Can I play two instruments at camp?
We encourage students to try new things and take lessons on a new instrument. We call this a second instrument. For example, if you would like to try guitar lessons (second instrument) during camp but play trombone (primary instrument) in your school orchestra, you can request to play your primary instrument in the workshop and still take lessons on a new second instrument.
How do I get an instrument?
All campers must supply their own instruments. For new instruments, we recommend both Music & Arts and The Music Shop. A borrowed/pre-owned instrument is great, just make sure it is in good working order. If you need assistance purchasing one online, just send Mr. Jacobsen a link(s) to what you are thinking about buying.
