Introductory violin camp for children without any, or limited experience. WE LOAN A VIOLIN (or other instrument of choice) TO YOUR CHILD FOR A WEEK! This year’s leading instructor is Klaudia Thibault on violin. Variety of instruments introduced at the camp: viola, cello, double bass, guitar, drums, piano, harp. Professional instructors will participate in delivering the knowledge in a fun way.
Klaudia’s Music Studio has been providing Violin Introductory Music Camp for young children since 2006. Students explore which instrument they like, try to play it, get familiar with classical music as well as rock trends through informative instruction and interesting activities. Program is specifically designed for children without musical experience, but also for those who already play an instrument and would like to try a new one. This informative educational program is beneficial for all children, with or without musical background.
Daily program includes notes reading, musical games, discovery of history of music, and the most important component – playing VIOLIN and all the other instruments. All efforts are directed to the goal of performing on stage at the mini-concert on Thursday or Friday. Students with previous musical experience can pick a new instrument for a week and keep it for the whole week. All campers from previous years are welcome back! Our spacious beautiful air-conditioned location with natural day light offers a great environment for learning.

“My daughter loves your camp so much she made me arrive at least 20 minutes in advance every day, so she doesn’t miss a thing. After last year’s camp, she joined it again this year – twice, and she enjoys it tremendously. Thank you. I think we will sign up for violin lessons this coming up season.”
“Guitar and drum presentation was one of the best features of this camp. Besides all other instruments, my son started to love guitar and cello. He was so excited to come back every day for the camp! Thank you for this opportunity. We would not be able to decide what instrument is right for him if it wasn’t for your camp.”
“More parents should know about your camp and Junior program. I would sit through it for hours if I could. You make it interesting and it is amazing how much you cover!”

” … thanking you for the wonderful summer violin camp you provided. Our son started the camp very interested in the violin and completed the program being able to play 4 songs. He also enjoyed learning about the history of the violin and how it works. We now look forward to continuing with lessons in the fall.”

“Klaudia quickly developed a very strong rapport with our children.
Through her dedication to music education Klaudia conveys her knowledge
and love of music to her students. Our kids’ experience has been fun,
educational and their appreciation of music will surely last a lifetime.”
