Register Now!

The Aspiring Musicians Program Camp is a day camp for students ages 9-17 years who have played their instruments for at least one year and are able to read music. This five-day camp provides students an opportunity to perform with other talented students, receive class instruction in instrumental technique, and explore music through musicianship classes. Time spent studying and rehearsing culminates in a concert for parents and friends on Friday. Camp instructors will include faculty members of the MSU Community Music School-Detroit.





Groove-in-a-Week at AMP CAMP


Kids! Want to sing your favorite pop song, strum a little guitar and give a performance in just a week? Well, here's your opportunity!


This all-new groove group at AMP Summer Camp is for kids with no prior musical experience, but who would like an introduction to music and performance fundamentals.

Kids will learn their way around a guitar at this camp, as well as vocal chops such as proper breathing, execution, expression and stage presence. Students will also enjoy the summer music camp experience by participating in Career Day, songwriting, theory, a field trip and a finale concert!
