I’m a big believer in the benefits of attending a summer music camp--it’s a great place to immerse yourself in music learning with other highly motivated musicians. In addition, you can have a great time meeting new friends, enjoying the great outdoors and other activities depending on the camp. Here are some camps I recommend that I have either been part of or sent students to in the past:
Hayward-La Honda Music Camp - held in the redwoods at Camp Jones Gulch on the San Francisco peninsula. I occasionally do masterclasses for them and handle their website.
Cazadero - held in the redwoods near the Russian River.
Summer in the City - The SJSU School of Music & Dance summer camp for middle and high school students, held in June.
Silver Lake Band Camp - In the Sierras south of Lake Tahoe
For my students, let me know if you have any questions about these camps.
