UpBeat Music Camp (6 weeks available in July and August)
Our week-long summer camps offers high quality music education and development, bringing youth a source of encouragement, discipline, and a sense of community. Students participate in games and team building exercises throughout the day. This is a great opportunity for beginners to try piano for the first time or experienced students to be inspired and grow as musicians.

Camps are structured for students to learn mainly on the piano, with optional electives in the afternoon including guitar, bass, voice, and art. Each day we take campers to the park for lunch, group games and free time for community building.

Music activities also include theory, ear training and performance. Interactive instruction keeps camp interesting, builds a team environment and gives students a strong musical foundation. Each camp culminates with individual performances and/or group concerts.

We also offer two special camp weeks:

Rock Band Camp (June 25–29 only)
Join a band and play songs you’ll love! Our Rock Band Camp is a exciting experience for youth that is centered around full-band rehearsals with professional musicians and instrumental/vocal breakouts for coaching from instructors. Our rock band camp help students understand and practice the art of collaboration, teamwork, and discipline in a fun and supportive setting. The week culminates in a concert on Friday.

Music Theater Camp (July 30–August 3 only)
Students can finally embrace their inner Broadway Star and spend a week at UpBeat’s Musical Theatre Camp! Through acting games, vocal exercises, and rehearsals, students will learn the fundamentals of performing musical theatre. Wrap up the week with a showcase, where students will perform an ensemble number and their own solo song!

Featuring songs and dances from: Wicked, The Great Comet, Hamilton, Fun Home, Matilda, Billy Elliot and MORE!
