Summer Piano Camp

The Nazareth Summer Piano Camp is designed for students who enjoy playing the piano and sharing common interests with their peers. From the curious keyboard musician who has been taking weekly lessons to the more advanced player seriously considering a career in music, our students will tap into their own curiosity and creativity as they seek to expand versatility at the instrument. Our goal is to offer the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and experience in the language of music and the tools of music-making.
