We are excited to offer our fourth annual summer music camp at Otterbein University, June 6-10, 2016. The camp caters to guitarists (classical and jazz), string players (violin, cello, viola, bass), pianists (classical), vocalists (classical) and composers. 

Our classes will focus on theory and ear-training (including jazz theory), musicians' health, and music technology.  All summer music participants will also have the option to participate in a choir.  The camp will end with a student recital on Friday, June 10 at 3:00pm in Riley Auditorium, Battelle Fine Arts Center.

New this year: we are offering an overnight option in which students may elect to stay in dorms on campus, with Resident Assistant supervision at all times.
