Violinists, violists, and cellists, all are welcome. And since we group students by both age and skill level, the CMC Atlanta String Camp is open to beginners and more advanced players.

CMC Atlanta String Camp provides beginners and more experienced players alike the opportunity to develop both playing skills and their understanding of musical concepts. Through a mix of private lessons and group activities, students will learn good technique, build their knowledge of the fundamentals of music, and tackle a couple of age and skill appropriate compositions. Camp includes a variety of group activities like singing, drumming, theory drills and projects, and indoor and outdoor games. The curriculum incorporates a survey of historical repertoire (from simple compositions most children learn to virtuosic masterpieces), projects that introduce important composers and famous performers, and live performances by CMC Atlanta Artist Resident Teachers.  Our young musicians are also engaged by both traditional and more contemporary uses of string instruments in classical, jazz, rock, and folk music.

Campers take private lessons with CMC Atlanta faculty.  For beginners, we gear the curriculum to laying a firm foundation to support the potential for ongoing study after camp. For more experienced players, we introduce new solo and collaborative pieces, more advanced musical concepts, and teach improvisation, a skill overlooked in many studios. When it comes to improvisation, even experienced students mostly start from scratch when they come to our camp, and most students enjoy having this world of artistic expression opened for them in an encouraging setting.

All CMC Atlanta Day Camps for Kids are sensitive to developmental needs of children. While the students are immersed in the world of strings at the camp, there are breaks throughout the day, play time at nearby parks, and fun activities to provide an appropriate balance, especially for summer.
