American Music Camps are a chance to take part in the musical fabric of America. American Music Camp- Baltimore (AMC Baltimore) will host students from grades 1-8 and faculty in a week-long summer program. This is the playing equivalent of Suzuki books 1-4. From old-time music from the Appalachian Mountains to traditional Bluegrass, students will benefit from learning from faculty who perform American Music in all parts of the country. Students will also have the opportunity to play in ensembles and learn how to improvise- no improvisation experience needed! AMC-Baltimore will take place in the enclosed New Century School campus located in the historic Fells Point district in Baltimore, Maryland. The 2019 program will run from August 12th – August 16th.
The American Music Camps have location up and down the east coast and AMC Baltimore is the newest addition to the family. While every American Music Camp has traditional American music at its core, each camp location has its own unique experience to offer. In addition to ensemble playing, group lessons, and jam sessions, AMC Baltimore is proud to include a bucket band and beat boxing to its curriculum to bring a musical facet unique to this region. No matter what your experience level is to American Music, any student will fit right in with tune packets of the jam session tunes sent weeks beforehand to prepare. Each class will be taught by world-class faculty and performers from Baltimore and beyond. For more information, please contact Yoshi at BaltimoreAMC@gmail.com.
