This camp is designed for students entering grades 6-8 in the fall of 2021 with at least one year of playing experience. Students younger than grade 6 in the fall of 2021 may enroll, but parents should carefully consider whether the student is sufficiently independent to handle a hands-off online learning environment. Students entering grade 9 who are less advanced and feel they are not ready for the Online Camp may also register. Students should have quality equipment available to them at home.
In addition to the technology requirements detailed below, students will need the ability to print music (or view on a tablet or monitor separate from the device used for ZOOM). Music for sessions will be provided. For those performing in the solo masterclass, you will need to have a prepared solo or etude of your own choosing, and may need to provide a scanned copy prior to the start of camp.
To facilitate a successful camp, students will need to be able to meet baseline technology requirements. Students should use a laptop or desktop computer for ZOOM for the best results. While you may use a Chromebook, tablet, or phone, your experience will not be as good. Instructions will be sent for specific audio settings to adjust prior to the start of camp. While you will get the best experience using headphones, this is not required. You will receive suggestions for setting up your space prior to the start of camp.
Any student who wishes to perform in the Masterclass should have a reliable external microphone. If you do not have one, there are some quality budget options available, such as this one.
Tuition is $150 for those who register before June 5, and increases to $175 on or after June 5. Tuition includes access to all sessions and provided materials. Additionally, you will receive a camp t-shirt, mailed to you. You will receive instructions for paying tuition online once your registration is confirmed (see below). Those who register before May 30 and are wait-listed and later accepted to an open slot will pay tuition based on their date of original registration. Tuition will refundable, minus the cost of shirt and postage if already ordered, up to seven days prior to the start of camp. Within 7 days of the start of camp, the balance of tuition will be refunded only if we are able to fill your slot with another student.
Registration is limited to 20 students to ensure a quality experience for everyone involved, and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
