2015 Summer Camps

SLAM-201505-Feature-SummerCamps

Summer is one of the best times of the year for your kids to immerse themselves in the arts. Camps offer a great opportunity for your kids to not only spend a good deal of time learning, but often times the friendships that they make at camp will last them a lifetime. Sometimes seeing someone the same age as you that is ahead of you can be a great motivator! That certainly happened to me at the UNT jazz camps and Berklee camps when my classmates were Norah Jones, Robert Glasper, Mike Moreno and McKenzie Smith. Here are some camps that we suggest for your student.
