Summer Music Activities

 

Recommended Summer Music Camps

SUMMER JAZZ WORKSHOP: July 9 – 14
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!

SAN DIEGO SUMMER MUSIC INSTITUTE: July 15 – 21
Disciplines served: Band, orchestra
SDSMI website
Billed as “San Diego’s elite summer music camp,” and I personally couldn’t agree more.  Students can stay at the dorms at SDSU, or commute from home each day.

MESA VERDE MIDDLE SCHOOL SUMMER MUSIC PROGRAM: July 16 – 20
Disciplines served: Band, orchestra, jazz
MVMS Summer Music Camp website
Open to the public, not just MVMS students, and to all students that have just finished 6th grade or higher.

BAND AT THE BEACH: July 23 – 27
Discipline served: Band
Band at the Beach website
This is a long-time local music camp that will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this summer!  New this year: the camp will now take place at Point Loma Nazarene University!

COASTAL MUSIC CAMP: July 30 – August 4
Discipline served: Band
Coastal Music Camp website
For students entering 4th through 9th grades, and beginners are welcome!  Save $75 by submitting an early registration! (last day for early registration is June 10th)

MIRA MESA SUMMER STRING CAMP: August 13 – 17
Discipline served: Orchestra
Mira Mesa Orchestras website
As of June 10, 2018, camp information is not yet available on their website, so check it at least once per week if you’re interested in enrolling.  Since the camp takes place so late in the summer, registration may not be available until near the end of the school year.  This one is so close to Scripps Ranch that it’s practically a no-brainer for string students!
