Course Description

Summer Strings at The Royal Conservatory (RCM)

Summer Strings Camp focuses on providing a condensed week of instruction for violin, viola, cello, and double bass for students ages 4 to 17. There are four different camp options for students at various levels of playing ability. All levels incorporate the Suzuki approach.

Auditions for placement purposes are required for new students (not enrolled in the Oscar Peterson School) registering for Book 2 and Chamber & Orchestra Camp.

This one-week session is for very young students and their parents to begin string instruction in a group environment. This camp goes from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Auditions are not required for this camp.

SUZUKI BOOK 1 (Ages 5-8)

This one-week camp is designed to reinforce techniques and repertoire from Twinkle through the end of Book 2. The camp provides younger students with the ability to attend a 1/2 day session rather than participate in a full day of playing and camp activities. Classes will be arranged by level of completed repertoire. Auditions are not required for this camp.
Open to students ages 5-8 (as of July 1, 2023)

SUZUKI BOOK 2 (Ages 5-10)

This intensive one-week camp offers individual instruction, group instruction, reading class, enrichment activity and orchestra in a fun and engaging environment. 
Open to students ages 5-10 (as of July 1, 2023)


The Chamber and Orchestra Camp is designed for string students who are seeking a more intensive summer camp experience which includes individual instruction, group class, chamber music, enrichment activity and orchestra. Students will be grouped in chamber music based on their playing level and reading ability. Students should be in Suzuki Book 3 (or equivalent) and above. 
Open to students ages 8 - 17 (as of July 1, 2023)
