It's nearly Summer! Time to organise your children's summer camp schedule...
We'll be running our ever popular Music Summer Camp again this year. The camp includes a huge variety of musical activities - from rhythm games and group singing to making our own instruments, and from yoga to analysing orchestral works.
The main aim of our jam-packed camp programme is to find the fun in developing all the skills needed to become your best musician, and getting the chance to meet other enthusiastic junior musicians while you're at it!
This camp will be repeated weekly throughout July and August. Incidentally, we always have a number of people who partake in multiple weeks of the camp and rarely feel they repeat much. Although the format of the camps and their basic structure is the same for each of the weeks, we do find that it's the mix of camp-goers who make each week quite individual!
The dates are: July 3-7, 10-14, 17-21, 24-28, July 31-Aug 4 and Aug 8-11 (this is a four day camp - €90 - as the Monday is a bank holiday) and Aug 14-18. The camps run from 9 am-2 pm each day, Monday to Friday and are priced at €110. We offer sibling/friend/multiple week discounts as well!
