Irish and Scottish, American and more, and learn fun fiddling techniques like the chop, double chop, waterfall, wiggle and flick!

You’ll play creative musical games, and experiment with open-ended, curious ways of playing that seek to “see what happens” musically, rather than trying to reach a preconceived result.

For: All kids age 7-12 who play violin, viola, cello, bass, or guitar, and have had a few months or more of lessons

Maximum enrollment: 8 students

Time: M - F 1:30 - 5:00, including Friday performance for families @ 4:30
