Music Class

Music Explorers Camp


Music Explorers Camp at SMAA is a pathway for children ages 6-12, with no music/instrument experience, or for early beginners to explore different instruments such as piano, violin, cello, recorder/flute, guitar; develop basic musical and rhythmic talents; and nurture a passion for learning, playing, and singing music. No previous music experience is necessary to enroll as a Music Explorer. Early beginners currently taking music lessons also make excellent Music Explorers. Our expert instructors will group campers with other children of similar ages and levels upon arrival. Your child can bring their own instrument or use school provided instruments.

Music Explorers Camp is held at our safe, spacious, and comfortable Progress Drive location near Westover Elementary School and Lione Park, and is available on 7 select weeks in June, July and August which are outlined on the registration page. Camps run Monday-Friday from 9:00am-3:00pm on the designated weeks. Early drop-off and late pick-up options are available as add-ons. Continuous supervision is provided.
