Why a Music House Summer Camp?
Students learn to think like actual musicians. An emphasis on musical interaction accelerates the development of listening skills.
Students collaborate with others while also thinking independently. Their musicality and confidence build as they learn to identify themselves as creative musicians.
Music House captures students’ attention by speaking the language of modern, relevant music. Students learn new skills by engaging in musical styles they already love.
Music House establishes lifelong musical engagement by teaching students how to learn — and how to articulate that learning process.
Why Music House?
Music House is a community that offers more than the traditional, isolated approach to teaching music. Students play together, perform on stage, and become part of something bigger than themselves.
