Designed for students of all levels, from beginners to seasoned artists, this program is taught by real musicians using the unique B2R method, which will have students playing full songs in no time! Students are placed in a band according to their age and skill level and the requirements of ensemble playing, teamwork and achievement of musical objectives are stressed. Depending on ability level, development of original material is strongly encouraged. Each weekly session culminates in a public performance and the recording of a CD. This camp is split into two age categories: for kids 7 - 9 and 9+.

B2R Camps on VOA
"We really enjoyed camp. It offered much more than simply singing. There were 'getting to know you' games, daily lunches 'out,' walks around the pond, t-shirt making, CD recording, poster-making, and even auditions. It was a really good camp and great opportunity for my daughter to be exposed to singing in a group. And the public concert at the end of the week was also a nice performance opportunity. Overall a definite positive experience, and I have already recommended the camp to another mom. :)"

"Everything is pretty good: instructors, front desk, very friendly and patient. My son likes the camp so much that he will definitely come back next summer."

"Although I believe all the music programs and lessons are very good, I especially appreciate the summer camp program, since that is what got my daughter interested in performing in a band and playing guitar."

"We were very happy with the Glee Club camp our daughter just completed, and especially felt that the instructor, Alex, did a terrific job. The arrangements and his accompaniment for the two songs were wonderful, and he clearly understood how to make the most of each child's abilities. We also thought that the activities of auditioning for the solos, recording a CD of the two songs, designing a CD cover, making show posters and decorating t-shirts to wear on show day were fun activities and great experience for our daughter, who loved the camp!"
