We are offering a variety of fun camps and classes this summer!   Sign up today to reserve your spot

Our age groups are general guidelines for the camps and classes.  If you have a child interested in a camp or a class that falls outside of their age, please give us a call to discuss whether it might work for them anyways. 

DIY MUSIC INSTRUMENT WORKSHOP: Ages 7-13

In this week-long workshop, children will have the opportunity to explore their creativity and learn about the science behind sound while making their very own musical instruments from scratch. From simple drums and shakers to more complex stringed instruments and wind instruments, there will be something for every musician to enjoy. 

Each day we will work on a different instrument, learning about the materials and techniques needed to create it. They will also have the chance to experiment with different sounds and pitches, and even learn how to play simple melodies on their handmade instruments.

At the end of the week, we will come together for a special showcase where children can proudly display their creations for their families and friends. It's sure to be a week full of fun, learning, and a whole lot of music!

Spaces are limited, so be sure to register early to secure your spot. We can't wait to make music with you! Location: MSOM. 9am-12pm.
