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, meaning each child to works with a parent or guardian at home between lessons. It is highly encouraged for a parent and/or guardian to accompany students to their camp classes.

Recordings for placement purposes are required for new students registering for Book 2 and Chamber & Orchestra Camp.
