Our classes will be held primarily at Moreau Center for the Arts (#4 on map) located on the southwest side of the campus (#25 on the map). It is a beautiful campus with a retreat-like feel.

     Activities will include private and semiprivate lessons, master classes, group classes for beginning, intermediate & advanced levels, solo recitals, note reading/rhythm training, chamber music and final concert open to the public. We will also have a hoedown so plan to wear cowboy/cowgirl outfits.


Recitals -  Each student will have the option to sign up for and play in one recital during the course of the week. This event is a favorite activity for many of the students. Students who would like to play in a recital, prepare a solo with their teacher and bring a copy of the piano accompaniment to camp. Each student will be assigned a recital date which will be included in your registration packet. You will be able to sign up for a practice time with the accompanist at orientation.

Chamber Music for Advanced Students - This program is available to students upon recommendation of their private lesson teacher. Students will be assigned to ensembles, which will rehearse daily. They will prepare chamber music selected specifically for them based on their registration information. If your teacher has a question about the requirements have him or her contact Debbie Barker.

What To Bring -

  • Violin, your music, piano accompaniment for solo, and a music stand.
  • Black pants for boys, black skirts for girls, black shoes, and white dress shirts. White socks or tights for the younger girls, nude nylons for older girls and black socks for the boys. This is the concert attire for the week.
  • Cowboy and Cowgirl hats and clothing for the hoedown.
  • Swimming Suits and Beach Towels.
