FEST CAMP 2018 (ages 10-18)
The only Lehigh Valley summer camp that can take your music student from the classroom to a Musikfest stage!
Each young musician is arranged into bands with peers who match their experience, age and ability. (Students may request to be paired with friends, but the above criteria takes priority.)
A few weeks before the start of camp the students will have a brief, one hour meeting with their bandmates, agree upon a 3-4 song set list, then go home and start to work on their parts individually and with their private lesson teachers.
Once at camp, the students will begin the process of perfecting their songs with the help of a band coach. They will also work on songwriting skills in a daily workshop, and have the opportunity to write and perform an original song with their band.
Students participating in FEST CAMP must have a proficient understanding of their instrument, as they will be expected to learn their songs independently from camp – either at home or in private lessons with their weekly teachers.
