Summer Music Camps

Summer Music Camps

summer music camp detroitGrosse Pointe Music Academy will host weeklong summer music camps for beginning to intermediate students age 9–17. Besides having fun, Grosse Pointe Music Academy summer music camps are designed to keep students actively involved in playing their instruments throughout the summer months.

Many students will put their instruments away from the summer, and that is a big mistake. Musicians practice year ’round because it’s necessary—and fun! Beginners will benefit strongly from being in a camp environment with students of mixed abilities, and class activities will be differentiated in order to provide a fun and challenging environment for all skill levels.

Each week of camp will start at 10 a.m. and go through 3 p.m., Monday–Friday. Students will need to bring their own lunch, plus shoes and clothing appropriate for outdoor play. Available summer music camp weeks in Grosse Pointe include:
