Great Fiddle Tunes of  The Beatles


The Beatles helped shape music for everyone that came after them. Every kid knows at least one Beatles tune and we're going to fiddle and sing lots of them!

This camp will be performing at the OSF Green Show on June 27.

Jump Start Camps

for beginners

For kids just starting out on the violin, there will be 2 camps this summer. The camps will introduce the violin and basic music concepts to new musicians.

These camps are ideal for children 5 & up who are somewhere between "never played the violin before" and "have started violin, but not able to play a D-scale, yet."
