The Summer Piano Discoveries Camp at Ole Miss offers students the opportunity to study piano and make new friends in the charming environment of beautiful Oxford, Mississippi, the home of renowned writer William Faulkner. This Camp is designed to both encourage and challenge piano students from the 7th through 12th grades in a wide range of musical activities while leaving time for some fun recreational adventures. Campers will be placed in groups according to age and ability and will receive private lessons, daily master classes, and classes incorporating keyboard literature, music theory, technique, sight-reading, music computer technology, keyboard mechanics, keyboard skills and ensemble playing. Evening performances will include faculty and guest artist recitals culminating in a student recital at the end of the week.
What Makes us Different?
No one can deny the charm and hospitality offered in the small city of Oxford, Mississippi. Home to writers, artists and musicians of all genres, Oxford possesses its own unique appeal and the University, fondly referred to as Ole Miss, provides a safe and nurturing environment. Students will be introduced to new concepts in piano playing, develop listening skills, hear quality musicians in concert and be challenged to take their musicianship to the next level. The activity schedule will vary from day to day to expose students to a wide variety of piano discovery.
We hope to see you in June!
