A week of music camp can often be like a full 6 months of practice in terms of developing technique and musicianship.
I encourage families to consider a week of music camp! Below are some options:
June 21-August 15 Point Counter Point, Brandon, VT: Sessions for ages 11-18 (http://pointcp.com/point-counterpoint/)
June 22-26 Vermont Youth Orchestra Day Camp: (http://www.vyo.org)
June 28-July 3, July 5-10: Ithaca College Suzuki Camps (http://www.ithaca.edu/sacl/suzuki/)
July 12-17 Green Mountain Suzuki Camp, Rochester, VT: http://www.greenmountainsuzukiinstitute.org/2015.shtml
August 10-14 Camp Adagio at MCMC, Middlebury, VT (http://www.mcmcvt.org/camp-adagio.html) (ages 7-18, all instruments)
August 16-22 Point Counter Point Prelude ages 8-13 (http://pointcp.com/prelude/)
There will also be an orchestra at MCMC this summer! Ron White, a bassist from Brandon will be conducting an 8-week introduction to string orchestra in a fun and supportive group format, ending with a public concert. Ages: entering 4th – 6th grade running from June 15 – August 6 on Mondays & Thursdays from 9:00-11:00am. Registration for this will open soon on http://www.MCMCvt.org.
