Summer String Intensive

Entering Grades 6 - 12

Are you looking for a way to advance your string playing ability this summer? This online camp is for you!

Under the guidance of FSPA string faculty and other specialists from our community, students will have the chance to learn technique building (like vibrato, bowing and shifting) and spend extra time on composition through the technology of Zoom. Featured guests will join throughout the week. The instruction is intense, but the benefits will be visible as students gain an edge in advancing skills. 

Camp kit includes staff paper, sheet music for warm-ups, and a camp t-shirt. 

Family and friends are invited to showcases of brand-new compositions during the last 30 minutes of class on Friday, July 24 at 3 p.m.
