What's a "Hybrid" Summer Music Camp?


We have always eagerly awaited summers and our music camps as a time for young musicians to come together and create, play and socialize with others. Our Ukulele Camps, Guitar Camps, Songwriting/Recording Camps and Rock Band Camps have always been fun and popular ways to encourage and develop creative self expression at Ballantyne School of Music these past 10 summers! But, due to the current environment, today's camps need to be different.


We are currently living in a world where many families are choosing to continue to stay home, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In March of 2020, we took over 400 students online for their private music lessons, while we stayed safely at home to slow the spread.  Parents and students actually loved the virtual lesson experience, and some have chosen to continue for health reasons, flexibility when traveling, or simply for the convenience of learning from home, even though businesses are reopening.


Although we do believe that in-person lessons and camps are best and most effective, we are excited to be able to accommodate all families this summer - especially those who are traveling!  Our "Hybrid" Summer Music Camps provide families with the option of attending in person, virtually via Zoom, or a combination of both!

~ A $50 deposit is required at the time of enrollment.  This deposit is fully refundable within 30 days of the first day of camp with written withdrawal from the camp (or if the camp is cancelled for any reason). The balance of summer camp tuition will be charged to the card on file two weeks prior to the first day of camp and is non-refundable, once camp has started.
