National Conservatory of Arts Summer Music Programs
Offering an award-winning and innovative music curriculum, NCA’s Summer Camps, and Summer Evening Music Programs propel children towards musical literacy and excellence.  We offer piano, guitar, voice, musical theater, and strings summer camps and programs to children from 6 – 14.  We specialize in fun, yet informative music camp experiences.
All 2018 camps will take place at our NW Location (1810 16th Street NW, 3rd Floor, Washington DC, 20009).
This Suzuki workshop, which students may register for 1 week or all 4 weeks, encourages beginners to learn a chosen instrument, as well as encourage more experienced music students to fine-tune their playing in a supportive and fun atmosphere. The dedicated faculty helps each student and family reach new musical heights. The workshop is open to pianists, violinists, violists, cellists, string bassists, and flute from the complete beginner/Pre–Twinklers through Suzuki Book 5.
A typical day includes: 
– Semi-private Lesson
– Music and Movement
– Theory
– Group Class
– Chorus
– Master Class
Experienced and Advanced students who already reading music may qualify for our “Symphony” program. This program may require enrollment in both the Suzuki and Orchestra Programs. After morning Suzuki activities, bridge students end their day playing in the orchestra and perform in the camp-wide concert at the end of each weekly session.
