2022-23 Music Camps!

Of all the things to do during school breaks in Los Angeles,
why is music camp an excellent choice for your children?

Santa Monica Music Camp provides a progressive curriculum where with each week of participation students always learn the next musical level. With 15 hours of playing and a performance each week, many campers achieve in one summer (9 weeks) what would take them years to accomplish in a once or twice weekly school class.

Music camp is also a great way to introduce and explore different instruments, to get a first-time introduction to playing and performing music, and in general a way to inspire kids to develop a musical talent they might not know they have. After many years of fine tuning our methodology and camp day, Santa Monica Music Camp Has become a uniquely organic way to nurture a lifelong love of music.

At Santa Monica Music Camp, your child will enjoy playing music 3 hours per day plus a music theory class, all in a 6-hour summer camp-style environment that includes outdoor play, sports, movie time, arts and crafts, electives, and healthy snacks.

Expect great improvement in your kid/s with the support of our expert teachers and staff within a week of a Camp, and a showcase concert every Friday demonstrating what they’ve learned. Campers leave with a feeling of accomplishment, a stronger love of music, and new friends.
