Music Safari Camp

Ages: 5 - 10
Session Length: One Week
Skill Level: Beginner and Up

music-safari-camp

Is your child interested in beginning music lessons, but isn’t sure what to play? Music Safari Camp is an ideal setting for young children to be introduced to musical instruments.

During this week of musical exploration, campers will engage with several families of instruments including strings, winds, brass, percussion, and keyboard. Campers will experience the instruments through hands-on learning and participate in musical games and crafts. This camp is a great opportunity to discover which instruments your camper connects with before investing in private instruction. Previous musical experience is not required.

Session I: Ages 5 - 6

June 17, 2024 - June 21, 2024

Session II: Ages 7 - 10

July 8, 2024 - July 12, 2024


Inclusion options and supportive programming may be available to assist students/campers. Please call The Music Settlement's Center for Music Therapy at 216-421-5806 ext. 104 or email us to discuss whether a program and/or camp has the potential to be a successful experience for your child. The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship is not an eligible fund for any camp at The Music Settlement. (This fund may be used for music therapy services.)
