Summer Music camp is instructional & fun 

Taking enrollment for Summer Music Camp 2020

Whether you're a beginner or advanced player the summer music camp experience will prove to be educational and fun. Students will learn the art of group performance, build listening skills, & play in a band with their peers.  This is a fun and creative way to use what they have learned on their instrument and apply it in band setting.    


The opportunity for each camper to explore music theory, music composition, ear training (listening & timing), and to receive guidance in developing personal expression and musicianship through playing popular songs with other campers.

Musicianship is about preparing students not just to be players of an instrument but to play well with others, be aware of musical surroundings and hone listening skills.  Students have many opportunities to develop their skills throughout the summer music camp and the final showcase performance.  Each student’s individual talents are refined by our coaching staff and challenged to be the best they can be.

Face Arts Music summer music camp is high-energy,  fun, warm-hearted, spirited and inspiring.  In this environment our students place emphasis on musicianship, personal responsibility and supporting one another with constructive suggestions.

Our outstanding staff models the behaviors we expect to see in every camper, setting the right example by keeping to our core values of musicianship and strong ethics in every area. Our campers learn life lessons of great value--but don't tell them they are learning!  They're too busy having fun making music with coaches: Frank Natter Jr. , Frank Natter Sr, and Hillyn Natter. Our coaches will guide these young musicians for a week of fun filled music learning. Face Arts Music has been established since 2000, our teachers have combined over 40 years of teaching experience.   Our returning campers speak for our program and with that, ever year there is more to learn and fun to have. Our summer music program has been running 9 successful years, and our expert staff are professional music educators as well as performers.
