Course Description

*UPDATE: Summer Strings has been canceled in accordance to City of Berkeley and Alameda County shelter-in-place ordinances.

June 29 to July 10
Monday through Friday, 9am to 3pm

Spend two fun weeks in our camp designed for beginning- to intermediate-level violin, viola, and cello players! Complete beginners are welcome! Each student receives one private lesson, and participates in a variety of activities, including an all-camp string ensemble and all-camp chorus, outdoor play, arts & crafts, and music games. Intermediate-level participants are placed into chamber ensembles or group classes; placement in a group is based on a required entrance interview or audition.

Placement interview required, except no audition necessary for students with less than six months of experience.
