Come as you are...

Enjoy the study, the work, and the companionship. An exciting week of musical exploration for adult learners of piano, cello, violin and viola. The week culminates in an informal concert on Friday afternoon. There is no audition. The workshop is perfect for those (Suzuki parents included) who want to spend a summer week in beautiful Ottawa honing their skills!

During your breaks the Sandy Hill neighbourhood and nearby Parliament Hill and the Byward Market offer a wide variety of diversions: cafés, pubs, museums and galleries.

A few comments from past camps:

"This is a wonderful idea, making music in the lazy, warm, summer days."

"I had a fantastic time and look forward to the next cello boot camp!"

"What a treat and retreat from work; I've really enjoyed the inspiration and advice . . ."

“J'ai beaucoup aimé préparer et jouer la nouvelle pièce pour le choeur de pianos.”

“A terrific experience; I enjoyed it thoroughly!”
