2023-24 Music Camps! $400/Week

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 sequential curriculum where with each week of participation students learn the next musical level. With 15 hours of playing and performance each week, many campers achieve in one summer 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 musical improvement with the support of our expert teachers and staff within a week of a camp, and enjoy a showcase concert every Friday demonstrating what they’ve learned. Campers leave with a feeling of accomplishment, a stronger love and understanding of music, and new friends.
