Hear what Parents are saying: 

"My eight and nine year old kids recently participated in a day camp, and had a great time! The day was divided into several periods across various artistic disciplines...theater, dance, visual art, and music. My son was a bit reluctant before I dropped them off...not being as sold-out to all of these areas as my daughter is. But he thoroughly enjoyed his time...which I imagine is a testament to the engaging and creative staff. My kids have been taking music lessons at Music House for several years now, and we've always been incredibly happy with the caliber of instruction and the level of student expectations, balanced with the right amount of [genuine and not gratuitous] encouragement. The music instructors we have are very knowledgeable in their craft, quite skilled in developing students' knowledge and skills, and enthusiastic about sharing their love of music!"

"My children attended their Fine Arts Camp on a day off from school and they absolutely loved it! The diversity of activities from rock band to theater to art kept them engaged and entertained and when I came to pick them up they were very sad to leave. That's the sign of a good day. Thanks, Music House!"

"My 7 year old adores this camp and so do I! Great instructors, wonderful content and all at a super reasonable price!! Seriously a hidden gem!"

In violin class, students will learn from the Suzuki violin method. In ukulele class, students will learn to strum and sing songs in which they are familiar.
