Summer Music Camps FAQs

How do I register my student?

Go check out our camps here, and select the camp you want to take. Then, add to cart and complete the registration, making sure to add the student’s full name when prompted.

Who teaches your camps?

All of our teachers are local and highly involved in music education in the Castle Rock and Colorado Springs areas. We are so thrilled to be partnering with each of them! You can find specific details about each teacher in the “Meet our Teachers” section!

When/Where are your camps held?

Our camps run June-July, Monday-Friday for either 2 or 3 hours per day depending on age and the camp offered. They will be hosted at 65 Topeka Way, Suite 300, in Castle Rock, CO – the future retail storefront!

What ages do your camps span?

The age ranges are from 6-14.  Each camp has grade and experience tips to help parents know what class to sign up for. If you aren’t sure what level or type your student would enjoy, give us a call! We can help you make the right choice.

How much do your camps cost? Are their hidden fees?

2 hour camps cost $199 and 3 hour camps cost $299. There are no hidden fees! You can sign up easily through our website here. The only additional cost would be if you decide to rent an instrument through our Rent+ Program!

How many students will be in each camp?

We have purposefully kept camps to an 8-12 student maximum. We believe these smaller, concierge camps help students get private tutoring while also benefiting from peer collaboration. Each student gets one on one time with the teacher.

Will you be providing the instrument? What is provided?

All supplies will be provided except for the practice instrument. It is helpful to have an instrument to practice on at home and students should bring their instrument with them to camp! Students taking piano camp do not need to bring their keyboard to camp. If you don’t have an instrument, our Rent+ Program is low cost, month to month and you are not committed to a long term rental contract!

Are there refunds for camp fees?

Music Camp registration is nonrefundable, but we are willing to switch your camp dates, times or transfer your registration to another student. Call 303-663-4084 to make changes!

Why should my student participate?

Summer is a great time for a student to try something new or reinforce what they have been learning! When students keep playing during the summer break they grow their music skills, make new friends, reinforce concepts they might struggle with and don’t get rusty. They can make more progress, without the pressure of other responsibilities and homework, while truly enjoying their music. Summer camps relieve summer boredom!

What if my student is a beginner?

This is the perfect opportunity for them to try something new!  Our piano camps, rhythm cup camps and some of our band camps can be taken by total beginners.

Are your camps fun?

Yes! Music SHOULD be fun!! Each camp is formulated to be an enjoyable mixture of fun and learning. Our camps are not boring classrooms!
