Huckleberry Music Camp - June 30th - July 7th, 2018
Welcome to Huckleberry Music Camp. Huckleberry Music Camp prides itself on the ability to bring together senior, junior and Suzuki players for a week filled with music.
The senior students have a rigorous schedule to further their solo, chamber and orchestral experience. For some, this is a first-time opportunity to perform in an orchestra or play in a string quartet. For others, this is a time to further their musical education and have lessons with our experienced teachers. Huckleberry Music Camp has chamber coaching, master classes and orchestral rehearsals. Chamber music is an integral part of the camp. All students may perform a solo work of their choosing at the end of the week.
With our world-class faculty, many of the senior students find that by the end of the week they are encouraged and enthusiastic about their playing.
The junior students are involved in many of the same programs as the seniors. They perform in a junior orchestra, take part in junior ensembles. For the junior students, the experience of watching the seniors perform is vital so they may see what can be accomplished in a few years with dedication and perseverance. Also, their parents can see the result of the hard work their children have put forth in the various concerts given by the junior students.
Huckleberry Music Camp is particularly appropriate for Suzuki students and their families. For the students, it's a perfect opportunity to begin or further their musical journey with a string instrument of their choice. They are involved in a number of Suzuki programs, including private lessons ,group lessons and reading classes or orchestra. More advanced players will have the opportunity to perform in a chamber music ensemble, and are encouraged by their peers. They have a chance to see what music making is all about. Some Suzuki parents take lessons themselves. Our teachers in the Suzuki program are especially trained in the Suzuki method of teaching.
