The 2019 Summer Music Camp (SMC) is a 3-week music day camp for 30 students ages 5 to 12 that will be held July 8-26 , 2019. The camp provides students with the opportunity to experience instrumental and vocal music for the first time. Through the work of teaching artists with the support of their assistants, students learn fundamentals, and simple tunes on violin, African drums, piano, a woodwind or brass instrument, and voice.

The camp meets Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 12:00pm each day and students receive free breakfast, lunch, and a snack. The camp culminates in a final performance that is free and open to the public at the Academy’s new performance hall at 760 Selby Avenue.
