Summer Instrumental Music Camps

The following are some summer music camp offerings for instrumental musicians that are recommended by myself and/or others:

MESA VERDE MIDDLE SCHOOL SUMMER MUSIC PROGRAMJuly 10 – 14
Disciplines served: Band, orchestra, jazz
MVMS Summer Music Camp flyer
Open to the public, not just MVMS students, and to all students that have just finished 6th grade or higher.  This school has an exemplary music program, and I would expect the same from its summer music camp.

SUMMER JAZZ WORKSHOP: July 10 – 15
Disciplines served: Jazz (alto/tenor/bari sax, trumpet, trombone, bass, guitar, piano, drums)
Summer Jazz Workshop website
A great experience for young jazz cats to learn from highly-regarded local jazz artists that culminates in a concert at House of Blues in downtown San Diego!  No prior jazz experience is necessary, just a desire to learn!

BAND AT THE BEACH: July 24 – 28
Discipline served: Band
Band at the Beach website
This is a local summer music camp that was established almost 30 years ago, and still continues to put on a great experience for middle and high school band students to this day.

COASTAL MUSIC CAMP: July 31 – August 5
Discipline served: Band
Coastal Music Camp website
For students entering 4th through 9th grades, beginners welcome!  Early registration discount offered until June 12th!

MIRA MESA SUMMER STRING CAMP: August 14 – 18
Discipline served: Orchestra

Camp information is not yet available on their website, so check it at least once per week if you’re interested in enrolling.  This one is HIGHLY recommended, and it’s so close to Scripps Ranch!
