Summer Music Camps at Community Music Center

Tuition assistance available.

Two locations in San Francisco

Community Music Center offers five music camps full of fun, friendship, and musical discovery. Campers gain musical skills and explore the joys of music under the coaching of some of the best music teachers in the Bay! Kids try out and learn diverse musical styles, such as Afro-Caribbean, Latin, classical, pop, and more! Activities include drums, guitar, singing, musical games, movement, large and small ensemble work, individual coaching, and learning fun musical history lessons.

Camps accommodate a range of experience levels, including no experience necessary! Each camp is a week-long running from late June through July and located in the Mission and Richmond Districts of San Francisco. Young campers can also take private lessons on an instrument and group classes to add to their musical exploration, such as Afro-Caribbean Percussion for Kids and Group Guitar for Kids. For children under 8-years-old, CMC offers an introduction to music class called Music for Children.

Tuition assistance is available for all camps, lessons, and programs.
