Looking for ways to get your child engaged, laughing and learning this summer? We have created a variety of NEW summer camps to fill young brains with music!!! Camps are taught by professional teaching artists and many camps will include a student showcase at the end of the week for family and friends.

Tuition Assistance 

At Music Works, we believe that music should be available to all members of our community, regardless of their age, skill levels, or economic status, which is why we're happy to offer tuition assistance to those who could otherwise not afford our summer programming.

For families who currently have access to DDA funds, we are excited to be able to accept DDA funds for our summer camps. For more information and application instructions, follow this link

Due to Covid, we will not be offering before and after care this summer.
