Eligibility and Camp Size: This day camp is designed for students who are at least 8 years old and have completed the 3rd Grade.  In order to give every camper adequate attention, enrollment will be limited to 8 students.

Mission:   The mission of the UCM String and Keyboard Exploration Day Camp is for students to have fun while getting acquainted with string instruments, acquiring some basic keyboard skills, and learning about the general elements of music via an interactive composition project. Previous experience with string instruments or piano is NOT required; however we will be happy to take campers who do have previous experience. Activities will be tailored to make the most of every camper’s abilities. Please describe any previous experience in the spaces provided so that we may plan accordingly.

Cost: $100. Checks should be made payable to “UCM Community Music Program”

Instruments:  All instruments will be provided for the week at no cost to campers! We are very grateful to Meyer Music, of Blue Springs, MO for their generous donation of instruments and t-shirts.
