SUMMER MUSIC CAMPS FOR TWEENS AND TEENS 2015
The best Summer Camp for Music Luvin' Tweens & Teens from ages 9 - 15 Have children between 4 - 8? Click HERE
In our 2015 Summer Music Camps, with the help of Singer/Songwriter and recording artist Vanessa, (see her bio below) tweens and teens will write their own lyrics and music, sing, play, have a photo shoot, create a promo package, and perform and video tape their song(s) at the end of the week. Writing and performing their original music is a great way to explore extreme creativity, emotions, and expression.
(no previous music experience necessary, but if you play an instrument we would incorporate your instrument into the camp and into the final performance of your original song(s))
PERFORMANCE AND VIDEO TAPING:
Our 2015 Oakville Summer Camp students will be able to show off their original song(s) on the final day of the camp where they can invite their friends and parents to a performance. The songs will be video taped and posted to our website for future viewing pleasure!

Your 2015 Summer Camp Teacher and Teaching Assistant
Vanessa, Piano, Vocal, songwriting, improv, composition
Vanessa is in love with music. She started playing piano when she was four and worked her way to grade 10 RCM. Searching for wider experience, she travelled to India where she became fascinated with classical tabla playing and studied tabla intently both there and back in Vancouver. Although she had always secretly wanted to, she began singing seriously in her early twenties, completing an honours BFA in vocal jazz and improvisation at York University in 2004. She has been teaching voice and piano for over 10 years—tailoring lessons to her students individual needs and interests while weaving in improvisation and composition as important ways of developing musicianship and a personal connection to music. As a musician she has toured in Canada and across the U.S., released five albums, written over a hundred songs, enjoyed some radio play, played in a variety of styles with some wonderful musicians, and is currently performing around Toronto and working on an album of orginal indie pop songs in her band Deciduous, a collaboration with her husband.
