Oboe Camps- Beginner, 7th/8th Grade - August 1st-5th 2022

 Join us for a week of music making as students learn skills and make friendships! 

Daily camp at Danielson Middle School. 

Students gain ownership over there playing, learn to improve their ear, and mastery of the oboe. 

Intonation and time are best developed in a small group, and the camp gives students a great opportunity to hone their skills with individual attention for a healthy approach to music making.
