Summer Programs

Our summer music programs are a fantastic blend of world-class music instruction with a hometown community feel. We offer several options for musical instruction in the summer:

  • Instrument lessons
  • Week-long music camps
  • Weekly classes, which meet the same day each week throughout the summer
  • Engaging drop-in classes offered several times (but different each time)

We also add fun and unique “camps” with a special twist: we partner with the other arm of our organization, the Colorado Music Festival, in a musical and educational collaboration you won’t find anywhere else. Look for information and class descriptions to be announced in late-February to early-March.
