If your child enjoys playing music, this is a phenomenal camp. My daughter LOVES this Music Camp. She had her favorite week of the summer there last year and created the most amazing music she's ever made! She didn't know anyone when she arrived, and the staff made her feel so at home and at ease that every day was an exciting day for her.
The camp is run by 2 wonderful Bay Area musicians and music teachers, and takes place at Ashkenaz! What a kick for the kids to get so at home there!
The Concert Show on the last day was inspirational, as all the kids were so proud to show off their band and songs - which we still play and dance to in our living room!
I highly recommend this music camp - and my daughter can't wait until next time! -Scott
this is a review of the Performing Arts Camp led by Eve Decker and Lisa Zeiler held just two weeks each summer. they are dedicated teachers and very cool musicians. my kids, age 16 and 18 now have been attending since they were 10. this is the only music camp they enjoy-and we have tried several others. it is around 26 hours a week, but has a lot of carpooling. the kids arrange themselves, sometimes with help, into groups around a song/band/genre. then look for others to round out the sound. there is a performance, really good energy and FUN on Friday, and each kid performs in about 3-5 songs. there is mostly covers of rock and roll, but also pop, indie, rap, metal, original music, country, soul. kids have to bring an instrument (unless they are vocalists) and as well as guitars, keyboards, and drum sets we have seen mandolins, saxaphones, ukeleles,violins, percussion of all sorts and other amazing instruments. every year there is a different mix of ages, but it has always worked out well for us. the kids are very supportive of each other. this is a great way to start the summer. you can get camp info from firstname.lastname@example.org Dotty
Does anyone have feedback on the summer performing arts camp that meets at Ashkenaz and culminates in a Friday performance there? My son is 14, will be entering high school next year, and is concerned that the kids in the group will all be younger. parent of musician
