Each camp will be staffed by multiple teachers, camp leaders, group leaders and helpers, all of whom are specialists in various aspects of music. Our teachers are carefully selected to facilitate the widest range of musical experiences, from multi-instrumentalists to conductors, rock musicians to composers, choral singers to operatic soloists.
