BasiCamps are designed to introduce your child to a musical instrument and some basic knowledge of music notation. Each camp is one hour per week for six weeks and concludes with a short recital by the students. BasiCamps are designed for kids ages 9-11, but ask if your child is not in that range and you are interested. The tuition not only covers the camp, but also the instrument, AND the students get to keep it…forever!
All BasiCamps are held on Wednesday afternoons from 2:30-3:30 at Netherwood Park church of Christ. Check the details below for the specific dates of each class.
